HUDSON- At just four year’s old Hudson High School Senior, Jake Marrazo, wrote his first children’s book. “One Wants to be a Letter”. In the kids book, One tries to be a letter, but in the end, he realizes he loves being a number and being yourself is a good thing.

When Jake was eight years-old, he had to over come some major health struggles. Jake was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is a rare, progressive disease that causes the muscles to weaken. Jake has lost his ability to walk and now needs a wheelchair. Jake actually dedicated his book to his nephew who also has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Jake says, he loves watching his nephew grow and teaches him to embrace his differences.

Jake and his family are enjoying the reaction of kids from across the country learning from his book. They say that readers should expect a sequel to, One Wants to be a Letter", in the years to come.
