The Lonely Book is the forty seventh book by Jacob Newman. 

Summary: 

Over the course of a summer, Jake Havoc travels around the world, from the murky depths of the ocean to the great heights of the city. Along the way, he works with his strange ghosts, copies of himself that follow him wherever he goes. As war rages in the city, Jake's isolated world and the conflict of the rebels and heroes collide in the strangest of ways. In a story laced with metaphors and symbols, Jake finds that actions often have great consequences, and changing yourself can often lead to change in the world around you.
