Jack has spent his life bouncing from foster home to foster home - never really settling down and making friends. He has been with Miss Edna for a few years now and just becoming comfortable with where his life is heading when everything changes. He comes home to an eerie calm, sees men appear from nowhere, and soon sees monsters! Just as the small boy who lived under the stairs Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, this small foster boy is called on to save the world.

Perhaps I am more aware of it, but as is typical, I found a few more editing errors (grammar issues) than I would like to see in a completed book. Fortunately, they weren't pervasive enough to ruin the flow of the reading. Students who love the fantasy of Harry Potter and The Lord of the RingsThe Lord of the Rings but aren't quite at those reading levels will enjoy this more accessible book.
