Alex is different. An introspective, nine-year old loner whose parents have a difficult time bonding with him. Dad thinks he’s too small, Mom thinks he asks too many questions and brother Marcus just thinks he’s a nerd.

All that changes when he’s abducted by aliens and wakes on a different planet, along with ninety-nine other children. Then he meets Xilam, a beautiful alien woman whose mission it is to train the children for a particular task.

Unfortunately, it’s going to take a very long time. How long? As long as it takes to learn to read minds and teach others how to change the world he comes from.
