Into the Blue Somewhere
by Catherine Becker Reynolds
Victory, age 12, imagines an idyllic land far from Earthly life's daily conflicts. When personal tragedy sweeps in, he finds himself transported there. It's a too-weird place where time and space are royally skewed. And people? They can be scary. Victory just wants to know: Why aren't humans happy, even when they're given their heart's desire? Back home, he finds an answer he doesn't expect.
