High school freshman Jane Grey is all set to paint the town red with a fresh new look and her great old boyfriend. That is, until a freckle faced boy comes along and throws a wrench in the works. Jane has to look a lot further afield than her math book to figure this one out.
Freshman Jane Grey is sure she is starting off her high school career on the right foot - that is, until a boy makes fun of her shoes. Things go from bad to worse when she steps on the toes of the class bully. How's a math genius going to solve this problem?
Half-human, half-cat, Toby is a plucky critter on a mission. When a Voice calls to him to go and find ‘them’, he is ready and willing to go, even though he doesn’t know yet who ‘they’ are. As Toby explores a world completely unlike the one he grew up in, his spiritual and physical adventures teach him much about himself. Fast-paced with vivid description, the story keeps the reader engaged. The vocabulary and theme can sometimes be elevated, so parents may want to read Toby along with their child. Reminiscent of both The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Phantom Tollbooth, Toby will appeal to kids of all ages.
