Jimmy, a 12-year-old, is discovering a new way of learning. By listening and observing he sees beyond this world, but is immersed in it more than ever.
The story offers kids a valuable lesson in raising their awareness about the world around them. This is a nice introduction to teaching kids to look at the world and ask questions in their effort to "figure it all out."
None, really, except that it kept putting this reviewer to sleep.

The premise is great, and the book moves smoothly, but it put me to sleep after a couple of pages every time I picked it up.
This is a book about self discovery and growing up.
The book is designed to reach kids at their level, offering them an avenue of exploration that has no limits.

Borrow or skip it. There are lots of great books for this target group; this one isn't among them.
