Two boys with nothing in common join forces to search for a missing classmate. They discover a world governed by both magic and logic. There, they find the one thing they do have in common is the only thing that is important. This story begins on Earth (or an Earth analogue), a few months after “The Book of Heroes: George of Sedona,” . It is not essential, but perhaps useful, to have read at least the first chapter of that story before reading this one.
