Fifteen-year-old Kaspian Aaby walks out of a repressive summer camp for troubled teens and into the Maine woods. He awakens the next morning to find that four days have passed and he is 60 miles from where he should be. It was no dream, his strange nocturnal experience of mysterious beings that may be malevolent fairies or aliens, an angel, and the ghost of his dead father. Frightened, Kaspian's born-again stepmother exiles him to an authoritarian private school in Virginia, where obsessed alien-abduction investigators, extremist educational theorists, and paranoid politicians seek to use him for their own purposes. But Kaspian has allies and abilities that even he has not guessed at.|
Richard Grant is the acclaimed author of Through the Heart (which received the Philip K. Dick Award), Tex and Molly in the Afterlife, and In the Land of Winter (in which Kaspian plays a small but crucial role).
