Lu Zimmer’s best friend moved away last summer. Salman Page is the new kid in school. Blos Pease takes everything literally. Three kids on the fringe of the middle school social order find each other and warily begin to bond. Then, through no fault of their own, Salman and Lu become pawns in a game of jealous one-upmanship between Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of Faery. The mischievous Puck with the help of a magical crow tries to keep the peace, but at what cost to the kids?
Loosely based on the changeling’s tale in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this is a story of magical intervention in the least magical of settings: a public middle school.
For ages 9 and up.
