Grade ten isn’t turning out the way Ben hoped. His best friend is no longer Ben’s roommate but has been replaced by a strange boy who follows him everywhere. The girl he likes returns to school with a boyfriend, and his jealousy awakens the dragon fire within him. That fire and the scales peeking out from under his shirtsleeves are making it increasingly difficult to keep his secret.
Ben must go to his mother’s home world to learn how to transform into a dragon. If the training comes too late, he could turn into something that is neither human nor dragon.
