Meet Tommy Travers, a recluse holed up in his room with his nose stuck in a book. Friends, girls, girlfriends, Tommy doesn’t want anything do with any of it. His picture of paradise is reading from sun-up to sundown. The only thing that could make life better would be living inside his books away from the real world and all the questions about his father’s disappearance.
On his 15th birthday, Tommy is granted his greatest wish. He is pulled into the World of Books and thrust into a battle of man and beast. Wizards, warriors, and poisoned daggers are very real in the World of Books. When Tommy is finally pulled out, he accidentally brings with him a curse that Tommy must undo or watch his own world tear itself apart around him.
