From the Author
Writing this book was such a labor of love. You sound like a lunatic when you say things like "Smitty is making me crazy. I'm so frustrated with him!" when you are the one who created him. I used to poo-poo people in my creative writing classes when they would say that characters will do things you don't like or don't expect or that a story will go off in a direction you don't expect. This book taught me in such painful way that all of that is completely true. There are events that happen in this book that I didn't want to write, things that hurt my heart, things that made me angry at fictional characters I was creating, but it was true to the story. I couldn't not write those things. I couldn't make the characters do something that wasn't true to them. I'm happy with the end result, but some of those things still make me sad, but in a good way.
From the Back Cover
"So if you could choose to meet any character here, who would it be?" Ozzie asked."Any character?" Taryn asked curiously."Sure.""I honestly don't know. Kind of changes the game now that we potentially could, doesn't it? What's that saying? Don't meet your heroes."Having survived their adventures in Leleplar, Taryn and Ozzie have moved on with their lives...for the most part. Life back in their own world has not come without its own share of problems, however. Just as Ozzie is trying to figure out which path to take in life, he and Taryn are dropped back into an unbelievable other-world. This time, though, their friend Smitty has been dragged along for the ride. How will they react when they encounter characters from literature in our own world? How will those characters react to them?
