Michael Shale looks like a sixth grader.
On the outside.
Inside, he holds a biological secret, that could change the world.
Senator John Perkins, the head of a committee on military development, covets the genetic secret that Michael hides and will not stop pursuing until he’s captured— again.
Charleen Therry, the school counselor, befriends the mysterious sixth-grader and uncovers a history of lies, false identities, and a relentless pursuit by a shadowy government organization that covers a thousand miles and the colorful decades of the sixties and seventies.
If the Senator captures Michael again, a god-like power may be granted to greedy men who would only abuse it.
And Michael would rather die than let that happen.
When he's discovered, Charleen and a special person from his past convince Michael to stop running and to start fighting. If they fail, Michael just may get his death wish.
