qA must-read for fans of Doctor Who and Percy Jackson. Prepare to fall in love with this universe-spanning, high-octane, science-fantasy adventure.q Arthur Paladin doesn't fit in. Not at home with the ultra-strict grandmother who had to raise him after his mother died and his dad disappeared. And not at school where the teachers think he's nothing but trouble and the other kids think he's a freak. But every night he dreams about learning amazing things, the sort of things you need to know to save the world. Then Arthur discovers his grandmother is sending him to military school, which leads to a fight with his qperfectq cousin, which leads to the mysterious plate over his heart getting broken, which leads to ... his whole world turning upside down. Shadow creatures appear out of nowhere to kill him. An angelic being from another dimension begs for his help. He gets locked in a house that looks like an English cottage on the outside but is actually a mansion on the inside, and it's traveling away from Earth, across the universe. The house is packed with shadowy monsters, and he's only got Morgan Apple to help him -- Morgan Apple who apparently sits beside him every day just to call him a moron. And that's when life gets really weird. That's when Arthur finds out he's the next Multiversal Paladin. keywords: teen, fantasy, adventure, space opera, science fiction, middle grade, young adult, ya, potter, star warsYou pick one up at WalMart, and it already has minutes on it, and the numbera#39;s not attached to your name, so if youa#39;re a criminal you can be anonymous and aa aYes, I know what the term means ...
