Fiction, of course, but for any normal child suddenly disfigured the fight to accept and create a new kind of order in his or her world is real. All kids need heroes and unwittingly Alex becomes one to his family and friends.

They save Mario's house from drowning; try out a new slingshot; use Alex's new "stealth technology-shaped" body to beat the tag-out in baseball games; get locked out of their motel room, after they got out of the hot tub in twenty-degree weather and waking up all the motel guests.

Among other characters are; old Mr. Delaney; Jo Jo, Alex's brother; Sidonia, Alex's baby sister; Mr. Messier's chickens; and Larissa, a ghost who becomes Alex's friend, all play a role in Alex's new life where he walks a fine line between participation in the boys' activities and suspicious observation of Zach's schemes. Ms Brettmann grew up with an older brother surrounded by boys from the neighborhood where she was raised by her father, a scientist, with whom she spent hours talking about his work and evolution. After graduating from Northwestern University she and her husband moved to Seattle. They raised two sons and were both active in soccer and a Boy Scout troop. She continued her education and received her master's degree.
