Last week, I wrote about Juniper Chadwell and Caleb Ketterbridge, both of who have Asperger’s and live in their own fantasy worlds, rejecting their families and the world they live in.

Now comes the time that both kids are taken away from their fantasies and shoved into a world that is completely different from the world that they imagined.

Which occurs in chapter 2.

As for Janette, she ends up going to a strange boarding school at the edge of a large city. (I’ll have more about Janette later.)

But Juniper and Caleb are removed from their homes and families by otherworldly forces and as such, they end up in a completely different world from where they had came from. For Juniper, she had spent most of her life obsessed with her favorite book, “The Trees of Light“. But she ends up in a world that is far different than the books that she was obsessed with, and it shocks her, to say in the least.

As for Caleb, he discovers that he is a missing fairy prince, lost when the fairy realm that he once lived in was destroyed in a terrible war. As a result, he was  taken away to the Earth world as a child and placed with a family that was ordered to keep him hidden away until he was 12 years old.

But on his 12th birthday, he was kidnapped by several fairies, who killed his family and took him to a strange new world.

As for Juniper, after a particularly humiliating day at school, she decides that instead of going home, she decides to go to an area behind her neighborhood, a local hangout spot for teenagers. There, she vanishes without a trace; no one ever sees her again.

She ends up in a world that is completely different from the books that she’s read, a world filled with political intrigue and the return of magic (not unlike “Game of Thrones“).

As for what happens to them in their new worlds, I’ll have it for you at a later date.
