Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn''t change the facts: Joe''s still the kid in school that can''t fit in. He''s the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there''s the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with. So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys – from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that''s been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn''t take his meds?
