Jan is angry at everyone. Her mom and sister suffer the most. In a fit of rage, Jan stomps off to her room. When she wakes up, she's home, but it's not real. Everything is hard and cold and gray. The people look different. They are square, short. And they are dying. They need her help. Only a human can cure them. Jan wants no part of it. But the machine that brought her there is broken. She has no choice. Jan learns that helping others will also help her overcome her own pain. This series of short novels was designed to engage a broad spectrum of struggling readers. No longer will upper-elementary students have to read material junior to their maturity and interests. Characters are age appropriate and come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Science ficion, sports, paranormal, realistic life, historical fiction, and fantasy are just a few of the many genres. Books are no higher than a 1.5 reading level, with illustrations on every spread that support visual literacy and draw kids into the text. Each book is around 70 pages.
