Overview

Sixteen-year-old Barney can't remember life before the Complex, an experimental clinlc. He knows he's different--he's the control subject. Then he uncovers a terrible secret about himself, a secret that drives him to fulfill his and his fellow subjects' ultimate dream. The Bumblebee must fly!

Sixteen-year-old Barney has only fleeting memories about his past but, as a voluntary patient at the institute for experimental medicine, he knows he is different from the terminally ill patients surrounding him. His involvement with the bitter, slowly dying, Mazzo brings Barney hope, pain, and a moment of heroic glory.

    Still Gets Me After All These Years

    I read this book voluntarily when it was released in 1984 and I must say, after all these years, that has to be one of the best books i've read, and I have read many. I recommend this book for everyone, especially if you like books with unexpected twists and turns. I must tell you, that ending still haunts me!

    Okay, I can't say that this book is cheery, but it is extremely well-written and you care about all of the characters. I have re-read it several times, and it never fails to catch me up in its magic.

    Medicine Den

    This secluded den is stocked with fresh herbs almost daily. There's a convenient water pool, several beds of moss, and is very homey.
