What would you do if you were sixteen and you came across someone in the woods that changed your perspective of life completely? Someone that made you realize what you thought was real wasn't actually reality. What I did was write about it, and it's all here in this book.
I put all the original sketches in here too - over seventy illustrations by me, Tonya and Astol.
Earth 5 is awesome. I hope you like it too.

"Mrs. Fischmann couldn't stand me. I got in an argument with her over whether periods should go inside quotation marks or outside. I told her if it was my writing I could put them wherever I wanted." (1) This is basically a collection of whimsical anecdotes--not really stories, per se. They pretty much read like the journal entries of young boy. In "Tonya," a boy recalls a dream about a bug and this one girl. "Los Angeles" relays a sudden move and a boy's threat to divorce his parents. Like I said, these are not stories as they're entirely too quick; they're more like snippets. I guess this is what they call Flash Fiction, which is not something that I strive to get into. Nonetheless, some of these were appealing, so appealing, in fact, that I wish the author had extended the details further. Some of the themes were just too funny while others were just plain boring, and then there were some that were just too weird. I'm not sure if these are worth reading as I had mixed feelings about them. It's like they never got me over the peak of the mountain; they started off one way, climbed a few steps up, and then just stopped. Where did I go? Where else could I go but down? I guess these are okay if you like "quickies."
