Trapped in an alternative universe where New England is at war, two young boys must find their way home. But first, they must help New England win the war.

Larry Barnes has made a spectacular discovery—an invisible portal to a parallel universe, where Burger King is Burger Queen, cell phones are huge, and his hometown doesn't look anything like the place where he lives.

When Larry returns, he tells his best friend, Kevin, who convinces him to re-enter The Portal. What could go wrong?

This time, Larry and Kevin enter a world devoid of modern technology, where "America" doesn't exist, and New England is losing a war against Canada and New Portugal. Unable to get back to The Portal, they offer their knowledge to the New England army in order to survive and gain hope of returning home.

But when the ambitious lieutenant using their services discovers just how valuable Larry and Kevin's knowledge is, he changes the plan.

Publisher Note: Contains mild violence and is most appropriate for readers 13+. Fans of Octavia Butler, John Dreese, John Birmingham and Marc Stiegler as well as David R. Bernsteinwill enjoy The Portal Series.
