14-year-old Frankie Turnbull is fascinated with magic wands and he has an uncanny talent for creating them, as the enchanted beings have assured him with their gentle instructions. But great power brings terrible consequences, and Frankie must learn to face his. Originally published by Residential Aliens, this story has been described as "very well written, understated and poignant." While Frankie's fantastical problem seems unusual for a 21st Century small-town kid, there is something universal at the heart of his troubles and something very real about his reaction to them.
