When things are terrible, you live inside your head.
Sim lives in the world inside his head. It's really special and people want it.
A flawed boy, furious with life, is imprisoned by a family and society who despise him.
Worlds come together, worlds move apart and Sim finds freedom. He doesn't know if he can escape the past or future. He doesn't know if he can change but he does know that he has to. He is hurtled into the first good place he's ever known. A world of kindness where friends teach him to be happy and shield him from the peril of his own wild brilliance. But deep within his mind Sim knows he'll always be alone - the threat- the stranger.
Worlds crash together; worlds wrench apart, but no world is safe for Sim. There's no escape from the past ,from the future nor from those who will hunt him through every reality to own him. Truth and lies, allies and enemies, right and wrong. Who can tell the difference? Sim can't .
He knows his one safe place is the world within his mind and that he will do anything- anything at all, to save it.
