Scott is a typical eleven-year-old boy who pulls the reader with him into a world of spiritual awakenings of the body and mind. He accidentally falls through a portal and takes a scary journey into another dimension inhabited by creatures who attempt to destroy his spirit. But then, magical creatures who speak and sing their conversations teach Scott about feelings and emotions and the importance of exercise to build endorphins—the body’s natural stress relievers. Throughout his travels he explores good and evil, and experiences a personal transformation.
