“Nothing special” is the best way to describe Owen Reeder—at least that's what he's been told all his life. When a stranger visits his father's bookstore, Owen's ordinary life spirals out of control and right into a world he didn't even know existed. Owen believes the only gift he possesses is his ability to devour books, but he is about to be forced into a battle that will affect two worlds: his and the unknown world of the Lowlands. Perfect for readers ages 10 to 14 who enjoy a fast-paced story packed with action, fantasy, and humor.

By this means there was a reasonable certainty that no uncovered bank remained between the subaqueous work and upper revetment. Toward the end of the season's work, when the river had risen to within a few feet of the top of the bank and it was impracticable to either grade or pave, the ribbon mats were use'd exclusively to join the dry bank to the main mattress work.
