“Write the vision and make it plain. . . so he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2
When Pete Plain, a twelve-year-old with “two left feet,” gets his hands on a colorful but illegal comic book, he can’t resist taking a peek inside. What happens next changes his entire life.
The boy who was never very good at anything gets taken on a journey far beyond his wildest dreams. As people from his past connect with people from the present, he struggles to understand what is happening. The more truth he uncovers, the more challenges he faces. Can he find help from another realm, with friends to help him overcome his fears and face the bullies in his life?
The visions Pete encounters on his comic book journey impart fresh hope to him, giving him strength to forgive and speed to help in time of need.
As his home life crumbles, he has nowhere to look but up. But will his natural tendency to look down get in the way?
And what about the boys shooting kids with toxic slime? Can Pete put an end to their mean pranks before it’s too late, or will the bitter malady known as Sadly Absent Dad Syndrome keep him from fulfilling his destiny?
With evil forces threatening to disable him, Pete faces an important choice. He can either allow the guilt of past mistakes to disable him or he can choose to rise above it.
Along the way he realizes that he has far to go. But he has a vision he can reach if he runs with it, moving step by step toward his goal.
One touch begins Pete’s journey. Who knows where it will end?
We all have a mission in life. The first step to fulfilling it is to find out what it is.
