Publisher's Summary

Steve just wants to save his baby brother - but what will he lose in the bargain? This is a haunting gothic tale for fans of Coraline, from acclaimed author Kenneth Oppel (Silverwing, The Boundless).
For some kids summer is a sun-soaked season of fun. But for Steve it's just another season of worries. Worries about his sick newborn baby brother, who is fighting to survive; worries about his parents, who are struggling to cope; even worries about the wasp's nest looming ominously from the eaves. So when a mysterious wasp queen invades his dreams, offering to "fix" the baby, Steve thinks his prayers have been answered.
All he has to do is say yes. But yes is a powerful word. It is also a dangerous one. And once it is uttered, can it be taken back?
Celebrated author Kenneth Oppel creates an eerie masterpiece in this compelling story that explores disability and diversity, fears and dreams, and what ultimately makes a family.

Different Story

I found it strange but it is well written. I kept wondering about the mental health of Steve. However, there are people out there who will enjoy this more than I did so I'm not going to judge it harshly. It is well written.

weird

Narrator was great. Reminded me of Metamorphosis. Not sure I would recommend it to middle schoolers.
