"Dylan's Claim"


"Dylan is 15.  He looks like he's 12 and has the computer chair posture of a 70 year old.  Geoff is 14 verging 15 pushing 16 in his armpits.  They take gifted kid summer school for the class of 2009, with  two battered egos to prove it.

Dr. Ben is 25, a teacher with no papers for that prefix.  John Locke is 376 but still unraveling mysteries 6,500 years old, so long as you go by the Bible.  The reed hidden seawall discovered by Dylan is ageless in all ways that matter.

This is a novella about property - physical, emotional, and vocational.  If you don't make a claim for what's rightfully yours, how ever will you know your own boundaries?"
