“How Did You Celebrate Your Fifth Twelfth Birthday?”
Jobee Abrams spent his sitting at the Captain’s Table of a luxury spaceliner, wearing a dorky make-believe uniform and being fawned over by rich old ladies. His birthday wish was that maybe someday, against all odds, he might perhaps be allowed to turn thirteen. But things are about to look up for young Jobee– a crudely-machined harpoon head and a
band of pirates will soon thrust him onto his long, painful unicycle
ride into manhood.
Space is deep and blood truly is thicker than water in Jobee’s universe, but the greatest conundrums of all lie concealed deep in the dreams and aspirations of ordinary men and women. Will Jobee master these mysteries and his own heart along with them?
Or will he remain a child forevermore?
