Law of the Land

A Novella by

Do this. Don't do that.
Twelve-year-old Jeremy Townsend is sick of rules. Sick of being told what to do. Sick of being punished. But that's his life.

That is until Jeremy follows a seldom trodden path in the woods and plummets into the world of Y'Chrana. In Y'Chrana, there are no rules. Stay up all night. Sleep all day. Eat whatever you want... all the time. It's a dream come true.

But Jeremy's Y'Chranian friend Neil is hiding something. And everything isn't as it seems. After all, living in a lawless world can be hazardous to your health.

BONUS CONTENT: Middle School Teachers, this version of Law of the Land also includes a full lesson plan. This story is perfect for teaching "theme," and can also be used to provide rationale for your class disciplinary policy.

About the Author: Wayne Thomas Batson is a bestselling author of young adult fantasy and adventure novels. He's sold half a million books and counting, including the bestselling Door Within Trilogy. If you're a fan of Batson's fiction, you'll love Law of the Land.

About Batson's Short Fiction: "I wrote these stories for my students (Batson has taught middle school Reading & English for 22 years) long before the novels. I needed good, high interest stories to supplement the curriculum, so I wrote my own. Little did I expect that students would become so fond of the stories. I began to infuse each tale with cues for reading comprehension strategies (predicting, inferring, connecting, etc.), literary elements (plot, character, setting, etc.), and writing techniques (the 6+1 traits, figures of speech, suspense tactics, etc)... all to allow dozens of "teachable moments" in each story. For middle or high school teachers who purchase these short stories, feel free to print a class set for your kids. Enjoy!" --Wayne Thomas Batson
