Excerpt


Exactly one hour later, six raggedy looking teenagers showed up out of nowhere in the astral, sitting on the ground near a farm. For a moment, they weren't quite sure where they were. Then it all came back to them. The gravel underneath their legs was leaving imprints like always. They smelled hay. It was a sure sign they were 'there.'

The Emergency Meeting Place.

The group surveyed the landscape, and it appeared exactly as it was supposed to be. The field over the hill lay behind Mira's childhood home. Then they caught themselves staring at each other because of the sheer scale of difference between their before and after appearances.

"Wow." Jonathan spoke first. He gaped at Michael, who, true to his word, had come back at about sixteen-years-old. Even his clothes were teenage clothes. "You've learned some things haven't you!" He was impressed.

"From Mira," answered Michael. "And apparently you have too." Jonathan looked obviously older than Michael. If Michael had to guess, he would say Jonathan was nineteen or twenty. "But, I've re-thought this, and maybe I am going to return to age twelve. It’s closer to Mira's age, and I can build more rapport with her."

He didn't mention that also he just plain missed her. If they were both twelve, well, hopefully her former crush on him when they were younger would manifest this time too. In real life she was older than him, though not by much. That was the weirdness of the astral. Playing with ages got really complicated.

Michael amazed the others as he shrunk. Suddenly he wasn't sixteen anymore. Jonathan knew the technique, but the others were in awe.

"Can I do that too?" asked Zac, who was changing into the clothes he brought. Jonathan noted his older clothes were hanging off of him. Zac was the only other one at about age twelve. He was also the only one who hadn't seemed to travel into the correct clothes. He had arrived still wearing his adult attire. Somehow his traveling skills were a bit behind the others, who looked their appropriate ages.

"No," said Michael. "You are the cousin I have that is Mira's age. The more people her age the better."

Trina laughed at Zac's adult clothes falling off. "Okay, Mr. Hobo, about ready there?" she teased.

Then she turned to Onie. "Wow, you're suddenly a cougar , aren't you,?" she said laughing, for Onie had turned up as age sixteen, four years older than her husband.

"Ha, ha," said Zac.

"Yeah, forgive me if I wait until we're back into the real world to um—oh never mind," said Onie.

"So you do only love me for my body!" teased Zac.

"Well," said Jonathan, getting everyone back on track, "we have to be careful how we introduce ourselves to Mira. It needs to be like it was before; except atour current astral age, so we don't freak her out. I'm not sure where she would end up if she got confused and upset, but it wouldn't be good."

"Right," said Michael. He popped a few more Tums. "She could end up in a forest or a storm. Or alone in the desert—you never know what the unconscious will do, so everyone needs to concentrate hard because Mira won't be able to. So I will find her first and try to develop our old rapport. Knowing her, she will want to learn, and then I'll introduce her to Jonathan like before."

"Let's write this down," said Lu.

"I have paper and pen," said Onie.

Lu looked at the group. "We really haven't changed much personality-wise. There's Onie with supplies on hand, Jonathan ordering us around, and Zac falling apart." She laughed.

"I think it will be easiest if we think of this like a play. We all have our parts that are mimicking how we met and acted before. Only don't forget how serious it is," said Trina.

"I agree," said Michael.

The group spent the next hour recalling their collective memories, remembering the old days, and then reenacted some of their initial encounters with Mira. Michael decided to leave out some of the negative events so as not to traumatize Mira. In the end, they had a plan.

"Does everyone feel comfortable with this?" asked Lu.

"Do you mean, do I feel comfortable as a nineteen-year-old?" said Jonathan. "Hell, yeah. Loving this."

Everyone laughed. Perturbed, Zac spoke. "I'm surprised that I'm only twelve. I thought I'd be older. Why am I the only one that was automatically so young?"

Jonathan answered, "Well, it is representative of your inner evolution, so physically you may be older, but astrally, in this world, you haven't really done that much more traveling or advanced your learning so you haven't particularly grown intellectually or evolutionally 'here.' And remember," he added, "when Michael first came back, he was twelve too. And look at him now—he can stretch to any age."

Zac frowned. His wife saw and added, "It's not a bad thing, Zac. Some people get older and can't go back because they've lost their sense of wonder and attitude of learning. Other people never grow up because they never mature. I think we are right where we are supposed to be, and you never know, this adventure may change us a bit."

"Yeah, hopefully in a good way," Zac acquiesced.

Lu and Trina at sixteen voiced no complaints.

"Actually, Onie, this may come in handy, because you know we are not exactly the same ages as when we first met Mira, except for me, so I think Zac being closer to her age is a good thing," said Michael.

"That's a good thought," said Zac. "I feel better."

Jonathan was gathering his things and making moves to go. "It's getting late. Is everyone clear on what to do? And the order to do it in?"

There were nods all around. Michael added, "Okay, from now on, I am twelve-year-old Michael. Is everyone also clear where to sleep tonight, how to eat, and all the practical things? We sleep in the real world, eat in the real world, but if anyone can, someone should bring some real food to the astral next time."

Jonathan volunteered to try.

"Okay, unless there are any last concerns, let's get this show on the road," said Trina.

Onie had one last comment. "Everyone remembers our name, right? We loved it at the time and believed we were so slick. Mira liked it."

Michael remembered back to his younger self. "The High Five Gang."

My Thoughts


Erasing: Shadow is  really complex novele. There is some many characters and story lines. Eveything start when Michael and Mira's son desappears in strange way. Then, Mira also desappears, and is up to Michael to find his wife and son quickly enough before it's to late. To compete that task, he called his old friends, The High Five Gang, to help with it.

Like I said before, this novele is really complex, so much thing going on and if you're not really paying attention, you're going to get lost as well as Mira. The book goes around the fact that Michael's wife is losted and he has to find her. Now, I really like it, and I like the mistery that the author can bring with it, however, what I didn't like is the lot of things that happend over there. Was like they solve something and then another thing happend. We never get a relax momento on it, and it could be both good and bad. But I think it is too much.

But I really like the plot, is defferent and never have read a book with this kind story, and is really refreshing. Also, like the characters, they are so different and they have their own personality, I really like this High Five Gang, because remind me the school when we have our friends and we do this eventures and all that. It was great to have this kind of reading. I also like the relationship between Micheal and Mira, it was cute to watched them, and also I aways was looking for to have more of their moment along, and for they to recall their life together.

I really don't like Maddison, the oldest doughter of Micheal and Mira, when you read the book you find out why but I think, she is really stupid. I like Jonathan, Micheal's little bother; I think he is hinding something I really want to know what is. In general, this book has a lots of secrets. And worth to find it, so read it because it's very entertainent and a wonderful read.

I give it 4 hearts
