Rodney gets in trouble for “fading” in class & his parents take him to the doctor. He discovers that he is a “switcher” when he follows a dog to its owner. A switcher is someone who can travel between worlds. This is a book about genetic engineering gone wrong – where plants are like animals and it is all about finding a balance between changing things for the better and leaving them as they are.[Where everyone stares at Rodney because he is different and not a clone.]
