Mr. and Mrs. Gilby pulled Jon up to their truck and yelled at him for being on their property, but they would not let Jon talk and tell his part of the story. Jon squirmed away, ran like the wind, and jumped over a high fence; Mr. and Mrs. Gilby were amazed. He ran for awhile until he came to a cliff that went down to a road. When he started going down the cliff he slipped and the next thing he knew he was lying down in the middle of the road. A family named the Beans drove down the road and picked him up. They took him back to their house and fed him and took care of him until he was better. Eventually Jon remembered his name, but he didn’t know anything else.
Later the Gilbys came over to the Beans house and asked if they knew where Jon was, but the Beans hid him and the Gilbys never knew. Jon was kept in hiding until the Gilbys found a pair of boots that they thought they had seen before on Jon. Jon was caught and accused of many things like theft, trespassing, and vandalism. He really did none of those things except trespassing, which he did not know he was doing. Later on the whole town found out that Jon could read minds and use it to an advantage. Now everyone was after this boy including the army.
At the end of the book the magical door opens and Jon and the Beans go back to Jon’s land. I liked this book a lot more than I
