Troy Cle set this fantasy in his hometown of East Orange, New Jersey. It melds hip-hop, video gaming, street lingo, and SAT vocabulary into a complicated frenetic story of good and evil. Malcolm Jamal Warner moves smoothly between the voices of the streetwise preteen Louis Proof and his inner-city friends and Galonious Imperial Evil (a force of evil determined to infiltrate the world of humans) and his minions. Unfortunately, Warner's skills do not rescue this confusing, complicated tale. After discovering a portal to another dimension at a local junkyard, Louis falls into a coma. When he awakens three months later, his world has changed, and it is his destiny to set things right. The dialogue sounds unrealistic and in need of some serious editing.
