Kursid Kids 

Written by an 8-year-old boy, Ronan, Pat LaMarche's grandson,  
...this book weaves an elaborate science fantasy through a fabric of injustice. You will fall in love with the characters - most of them. You will ponder the same question Ronan asked in the car that dark night as he thought about his housing-insecure classmates, "Who will make things right in a world where so much is wrong?"
