This is my favorite book series but you can't get the audio books for the 2nd and 3rd books of the series on here, but people are selling abridge copies for $60+ on amazon and much higher on other sites. I've sent a complaint in about it and waiting for years but they're still not available for U.S. and so I can't share my love of this series with my dyslexic friends or family members. So if you, like me, think paying $120+ for 2 audio books is rediculous get ready for an incomplete collection and thus an incomplete story.

Thirteen-year-old Mark Harrison has a week to hike across the desert. He will meet his parents on the other side. By his fourth day, he’s made good time. As he settles in for the night, he gazes up at the stars, feeling completely content. Suddenly, a blue light streams from the sky, jolting Mark into another dimension. Now, in a land filled with strange jungle animals and primitive tribes, Mark desperately battles hunger, armed enemies, and superhuman powers.

I always struggled with reading in elementary and this book was the first book that was so compelling that I read it cover to cover. Though because of how long ago that was I read the incomplete version, the one with the cliff hanger. my only real problems with the audio book is that the readers voice doesn't match the tone of the book for me. He's obviously trying, for the most part but it also seem like an old recording so it ends up having dated pitfalls, like the audio quality and direction sound much like that of a cassette playing. but all over that aside I still love this story.
