Chris Crossing- p. 1Hey. I'm Chris. I'm like 11 and my parents sent me on a train to some remote place called Eastleaf.
And I'm definitely not happy about it.
I stopped looking out the window and saw some cat staring at me.
Wait, a cat? He's about as tall as I am, and he's on his hind legs, and he talked.
They put me on a furry train. What is wrong with them. This has to be a joke.
