Tom tries to bring a dead otter back to life.

Result: failure!

“Why is this dead otter so unresponsive?” he demands, waving it in the face of his homeroom teacher.

After that he does not even have a dead otter any more.

He is head boy of the House of Dreams at the Lethal Magnet School for Wayward Youth. He commands a miraculous hat. But he can’t just make happy endings by wishing them. He can’t make the world a happy and glorious place.

He enacts detention fitfully.

He seethes against the confines of his existence.

You can’t just make the world better through science —

“Or — can I?” asks the scientist, Tom.
