Narrator Andrew Eiden is youthful and engaging as Warner, a poor but plucky teenager living in an alternate United States. Physical size and access to resources, jobs, and education are determined by the munmun (money) in one's bank account. Along with his sister, Prayer, and best friend, Usher, Warner ventures forth in search of money-making "scale-up" opportunities. The only currency Warner carries is his special ability to create dreamscapes for others in "Dream World." Eiden's astute characterizations, especially of Warner, reveal humor and frustration during the miniscule teens' encounters with law enforcement, judiciary, gangs, and well-intentioned benefactors in "Life and Death World." Slang and colloquial expressions, ably performed, infuse this thought-provoking narrative on social and economic inequalities with authenticity.
