Summary
"When wasps come to Steve in a dream offering to fix his sick baby brother, he thinks all he has to do is say yes. But yes may not mean what Steve thinks it means"--
Summary
An anxious boy named Steve becomes convinced that the 'angels' visiting him will save his sick baby brother. But these are creatures of a very different kind, and their plan for the baby has a twist. As the story unravels Steve discovers the truth about his new friends as the time remaining to save his brother ticks down.
