of Calloway’s parents, the torment he deals with at Fresno High
School for being poor, and the responsibility of the entire world on
his shoulders, he still believes life is worth living—even if it
The only things he has left are the gifts his father left behind, a
glowing orb and a picking knife. Calloway doesn’t understand the use
of these gifts. The globe only responds to him, shining in the

I hope that was helpful. =)
