The book follows Caden Bosch, who lives in two different worlds – one is a semi-normal life with his family and friends, although he believes people are trying to kill him. In his other world, he is part of a pirate crew on a voyage to place known as the Challenger Deep, the ocean’s deepest trench. Along the way Caden endures a captain and his mutinous parrot, not to mention the mutterings of his fellow shipmates. Per the report, the author based the book on his own son’s schizoaffective disorder.
