So when a mysterious wasp queen invades his dreams, offering to fix the baby, Steve thinks his prayers have been answered.

All he has to do is say Yes.

But yes is a powerful word. It is also a dangerous one. And once it is uttered, can it be taken back?

Celebrated author Kenneth Oppel creates an eerie masterpiece in this compelling story that explores disability and diversity, fears and dreams, and what ultimately makes a family.

Includes illustrations from celebrated artist Jon Klassen.
