Into the Great Marinara
Tanner loves baseball, but he's not a big fan of being bossed around by those in charge: his parents, his baseball coach, God-who, if he exists, surely doesn't have time to spend on a small-town middle-schooler. But Tanner finds his world rocked when he is sucked into a bowl of leftover spaghetti and shot into a land of talking pasta who carry swords and spears-all of whom believe in a mysterious higher power they call "Chef." Their world is under attack by a giant spaghetti dragon, and they seem to think Tanner is the one sent to save them. Tanner is faced with hard decisions. Is this "Chef" actually God, and does He really exist? If so, is Tanner going to act according to his own devices to find a way home, or put his faith in the master recipe-maker and follow his cooked-up plan.
