    The alligator, then, unlike the diamond, is not merely physical. For now, at least I have these two sweet little SilkWings to infect. Once they were inside, Blue and Sundew acted as Cricket's servants until Sundew got close enough to the guards to paralyze them. She explained that she had found its seed on one of her school gathering trips and that she hadn't known what it was until it started growing. Cahalan was fortunate to be correctly diagnosed because, according to Najjar's estimates, only 10 percent of people with the disease were properly diagnosed at that time. He thought I was merely one of the voices in his head, his beautifully carved seed whispering back at him.

    As nightmarish as this scenario sounds, it's actually based on a true story and subsequent novel by the real-life Susannah. He then goes on to have the reader picture an alligator. Luna and Swordtail are discovered by some HiveWing soldiers, and a fight starts. The remainder of his life sees the birth, and death, of children, the development and success of his career as a writer, editor, and public speaker, and many trying and exhilarating times.

    After graduating from Harvard, Emerson joined the family teaching tradition. It's all in their heads.

And then, one night, she suffered a full-blown seizure and blacked out.

The Othermind

This story of some of the deepest sadness in Emerson's life then jumps eleven years earlier when he was a senior at Harvard. She was soon on a path to recovery that involved several immune therapies, steroids and months of adjustment. Willow was the one to initially name the othermind, as before there was no term for it.

The Librarian tried to help them escape, but Wasp had invaded her mind again, causing her to turn against her new companions. All this, too, was extraordinary, unusual luck. On the shell of the egg was an odorous green substance that Sundew said belonged to a plant in the greenhouse where she and Cricket first met - Queen Wasp's private greenhouse.
