Marcus and the Wind

Marcus and the wind.

by Kylie Parry

Junior Journal 47 cover.

Marcus is a “middle boy”. He doesn’t stand out in any way and tends to be overlooked. Then, one Wednesday, everything changes. A strange wind springs up, and Marcus suddenly finds himself doing extraordinary things. The story is open-ended but with an implication that Marcus’s days of being a “middle boy” are over.
