Max Werner is bored with stealing. His perfect night vision just makes it far too easy these days. What he needs is one big heist before summer ends and he has to go back to school. Or, at least, that's what he thinks until his little sister Jenny begins to blackmail him. He can either bring her along to steal, or she will report his crimes to the police.
Jenny and Max get far more excitement than they hoped for, however, when a group of inhuman subterranean criminals kidnap Jenny to punish Max for invading their territory. Desperate and scared, Max must journey underground to save his sister with nothing but his ability to see in the dark and a few courageous friends to keep him alive.
A Selective History of Max Werner is a funny and exciting young adult adventure that sheds light onto the unique world of a fifteen-year-old who can see in the dark.
