Whole New World[s]

In the summer holidays, when he can’t be with his best friend, Jake, Ethan goes walking to pass the time. He enjoys being alone on the beach near his house, where he can listen to his own thoughts and just be a kid again.
But when he finds a small, pebble-like device on the floor of the abandoned coastguard house, his whole world literally changes…
