Jayden and the Mysterious Mountain tells the unusual story of the rise of a young boy. Jayden starts out as a terrified, lonely teen who is forced to live on the streets because it’s a lot less painful than living with family. While society turns its back and hurries away at the sight of hunger and neglect, Avando reaches down to rescue as many homeless teens as he can. At first it seems impossible that a wealthy man would make it his mission to seek out and help such teens as these and the young boy suspects that something must be terribly wrong with this adult. But Avando seems to be driven by grief over the loss of his own loved ones. Once under his protective wing, the rescued children discover how each of their stories are simply a part of their true potential. As Jayden becomes involved in a series of adventures, he discovers the value of loyalty and learns that sometimes bad habits are hard to break.
