The Phantom Limb

In The Phantom Limb, Isaac is your generic new kid: he gets picked on, doesn’t have any friends, and is falling behind in school. His mom is in the hospital with a seizure disorder. Isaac’s fascination with optical illusions leads him to find a cool illusion called a mirror box, which helps amputee patients get rid of phantom limb pain. Soon Isaac starts seeing another hand in the box that isn’t his. The hand is clearly trying to communicate with Isaac. What is it saying? 

Lucy, 12
