Only one obstacle stands in his way of enjoying a normal life. He remembers—every life he’s lived before.

Tres is about to be born… with the biggest burden any has ever had to bear. He is beginning again—as an ageless adult trapped in an infant body.

He and his teenage mother face life filled with extraordinary challenges as they strive to protect, nurture, and hide how truly different he is. But Tres alone must solve the greatest mystery of all: who is he? The answer is linked to the one question he’s too afraid to ask: why am I?

In his quest, Tres discovers that all is considerably more interconnected and dynamic than he could ever imagine—and fraught with far more danger. He cannot hide from the unseen threat stalking him since his birth.

Life as he knows it—as all know it—is in peril. And Tres is the only one aware.

In The One Apart, Tres is about to be born again.He’s an adult trapped in an infant body, and remembers every life he’s lived before. Think kind of like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The premise is different but also somewhat similar as in the protagonist is unique and has an unique perspective on time and life itself.

In this new life, Tres – now named Aaron – has a very special bond with his mother, Sancha, who tries to protect him in every way she knows how. Their relationship is unique but relatable, and Tres’ mother went through several hardships herself that make her strong-willed and determined.

Slowly, Tres learns who he truly is and what he can do, and the most important question of all: why he exists. The story is sometimes sad, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hopeful, but ultimately, very unique.
