I cannot read Max's story due to the size of the print on kindle paperwhite. It won't let you increase the size (as it's Max's handwritten notes and illustrations) and I can't read it even with my glasses and a magnifying glass. I have tried googling for the text but no joy. Can anyone help? please!!

I tried that on my laptop but the writing was still too small for me to read. My eyesight is not *that* bad either!

It worked for me but I use a large widescreen desktop. Kindle is bad for authors' maps too.

If it's a picture try pressing and holding on the image until you get a magnifying glass which should let you zoom in using two fingers and move around the zoomed image?

'ere you go. I can't help much with the pictures though:

"All my life
I've been scared
of men standing over me.

I suppose my first standover man was my father,
but he vanished before I could remember him.

For some reason when I was a boy I liked to fight. A lot of the time, I lost. Another boy, sometimes with blood falling from his nose, would be standing over me.

Many years later, I needed to hide. I tried not to sleep because I was afraid of who might be there when I woke up.
But I was lucky. It was always my friend.

When I was hiding, I dreamed of a certain man. The hardest was when I traveled (sic) to find him.

Out of sheer luck, and many footsteps, I made it.

I slept there for a long time. Three days, they told me ... and what did I find when I woke up ? Not a man, but someone else, standing over me.

As time passed by, the girl and I realized we had things in common
(written on the wall: TRAIN. DREAMS. FISTS)

But there is one strange thing.
The girl says I look like something else.

Now I live in a basement. Bad dreams still live in my sleep.
One night, after my usual nightmare, a shadow stood above me. She said "Tell me what you dream of."
So I did.

In return, she explained what her own dreams were made of.

Now I think we are friends, this girl and me. On her birthday, it was she who gave a gift - to me.
It makes me understand that the best standover man I've ever known is not a man at all ..."
