The story follows a boy who discovers he can jump into other people’s dreams. But that power turns into a nightmare, literally, when his friends begin falling into an endless sleep, and an inhabitant of the dream world wants the boy’s abilities for itself.
Grunberg co-wrote the book with Lucas Turnbloom, who also illustrated. Scholastic is publishing the first book June 28, 2016.
