"A riveting tale that will instantly transfix readers, like a dream you?re not quite ready to wake up from." --Bustle
When Sylvie Patterson, a bookish student at a Northern California boarding school, falls in love with a spirited, elusive classmate named Gabe, they embark on an experiment that changes their lives. Their headmaster, Dr. Adrian Keller, is a charismatic medical researcher who has staked his career on the therapeutic potential of lucid dreaming: by teaching his patients to become conscious during sleep, he believes he can relieve stress and trauma. Over the next six years, Sylvie and Gabe become consumed by Keller�s work, following him across the country.
But when an opportunity brings the trio to the Midwest, Sylvie and Gabe stumble into a tangled relationship with their mysterious neighbors�and Sylvie begins to doubt the ethics of Keller�s research. As she navigates the hazy, permeable boundaries between what is real and what isn�t, who can be trusted and who cannot, Sylvie also faces surprising developments in herself�an unexpected infatuation, growing paranoia, and a new sense of rebellion.
With stirring, elegant prose, �Chloe Benjamin has crafted an eerie, compelling first novel which, like the lingering effects of a vivid dream, resonates long past its finish� (Karen Brown, The Longings of Wayward Girls).
