Nova's job is to harvest dream threads from unaware humans to sustain her sunless planet against a malicious parasite. But on one particular night, she enters the dream of a boy who knows her-who has been dreaming of her for a long time. And in that moment, everything changes.
Arlo's dream-girl always told him about a wonderous world beyond his imaginings, but he never thought that world could be a real escape from the traumatic realities he daily faces. Until the night that Nova becomes more than just a dream. Now Arlo must decide if escaping his trauma is worth the cost of following his dream-girl into a new reality.
As Nova and Arlo draw ever closer together, so too does the darkness in both their worlds grow stronger. In the end, it just might turn out that the only way to defeat the nightmares plaguing both their lives is for them to face the possibility of eternal separation.
This clean YA science-fantasy is coming March 2024 with Owl's Nest Publishers.
