How do you come of age under a mind-controlling dictatorship?
“Keaney is sure to gain a big readership with this first title. . . . It will captivate readers with a taste for suspense and psychological thrills.”—School Library Journal
In Tanegar, a sinister island where the laws of the mysterious Dr. Sigmundus hold sway, dreaming will get you locked up and branded a lunatic. Dante is a lowly kitchen boy. Bea is the privileged daughter of physicians. They aren’t meant to meet or share ideas, or, most dangerous of all, their dreams. But with the arrival of a notorious prisoner to the island's asylum, their worlds collide. Together they begin to question whether the promises they’ve based their lives on have been spun from lies and illusion—and if now is the time to break them.
