Gwen Marriott is your average college student: She writes books, stays inside, and daydreams about her own characters. She lives a quiet life with her best friend, Randall, and her cat, Shrapnel. Until she falls asleep at her keyboard one night. When she wakes in a muddy trench - the last scene she had written in her book - she believes herself to be dreaming. With her stuck in a fantasy world, and her main character running around in her college apartment, Gwen must survive to be able to return home - if her brother’s can find out how that is. It’s every author’s nightmare as Gwen must see firsthand the effects of her writing and plot, and come face to face with the people whose lives she may have destroyed.
