Overview

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." – Walt Disney

"Reality leaves a lot to the imagination." – John Lennon

Sam O'Riley is by all accounts a typical middle-schooler living in bustling Chicago. He has never met a ghost. He's never prowled around graveyards, been chased by killer clowns, or soared without wings. All Sam knows is that a long grueling school year cannot compare to summer break in Chicago. But all that is about to change when he closes his eyes one night . . . when he discovers what lies behind each of us when we dream . . . when he finds the Dream Catchers.

It all starts on the worst possible night – the first night of summer break when his whole life is changed by a young woman who is already dead. Deep inside a dream, Sam is thrust into the impossible, into a mystery that turns his idea of reality upside down. He is shown that life is much more than what we see, that when we dream the mind escapes the body and everything becomes connected; past and present, living and dead. But among the abundant wonders and unlikely friends he finds along the way, he also learns that good and evil are at war and that he is but a pawn.

Despite being told to keep secret what is happening to him at night, to hide what is a mystery even to him, Sam must rely on his friends Joe and Nancy to help keep him sane and safe from the terror that has followed him into the waking world. But as he plumbs Chicago's unusual history, ghost stories, demons and dangers for a solution, Sam learns a difficult truth and a great purpose begins to take root in his life . . . if he can survive long enough to fulfill it.

So be warned. This story is not about witches, wizards or wands. This story is not about everyone living happily ever after either. This story is about what’s already in the room with you and unseen. This story is about them.

Whether you enjoy ghost stories, mysteries, or Chicago history, discover what dead people already know . . . dream with your eyes wide shut!
