From Our Editors

Little Theo doesn't have very much in the way of extras; in fact, she doesn't have much in the way of bare necessities. Her mother is too young, too selfish and too irresponsible to raise a small child, so Theo creates her own world where she escapes. This book world becomes so vivid that one day she wakes up with the Kaldor family, with parents who love her and look after her. When the dream fades, Theo goes looking for the real Kaldors and finds that they don't know her at all. It's the author's ghost that helps this little girl through her confusion in Kit Pearson's Awake and Dreaming. Through her insights into this other family, Theo slowly starts to recognize the values of her own family.

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
