Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Well Written Book I love Awake and Dreaming so much... I read it five times in a row! It's also a very well written book; inspiring to go and write my own book! I've read all of Kit Pearson's books, but overall: Kit Pearson is a very good author.

Editorial Reviews

"This is not a 'quiet' book. It is noisy with the most important kinds of struggle, because you and I face them every day: the quest to find our place in the world, to belong to a family and group of friends, to be loved." - Kenneth Oppel

"Pearson's gift is to always write straight from the inner well of childhood feeling." - Toronto Star

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
