Theo and her young, irresponsible mother seem trapped forever in their miserable, poverty-stricken life … but Theo can’t stop dreaming of belonging to a “real” family. When she is mysteriously adopted by the large, warm Kaldor family, her dream seems to be coming true. But as time passes, the magic of Theo’s new life begins to fade, and soon she finds herself back with her mother. Were the Kaldors real or just a dream? Who is the shadowy figure who haunts Theo’s thoughts? And, most importantly, will Theo ever be able to find a real home with a family she can truly call her own?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awake and Dreaming My sixth grade teacher read this in class many years ago and I would look forward to hearing more of the story each week... It was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all-time favourites This is one of my all-time favourite books. I read it as a child and was so drawn into the story, I could not put it down. After many years I considered reading it again but worried that as an adult I wouldn't appreciate it as much as I had years before; I didn't want to ruin the memory of a good thing. I read it again and loved it just as much. #plumrewards

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
