When Layla first comes out of her coma, she isn't quite sure that she's awake. She's not even sure if she's still sane- but crazy people don't wake up from dreaming with fresh manure on their feet when they live in the middle of a city.
Layla's different. When she sleeps, she goes somewhere else-- a dream world called Slumber Creek. She lives two lives, one by day and another by night. Now she wants to prove to the world that this secret parallel universe is real, that there are others like her who have awoken with the same strange power, and how the ability works.
When her friend Noah goes missing in the dreaming world, the race to understand how she moves between Slumber Creek and Denver could be the key to finding him. Layla sets out to find dreamers like her, but the task is not as simple as it seems. Someone who looks like Noah has appeared in her waking life. Her dorm mates think she's too attached to her research. Her mother keeps blowing up her phone, and her professors are not impressed with her work.
Layla knows that it's all real. She knows she isn't alone.
She just needs to find someone else who believes her.
