This is a great book. Interesting story line.
Harper Trophy - Ages 12 and up -
A dark family secret . . . Stephen is fifteen when the nightmares begin. The dream is always the same: a crying baby, a wooden ldder, a house built in the branches, fire everywhere. Night after night, the fantastic images haunt him. More chilling than the dream itself, though, is the fact that this is the very same nightmare that haunted Stephen's brother, Marcus - the dream that drove Marcus to run away. Now Stephen is the age his brother was when he left, and he wonders what it all means.
Determined not to run away from the truth, Stephen steels himself for a journey of remarkable discovry that he hopes will eventually lead him to the truth about the past and, ultimately, about himself.
Actually a pretty good book - angst of growing up as part of a dysfuntional (but still functional) family. Not a horror story but a good awakening story for a lost fifteen year old boy on his way to discovering that he's actually found - not lost.
It was a short, quick read. A little out there in regards to spiritualism. Being a Christian I found it not acceptable for our school library.
