What if you woke up inside your own dream—and couldn’t get out?
Eleven-year-old Julie Fray is living a nightmare. Her parents are fighting so much she can’t escape—even when she goes to sleep. Every night she has horrible dreams.
Then one night Julie wakes up inside her nightmare, in the studio where her dreams are produced. She learns that if she can find the people responsible for her dreams, she might be able to make them stop. But it won’t be easy: the tiny tear in the fabric of her consciousness that let her fall into the dream studio in the first place is closing fast...and Julie could be trapped inside her own head forever!

Praise for Dreamquest:
“Hartinger deftly moves into the realm of fantasy….[His] winning pairing of a sincere message with hyperbolic humor should resonate with readers.”—Publishers Weekly
“Entertaining and humorous.”—Kirkus Reviews
Brent Hartinger is the author of many books for teenagers, including Geography Club, The Last Chance Texaco, and Grand & Humble. He lives near Seattle but once lived and worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood, which may have had something to do with this book, his first for younger readers.
