Imagine you enter the world of dreams, only to realise you may never get back.

Alexander Bottom has heard every stupid butt joke and then some. The remarks have only made him stronger. Malik Ashkar is one of Alex's prime tormentors and leaves classmate, Leanne Chambers, simmering over an insensitive racist comment, a comment that will come back to haunt Malik. The unlikely trio finds themselves thrown together in the adventure of a lifetime, when Nim, the daughter of a Dreamweaver, appears to them from the Dreamscape.

Nim proves the existence of multiple dimensions, and a portal through the Dreamscape. The three teenagers' crossover to the medieval world of Trinity, where they must find a way to defeat the evil Lord Drabek and return the planet to peace. Separated on arrival, they are faced with racism on a scale unimaginable. Malik finds the shoe is on the other foot, while Leanne discovers her inner strength, and that there is more to Malik than she ever thought possible. Faced with the same fate that befell his mother, Alexander must find a way to rescue them all from disaster. But one final twist threatens to stop them ever returning home.

Throughout the story, their quest becomes epic in scope and our three young travellers are frequently tested. Each must develop, mature and work together in order to triumph.

Densely plotted, the story has many surprising twists and turns that will keep the reader's interest until the very last page. While this is an action-packed adventure, the characters have true depth and we get to see their backstories unfold, watching them grow and mature along the way. There is also a strong moral message within the anti-racist elements of the story, making this a truly rewarding experience for the reader. Though this novel is primarily a Young Adult work, it has been classified by some adult readers as a General Adult Fiction adventure. As well as a fantasy adventure, there are sci-fi elements to the story and even a touch of budding romance thrown in for good measure. Above all, there are strong female and male characters to draw and maintain reader's interest from any gender.
