Carrie Schmidt is a missing girl. It's the summer of 1967, and the newspapers are full of stories about "missing girls"--teenagers who run away, looking for freedom and thrills in New York City. Carrie Schmidt feels like she's missing, too--missing from her own life. Ever since her mother died four years ago, it's as if she's been sleepwalking. Then Carrie meets Mona Brockner, who knows the secret of "lucid dreaming," being awake inside your dreams. Their friendship is Carrie's chance to find her mother, wake up--and step into her future. * "Intense and complex, as satisfying as finding a misplaced treasure." --SLJ, starred review An Association of Jewish Libraries Notable Book
