Senior year. For most high school students, it’s something to celebrate. For Ella, it’s a reminder of what she’s lost. A car accident cut short the life of her brother Jack before made it that far. Now her fear of outgrowing her big brother is putting her at odds with everyone. And it’s stirring up some really terrible dreams.
No one seems to understand what Ella is going through, not her parents or her best friends. The only person on her side is PhiTau, and Ella doesn’t even know he exists.
As a tender in the realm of the Dream Lord, PhiTau’s job is to take care of Ella’s dreams. But when he rosses the line from caring to meddling, he causes Ella to do what she fears most–forget.
To repair the broken pieces of Ella’s memory, PhiTau will need help from two gods and the one person who knows Ella better than he does. But saving Ella’s memory may require PhiTau to make the ultimate sacrifice.
