479 pp, 9 1/4" H. "Novelist Christopher Knox knows all about books. Real life, however, has spiraled to the point where he barely knows his own son. Separated from his wife and battling writer's block, Chris still finds joy in one thing: reading 11-year-old David his nightly bedtime story. When Chris introduces David to a fantasy novel by a long-forgotten author, his reluctant reader is enthralled. The curious old book becomes the centre of the boy's life - until one night, when a mysterious seizure leaves him unconscious. As doctors puzzle over David's condition, Chris makes a critical discovery. Convinced that the novel is responsible for David's affliction, Chris races desperately from Victoria to New York to Washington State in search of the truth. Meanwhile, David wakes up within the fantasy world of the book. As his father struggles to save him in the real world, where the boy's condition is worsening, David fights for his life in a reality designed to capture the hearts - and souls - of children just like him. (A) heart-wrenching story about the courage of a family, of a boy who must grow up in the blink of an eye - and the magical power of the imagination." Very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear/wrinkling.
