Suzanne Young has been a very busy author this year! Besides writing her own novels, she also teamed up with musician and creator Tom DeLonge on the recently released young adult novel, Poet Anderson … Of Nightmares.
The book is part of a larger, multimedia project dreamed up by DeLonge (you probably know him from Blink 182 or more recently Angels & Airwaves) — and takes readers from the real world, to the dream world.
Here’s more about the first young adult novel in the franchise, Poet Anderson … Of Nightmares, which DeLonge co-authored with Suzanne Young:
Jonas Anderson and his older brother Alan are Lucid Dreamers. But after a car accident lands Alan in a coma, Jonas sets out into the Dream World in an attempt to find his brother and wake him up. What he discovers instead is an entire shared consciousness where fear comes to life as a snarling beast called a Night Terror, and a creature named REM is bent on destruction and misery, devouring the souls of the strongest dreamers. With the help of a Dream Walker—a guardian of the dreamscape, Jonas must face his fears, save his brother, and become who he was always meant to be: Poet Anderson.
