A new sci-fi action-adventure from "the Queen of Canadian speculative fiction"
Eleven years after a world war destroyed the consumer-driven, plastic-based existence of 2055, a new order of players jostles for power. Streaky electricity, ravaging drought, a scarcity of food, and deadly Monarch butterflies make for an increasingly desperate situation.
Worlds collide when both Mother and Sharps’s children are kidnapped by the unstable plastic surgeon Alpha Plus and taken to The Fountain of Youth compound. There’s flowing water and beautiful people and beautiful clothes and an incongruous convent where children wear smart uniforms and are tutored by nuns. Lovely, until they discover that a subterranean sex trade funds the compound and the man who leads it is mad. Can Mother, Sharps, and the others take down Alpha Plus and his army? Or will they too become pawns in his bid for world domination?
Hilarious and at the same time poignant, EVERYTHING YOU DREAM IS REAL is a fabulous, adventure-filled sequel to highly acclaimed The Rage Room that will delight fans both new and old.
"Witty and elegant, dorky and weird: EVERYTHING YOU DREAM IS REAL is a fantastically riveting book, loaded with strange delights, scary caprices and an infinity of comic turns and twists." —Lynn Crosbie, author of Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
"Lisa de Nikolits's EVERYTHING YOU DREAM IS REAL is aptly named: this novel reads like a delirious hallucination, but one with unmistakable immediacy. Come for the sci-fi and action-adventure; stay for the love story that lurks just below the surface." —Mark Sampson, author of All the Animals on Earth
"This is one rollicking ride! In her stunning follow up to The Rage Room, Lisa de Nikolits punches the gas right from the starting line and never stops, taking us through a mindbending series of twists and turns that will leave you breathless." —Rich Ehisen, The Open Mic
