Now in paperback--an unforgettable story of hope, friendship, and compassion by the Printz Award-winning author, who weaves a richly layered tale of a boy's journey of self-discovery and the acceptance and compassion he learns along the way.
From the Publisher:

David Curry doesn't know what to make of his father, Reuben, whose violent out bursts and chilling nightmares torment his family. His older brother, Tyrone, says Reuben is crazy. But lately, even Tyrone isn't acting like himself.

Then David meets the mysterious Mr. Moses, who tells him that dreams might be the only things we have that are real. And it is Mr. Moses's gift of dreams that gives David a new way to see inside his father's troubled heart.

Annotation:
A 12-year-old boy named David tries to find a way to deal with his father's increasing mental instability in this novel set in Harlem. David's friendship with a mysterious man named Mr. Moses helps him cope with the complexities of his life and develop a greater understanding of what his father is enduring.
Author Bio
Walter Dean Myers
Walter Dean Myers's mother died when he was young, leaving his father to raise eight children alone. When he was three, Walter was taken in by a nearby couple, Herbert and Florence Dean, who moved with him to Harlem, New York. A speech impediment contributed to his unhappy time in school, although he did love to read and write. When he was 16 he won a prize in an essay contest, which encouraged him to continue his writing although he eventually dropped out of school and joined the Army. Afterward, he held a series of jobs before becoming a full-time writer. His first book for children, WHERE DOES THE DAY GO?, was published in 1969 after it won a competition sponsored by the Council on Interracial Books for Children. Myers has been awarded the Newbery Honor, the Coretta Scott King Award, and the Margaret A. Edwards Award for his contributions to young adult literature.
