The Dream Seer
When twelve-year-old Anthony sets out to rescue his best friend, who has been kidnapped, he must choose between his natural inclination to fight the kidnapper, or the quiet voice within, telling him the man would surrender if only someone could understand and save his dying dream.
Trained in hand-to-hand combat by his Navy SEAL father, Anthony has inherited not only his father’s athletic prowess, but also his mother’s mystical gift. Anthony can see a ghost-like personification of other people’s dreams/aspirations standing beside them. Dream Seeing imparts to Anthony great empathy. When Anthony decides to rescue his friend by following his mystical calling and saving the kidnapper’s dying dream, he finds himself fighting for his life.
The Dream Seer is a mash-up of The Giver, The Bridge to Terabithia and Where the Red Fern Grows. The protagonist, Anthony, can see more of this world than those around him; he understands the incredible importance of dreams and imagination; and the bonds he forms with his friends are so steadfast, each is willing to die for the others.
