Author Monica Nawrocki brings the boogeyman to life in her speculative fiction novel, Inside the Dreaming (Library and Archives Canada $15.99). Jackson Kraft arrives at Nicki’s high school, revealing an unsettling familiarity with Nicki’s family. Kraft abducts Nicki’s sister into the dreamworld known as the Vale, forcing Nicki to navigate this alternate reality. To rescue her sister, Nicki must trust unexpected allies—a quirky friend, a loser dad, a ghost mom and a shape-shifting “witch” from the past. In this suspenseful tale, Nicki’s journey through the Vale requires more than bravery—it demands trust and a good dose of coffee. 9781738806201
