Boy medium Baylor Bosco enters the dream world with his ghostly twin Kristina to discover what has happened to a bunch of missing kids in this second spooky novel in a series that James Patterson called “a fun ride with chills galore.”

With assistance from a powerful amulet, Baylor Bosco, boy medium extraordinaire, finds himself with a dazzling new ability: he can walk through dreams. Not only his own, but those of other people! Using a starry, otherworldly portal called Loved Ones’ Lane, Baylor tumbles through the dreams of his friends, family—even his cranky aunt.

But with Baylor, nothing’s ever as easy as it seems! Soon Baylor is dream-walking through a terrifying reality: two teenagers, Archie and Helena, who are stranded at sea. The kids have been missing for over a week and Baylor is the only person who can reach them.

The only problem is, Baylor has no way of telling where Archie and Helena are outside of his dream world. And time is running out. Not to mention that a group of wandering demon spirits, the Lost Souls, are after Baylor, too. Can Baylor find the missing kids—and escape the clutches of the Lost Souls—before it’s too late?

About the author

Robert Imfeld grew up in Orlando, Florida, and like any self-respecting Floridian, evenly split his free time between the beach and Disney World. After graduating from the University of Florida, he put his journalism degree to good use by saving lives at a luxury resort (some call this “lifeguarding”) in Orlando, interning/brewing coffee at a production company in Los Angeles, and managing finances for country songwriters in Nashville. He now lives in New York City, where he works in marketing by day and writes books for kids by night.

Minerva Clark is a typical thirteen-year-old girl: she hates her hair, she hates her legs (which somehow manage to look both too fat and too skinny at the same time), and don't get her started on her gigantor bootie. On top of all this puberty, she's being raised by three older brothers, none of whom really get her. But when a fateful encounter with a lightning storm rewires her sense of self, Minerva Clark becomes anything but a typical teen. With a brazen new attitude and a nose for trouble, Minerva soon finds herself drawn inexplicably to the scene of a murder and determined to track down the killer. If only all the clues weren't pointing so close to someone she knows...

Reviews
"Karbo's (The Stuff of Life, for adults) first book for young readers. . . takes kids on an entertaining, curve-filled ride. . . .The narrator's relationships with her caring siblings and her recurring musings about missing her mother add poignancy to this cleverly tangled whodunit.

"A. . . cross between Nancy Drew and Adrian Monk, investigating a complex web of check fraud, theft and murder involving her previously-thought-perfect glamour-girl cousin, Jordan ('On the days I didn't want to be her, I hated her.')"-Kirkus Reviews

"Karbo's innovative, good-natured satire of adolescent girl behavior shines when portraying Minerva's quirky but affectionate home life, in which her t
