A Last Taste of Summer: The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To

The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To: A Novel
--D.C. Pierson

Imagine that your best friend had been keeping a secret from you. But it is a secret so strange your entire view of the world would change if you believed him. But the only other options are that he's lying to your face or he's completely crazy. Darren Bennett is in exactly this predicament. If his best friend Nelson is telling the truth, then he's basically admitting to being a mutant, a human being who doesn't sleep and never has. And if Nelson's secret is true, than there are MANY people who will want to get a hold of Nelson to find out just what makes him so special.  In this quirky, surreal book, you'll go along with Darren as he finds himself on the run with Nelson hiding from a man who looks suspiciously like the hero of a comic book... 

If you never sleep, what happens to your dreams?
