Fourteen-year-old Gregory has been experiencing dreams about a boy named Gregor in another world-strange dreams that are so real, he can't tell where his life ends and Gregor's begins! As he tries to come to grips with his father's suicide in this world, the boy Gregor is selected by his school as one of the "Golden Ten" to travel as ambassador to a faraway place called the Mother Country from which no other Golden Ten boy has ever returned! While Gregory struggles to separate dream from reality, Gregor is suddenly caught in an underground labyrinth so twisted, his own survival-and ultimately Gregory's-is at stake.

In this thrilling, multi-dimensional novel, John Herman draws together the worlds of two boys creating an adventure startlingly true and compelling.
