This first book in a new fantasy series by N.D. Wilson revolves around Sam Miracle, whose life is made up of dreams that come to him when he is wide awake. In these dreams, he is transported to another place and time where he can be a courageous hero instead of a foster kid with two bad arms. Things are about to change, though, when he and his friend meet the mysterious Father Tiempo, who helps him become a “time walker” and discover the truth about his past. Recommended for grades
