Brann is growing up in the middle of parental conflict. Fights, of the verbal variety, seem to be the order of the day, to escape which Brann withdraws further into his own world. Quite a predictable tale, you may say. Agreed, until the twist, in chapter two, when Kevin appears. Well, is Kevin a dream? I think this is all a dream, but it feels too real to be a dream. If it isn't a dream, that means I've travelled through time.' It's only when Brann wakes up and finds Kevin is still there, that he realises that it's more than a dream. Time present becomes time past becomes time present, as Brann travels through time into his own family's history, gaining the understanding that helps him come to terms with his home situation. Quite a demanding read, but one that is guaranteed to jangle some emotional bells in may readers.
