About the Book

Two young boys coming from quite divergent backgrounds grow up in two dissimilar areas, geographically and economically. One grows up near a big city with a strong family structure and is indomitably influenced by his parochial education. The other boy grows up in a rural community and lives in an economically depressed environment. They live apart with no knowledge of the other but are bound by a gift – if one could call it that – a gift of Extra Sensory Perception – ESP. Jimmy, the lad who lives in Queens, New York, suffers dreams that give him a glimpse into the future, and it is not an enjoyable view. Indeed, these sojourns cause Jimmy a great deal of mental anguish. Benjamin lives in rural Pennsylvania and is abused by both his alcoholic father and his classmates. He is a loner and desperately isolated. He is relentlessly bullied both at home and at school and finally, through his dreams, envisages avenues for revenge. Ultimately, as they grow into young adulthood, their reveries begin to reveal the other and there is no doubt that they must meet and their eventual confrontation results in a shocking climax.
