In a fantastical post-industrial desert, fifteen-year-old Boetema suddenly develops the ability to astral project to other planets while she sleeps. When she accidentally gets a young man hurt on a planet light-years away, she must figure out a way to project back to save him. On her own world, Boetema's two parents have temporarily left her and her thirteen-year-old brother, Inotu, to make a living as salt shepherds. Left to their own devices, the two siblings must flee across a dangerous desert when Inotu gets into trouble with a threatening cyborg bodyguard. As Boetema visits amazing planets and encounters vibrant cultures, she must confront her mistakes and learn to trust in Inotu as she navigates her newfound abilities.

Beautiful art, wildly creative worlds, and core themes of family are what make this a stunning story to read. This graphic novel revolves around a young girl, Boetema, who visits fantastic worlds when she sleeps. As she and her family find their way in the real world - a fictional desert country with its share of struggles - she also finds her way through a universe of imaginative cultures, places, and relationships within her dreams.

The only downside to this book is that it's not a series! I would have happily read dozens of more books about Boetema and her adventures, and this book definitely leaves you wanting more.

A very interesting concept of a story! I liked the relationship between the siblings but I couldn't believe the parents.

Gorgeous art but the story wasn't very compelling.

Beautiful artwork and a compelling fantasy story makes this one a quick read. It leaves you with lots of unanswered questions so I am sure a sequel is to follow.
