Koi Pierce dreams other peoples’ dreams. Her whole life she’s avoided people. Any skin-to-skin contact–a hug from her sister, the hand of a barista at Stumptown coffee–transfers flashes of that person’s most intense dreams. It’s enough to make anyone a hermit.
But Koi’s getting her act together. No matter what, this time she’s going to finish her degree and get a real life. Of course it won’t be that easy. Her father is increasing senile, she’s haunted by a dream fragment of a dead girl from the casual brush of a creepy professor’s hand, and a mysterious stranger who speaks the same rare Northern Japanese dialect as Koi’s father seems to be stalking her. Koi must learn to trust in the help of others in order to face the truth about herself.
