"A coming-of age fantasy tale about two siblings. Boetema can astrally project, and her brother, Inotu, is forced to grow up when their reckless parents leave to work as salt shepherds. Boetema is tasked with figuring out why she dreams she's in other people's bodies, and in doing so, makes matters worse on a planet hundreds of light years away. Inotu struggles to become a confident and supportive brother while they've been left alone by their parents. Poor, sleep-deprived, and on the run from a cyborg, the siblings work together to overcome their own personal obstacles, making their way across the desert to the thriving metropolis, Yopan."--Provided by publisher.

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.
