The dream chooses the dreamer.

What happened in Weep to cut it off from the world? What did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do many more mysteries - including the blue-skinned goddess who visits Lazlo's dreams . . . A recipient of the Michael L. Printz Honor award for excellency in YA literature
