John has suffered an abusive childhood.  He comes to live with a lady who wants to help him heal and be ready to go back and live with his mom.  The dream givers use their special talents to ward of the nightmares that threatened to destroy all of the healing he has done and damage him forever.This book was ok, not as much action as some of Lowry's others, and honestly I kinda wondered at the point sometimes.  It was a bit slow moving in the middle but not really long so I made it through.  Nothing offensive, but it does mention John being abused by being forced to eat dog food, and the nightmare carriers could scare a sensitive reader.
