    One night in an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a first-year student stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep - and doesn’t wake up.

    The eagerly awaited new novel from the author of The Age of Miracles. Imagine a world where sleep could trap you, for days, for weeks, months...A world where you could, even, die of sleep rather than in your sleep.
