The secret to its success: every moment of the students' lives is televised as part of the insanely popular Forge Show, and the students' schedule includes twelve hours of induced sleep meant to enhance creativity. But when first year student Rosie Sinclair skips her sleeping pill, she discovers there is something off about Forge. In fact, she suspects that there are sinister things going on deep below the reaches of the cameras in the school. What's worse is, she starts to notice that the ridges of her consciousness do not feel quite right. And soon, she unearths the ghastly secret that the Forge School is hiding―and what it truly means to dream there. Read the whole series:The Vault of DreamersThe Rule of MirrorsThe Keep of AgesPraise for The Vault of Dreamers:“A sharp novel about the ways in which everyone can be manipulated, either through editing or one's own desire to go the easiest path.” -The Bulletin“Like O'Briens Birthmarked trilogy, this dystopian, sci-fi, psychological-thriller hybrid raises ethical and moral questions about science. This might have been a difficult story to pull off, given the environment, but with a likable narrator who is thoroughly unimpressed with herself, it works . . . this should have wide appeal.” -Booklist“Fans looking for a science fiction novel that is not heavy on the science fiction or who want something vaguely dystopian will enjoy this title.” -VOYA“A mixture of science fiction and contemporary fiction, this novel is an interesting addition to both genres.” -School Library Journal“A fast, satisfying psychological thriller.” -Kirkus Reviews“Like viewers of The Forge Show, readers will want to keep watching Rosie.” -Publishers WeeklyMore from Caragh M.

There are several unconfirmed signs of pirates. 3. A wild bear known to be a very sore loser at musical statues has escaped from the museum and is on the rampage.
