Dreamrider by Barry Jonsberg

Michael has been to 8 schools in 4 years. At each one he faces bullying because of his size. The only bright side in his life is is step mother and a new friend at school. But the bullying just gets worse, especially when he is seen talking to him self. The author is definately trying to do a storyline twist by initially having the teen being able to lucid dream and then supposedly being able to dream into other's dreams. I don't think the author pulls off the end very well. It is esentially a book about mental illness from the point of view of someone who doesn't even know there is anything wrong. I'm nay.

This could have been quite good but, this story is not very consistent for me and I am also voting No
