Synopsis of The Girl Who Dreams in Green
At seventeen, Leigh Carpenter has all of the usual problems: calculus homework, concerns about college, a seldom-seen father, and an overworked mom. But when she can't get out of bed one morning, she knows that something more is wrong.
Leigh's days become increasingly more gray, but her dreams have come to life. When she falls asleep, Leigh finds herself in a bright green land where animals talk, trees bend to her will, and a monster lurks. As her mental health worsens, her powers in Green grow—and so does the time she spends there.
Waking life is now a maze of doctor's appointments and missing hours. In Green, Leigh explores new powers and meets allies Bird and Fox, who help her battle the Darkness. But when new symptoms develop and Leigh finds herself unable to sleep, Green starts to invade her waking world as well.
What's real? What's not? And how will Leigh find peace?
