Half Asleep
Leah Oster tells us a story about where dreams come from, and where they go when we wake up. Two unlikely companions, Maria and Cordelia, both have complicated family histories, and troubles in their day-to-day lives. But it takes an incredible trip to the world of dreams for them to discover what they have in common, and forge a true friendship. 

About the Author
Leah is a grade six student at Southview Public School in Napanee, Ontario. She has always been an avid reader and writer, and often shares tidbits of ideas for stories with us that are floating around in her head...."Half Asleep" originated in a conversation that Leah and her nine year-old sister Maddy were having about weird dreams they had had, and just sort of developed as she began writing.  Leah enjoys lots of extra curricular activities in addition to reading and writing, including long distance running, swimming, horseback riding and highland dancing.  She also belongs to club that she and her friends started called "Fruit Punch" that does fundraising for a variety of charities.  They have been particularly big supporters of our local S.P.C.A. (Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Leah's future aspirations currently include being a teacher or a doctor, and she sees herself working in a developing nation and writing about her experiences there.
