31. The Hollow People by Brian Keaney The Promises of Dr. Sigmundus Book One

            This YA-level book delves into societal issues of freedom and class structure.  Dante lives on an island as a lowly kitchen boy born to an inmate.  He is the lowest of the low.  Then he accidentally meets Bea.  Bea does not seem to fit in, she asks too many questions that can risk her social standing.  The only place she feels she has friends is in her dreams of the ruined city.  But dreaming is dangerous because it is forbidden.  Dante still dreams which shouldn’t happen after his fourteenth birthday.  Then the new prisoner comes and upsets everyone.  He uses Odylic Force to confuse his enemies and takes Dante and Bea away with him.
