Uko Hill is a twelve year old black boy in Newark suffering from the same nightmare every night - an army of terrifying skeletons breaking into his home and destroying everything. He's given up hope of ever having normal sleep until one night, in the middle of his nightmare, he meets Toni. She's part of a group called the Nightmare Detectives - a trained squad of middle schoolers that can jump into the nightmares of other kids and help them stop for good. Uko is given the opportunity to join the Detectives and accepts. Along the way he learns that there's a lot more to living in this dreamworld than he expected. Can he stand up to the evil that he discovers? Can he overcome his fear and doubt to join the legendary Detectives?
