Frankie Uccello seems like just another fourteen-year-old boy -- Ace of Average, King of Common, Master of Middle. Everything he does has a tendency to turn out average. Even when Frankie dreams recurrently of flying, his father tells him that at least one in three people does this. He's perfectly normal, normal, normal. Or is he? When Frankie discovers something ominous about his dreams -- that he can dream the future, especially when something bad is about to happen -- he realizes that he might be talented, after all. But seeing the future was only cool in movies and TV. In real life, you're just a whacko. Besides, the future doesn't look good. One night Frankie dreams his best friend, Tim, falls from a horse. Is Tim going to be killed? Can Frankie save him? Something about the dream doesn't fit, and that something is Weird Maura-Lee, one of three people Frankie avoids like the plague. Maura-Lee can read minds, and she seems to be reading his.
