Jason Crawford has dedicated his life to fighting the mysterious alien race which threatens the massive city-ship he calls home.

Just weeks away from graduation, however, Jason discovers a terrible secret which could mean an end to his way of life forever.

Fearing government reprisal for this newfound knowledge, Jason takes refuge in the Rim, a walled-off section of the ship where citizens are left to fend for themselves while the government ruthlessly plunders its resources.

Gilles DeCruyenaere’s debut novel “I Dreamt of Trees” is a story of struggle and survival in a dystopian society built on fear and greed, where no one is quite as good, nor quite as bad as they seem.
