The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker

Title:  The Dreamers

Author: Karen Thompson Walker


Students sharing the same floor of a dorm in a small college town mysteriously begin falling asleep.  Their friends are unable to wake them.  When specialists are called to the small hospital to assess the unfamiliar sickness it is discovered that the victims have unusually high brain activity and the sickness is contagious and quickly spreading.  The town is quarantined and those inside do their best to help the sleeping while hoping to avoid becoming victims themselves.  I loved how the author switched between various viewpoints to piece together this story! Well worth the read.
