Jake is a sixteen-year old boy from Oregon, and he has a problem. At times, he'll wake suddenly in the middle of the night—alert, tense, all senses straining—for no apparent reason. Then he begins sleepwalking. He's conscious of what he's doing, yet he can't stop, and he can't wake up. Jake wonders if it's merely an adolescent phase. But then again, a war isn't waged over mere sleepwalkers.
