A Thief in the House of Memory by Tim Wynne-Jones

Family secrets, forgotten memories, and the transforming power of truth Its been six years since sixteen-year-old Decs free-spirited mother, Lindy, disappeared. Dec feels so trapped in the present, hes avoided examining his past. But when an intruder dies in the museum-like family home, the mans death sends forth tremors that reawaken forgotten memories. Suddenly Dec is flooded with visions of his mother so tangible its hard to believe theyre not real. At least Dec has his best friend - gifted, funny Ezra - to help him sort out whats real and what isnt. But as Decs dream visions of his mother turn into nightmares, Ezra announces hes going away, leaving Dec haunted by questions that must be answered. What did happen to his mother? And who really is the thief in the house of memory? In this masterful new novel, Tim Wynne-Jones explores with wit, compassion, and humor the fictional territory he knows best - the prickly ties that bind families, the murky connections between imagination and real life.
