Mouch and Company: The Dream PsychicTitle: Mouch  and Company: The Dream Psychic
Author:Bob Dixon
Date Published:  July 7th 2011

Description:  Being a teenager is tough enough, but try it when you have schizophrenia and psychic abilities that make all of your imaginary friends real...
The odds are against Mouch-he's locked up in Talsom Mental Asylum; his only friends are a sock puppet and his shadow. Worst of all, he suffers from amnesia; his earliest memory is of being found alone in a mall wearing nothing but a pair of polka-dotted boxer shorts, a pair of fluffy white bunny slippers, and a hat made from a newspaper.... and covered in a generous amount of blood. When an elderly gentleman visits him and reveals that Mouch is not crazy but is actually a psychic, Mouch does what any rational person would do-he runs for the door. Once outside of Talsom, Mouch soon finds himself thrust into a battle against a sinister movement of dark psychics who threaten to destroy the entire psychic community.

Review: This is not the kind of book i would normally go for but I got asked to review it and I got a nice surprise. This book is about Mouch and his friends that live in his head. Mouch thinks these friends are real because he has slight  schizophrenia . Poor Mouch is in an asylum because of this and his only friends are a sock puppet and his shadow.  Mouch gets a visitor in the asylum who says he is not crazy but  phsychic and he is set free, but finds him self in the middle of a battle between god and bad psychics. We spend a lot of time in Mouchs dreams that seem more like reality.
Over the coarse of the book we get to learn more about the other characters in the book both of which are very likable and entertaining. I all so think Mouch was an amazing lovable character which I think most of you will love.

Over all view:  I was pleasantly surprised with this book, I started out thinking I wasn't going to like it but I'm happy to say I really did. It was filled with action, and amazing friendship that you don't see very often. I think most people from the age of 11 will probably enjoy giving this book a try.
