I was paralyzed—trapped in my own mind. Solomon was my only way out.

“Every teen should read this.” —

“Splendid” —San Francisco Review of Books

“A winning tale . . . captivating” —Kirkus Reviews

Fourteen-year-old Aaron Greenburg is trapped in a vegetative state. He’s awake and aware of everything around him—but the doctors don’t realize it. After years of being left in a care facility and facing dwindling interest from his own family, Aaron begins to despair—until, that is, a new roommate arrives: Solomon, a crusty, eccentric jazz musician with dementia. When Aaron talks in his mind to stay sane, Solomon unexpectedly hears his thoughts—and replies. 

In the surprise friendship that ensues, Solomon relives his past during episodes of dementia, and his mysterious connection with Aaron thrusts the boy into 1920s New York City, scuffles with a mob in a Chicago nightclub, foxholes in World War II, and more exciting adventures that will change Aaron’s life forever.

Four Years Trapped in My Mind Palace is a humorous and heartwarming coming-of-age story, entwined with an end-of-age story, that will renew your faith in the power of friendship and the beauty of life.
