When His Dreams Take Flight by Andy Holloman is a story based on the actual events of the shooting at Sandy Hook, although none of the events in the story are real. Nick is a High School Principle battling with an alcohol problem. Following an incident at the school, he is suspended and falls off the wagon – not for the first time. While he is in an alcohol-induced coma, he dreams he is flying over a different school each time and, at each one, he sees a gunman getting ready to wreak havoc. With the help of his sponsor Gene, he manages to thwart 2 attempts, never revealing his identity. With the arrival of an ex-wife, a new girlfriend on the scene, and the release from prison of a town troublemaker, things get a little heated. His third vision happens after his sponsor dies in an apparently alcohol-related accident and leads him right to his own school where he is unable to prevent the tragedy unfolding before him.
Andy Holloman has given us the right mix of love, laughter, and horror in When His Dreams Take Flight. I found it an easy yet thrilling read; this is one of those books where you won’t guess the ending. Andy makes sure to give the reader enough background on each of the main characters so that the reader understands where and how they fit into the story. I thoroughly enjoyed When His Dreams Take Flight and would love to read more from the same author.
