National Book Award winner Neal Shusterman and acclaimed illustrator Andrés Vera Martínez present a graphic novel exploring the Holocaust through surreal visions and a textured canvas of heroism and hope.

Courage to Dream plunges readers into the Holocaust — one of the greatest atrocities in human history — delving into the core of what it means to face the extinction of everything and everyone you hold dear.

This gripping, multifaceted tapestry is woven from Jewish folklore and cultural history. Five interlocking narratives explore one common story – the tradition of resistance and uplift. Neal Shusterman and Andrés Vera Martínezare intentionally renowned creators who have collaborated on a masterwork that encourages the compassionate, bold reaching for a dream.
