A crisis has swept America. Millions have lost the ability to sleep. Enter the Slumber Corps, an organization that urges healthy dreamers to donate sleep to an insomniac. Trish Edgewater, whose sister was one of the first victims of the lethal insomnia, has spent the past seven years recruiting for the Corps. Her faith in the organization and in her own motives begins to falter when she is confronted by “Baby A,” the first universal sleep donor, and the mysterious “Donor Y.”
Sleep Donation explores a world suffering an insomnia epidemic, where even the act of making a gift is not as simple as it appears.
