Diagnosed with a rare form of meningitis, a teenage boy is paralyzed from head to toe—trapped in his own mind. To cope with his imprisonment, he retreats to an imaginary world called his Mind Palace, but the lines between reality and time start to blur when he receives a new roommate—an old, outspoken, Jewish, jazz musician with dementia.
A page-turning novel in the tradition of Mitch Albom's Tuesday's with Morrie, mixed with the humor and twists of Back to the Future, 4 Years Trapped in My Mind Palace is filled with witty humor and heart-warming, feel-good, experiences. It's a coming-of-age story, entwined with an end-of-age story, that will capture your imagination with a hint of nostalgia, a hint of the whimsical unknown, and a wild adventure through modern history.
