Fluorescent Dreams is a story about Jenny who has daydreams for her mental illness. The story is twofold, similar to The Wizard of Oz. The fantasies unfold throughout the novel, separate from a pleasant story of a wife and mother that runs parallel to the fantasies.
Jenny Sagal moves her family from Chicago to a quaint town in Kentucky, planning to raise her two boys in an old-fashioned way. Jenny discovers, through daydreaming, that an entity called Ludicrous Lucifer and his Island Voodoo Gang are set to capture Jenny.
Part I is set in Krack Krackle, the magical town south of Chicago. Part II changes the setting to a green-door asylum called The Winnipeg Health Hotel. Part III takes place inside the Trans-Home, because Jenny will have to reside there for one year after her release from the asylum owned by Ludicrous Lucifer and his Island Voodoo Gang. Part IV describes a playful, fun day ahead for Jenny. She meets a savant man named Monty, falling in love with him. Jenny’s final fluorescent dream in Part IV is a bold, sparkling, beautiful dream, leaving the reader to decide if it did come true.
