Hollow People

My family have enjoyed this book by Brian Keaney immensely - it tells of an asylum on the island of Tarnagar where you can be locked up for dreaming. Thanks to the influence of Dr Sigmundus, after  a coming of age ceremony at the age of 13 everyone takes a substance called Ichor which is supposed to stop them dreaming and induces a robotic like existence- except it doesn't work on everyone...sounds strangely familiar...
