For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can’t tell anybody about what she does they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant…
I bought this book because the theme sounded really interesting, I mean can you imagine going into everyone else's dreams? I thought the idea of being able to do something like that would be exciting, then after reading the book I realized maybe it really isn't that great, it is bad enough having my own nightmares, no way I would want other's as well.
Okay yes I liked it BUT in a way I expected a lot more from this story. It's really hard to explain when i don't even know exactly what it is that I expected. It doesn't mean I was disappointed though! Maybe I just have to keep reading the rest of them and can make up for what I didn't mention in this really short "review".
I read this book not that long ago and the truth is that I can't remember that much about it besides the important events. I will post something else about it if anything else comes up in my head. For this I apologize!
P.S. read this book before I even started blogging, point being, I am trying to blog as I finish reading my books so I won't forget anything important that i should mention! :D
