Not all dreams are sweet.

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 immediately read this book after the first. It was somewhat darker than I had anticipated, which was both good and bad. Good, in that I feel it lends the story more realism. Bad, since I like to read books that leave me feeling upbeat after reading them. The character development for the lead character was very nicely done. I wish the author had worked a little harder on developing the boyfriend though. Unfortunately with this book, I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen before it happened. Suspense level was very low for me, though I still read the book in less than a day to find out what happened. Almost as good at the first.Still looking forward to the third installment.

Luckily for me, this book was in the library and I can honestly say that when I started reading, I had no idea what to expect. At the time, I had heard a lot of positive things about this book and one of my friends said it was a must have. Well, this book had all the makings of something amazing: an original plot, oddly interesting characters, and a unique concept. I honestly enjoyed reading this book, but I have to say that it wasn't the greatest book of all time.The title of the book was perfect, simple but catchy, mysterious yet dramatic, a little color with a huge impact. The cover itself is a masterpiece so already, you have the reader's attention. Everything about it was fitting. The characters - although I loved the original names - seemed to have recycled personalities at times, which really does not strike me as a good quality in a book. Even though Janie has a distinct personality, is very likable, and even has a supernatural ability like no other, there are qualities about her that make her feel plain and flat. I get that she's a teenager and all, but I would have loved to see something special that made her stand out against all the other YA teens.Then there's the plot. Again, it was so original and you can tell that a lot of thought had been put into the process but unfortunately, the spark I needed was not there. I can understand that this was a very complicated idea to write and I am so impressed with Lisa McMann's talent but it all seemed very...basic.Overall, this was a great story, but not amazing. The execution needed some improvement but the idea is fantastic. I have to say though, I'm very excited to get my hands on the sequel and hope I really enjoy it.Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I find the concept of this book interesting - teenaged protagonist Janie Hannagan becomes a spectator in other people's dreams if that person falls asleep within close proximity to her. It's a cool idea, it makes her privy to information people probably wouldn't always want her to know, and it's a tough situation to deal with.I find the concept of this book interesting, but was not very happy with the episodic feel of the writing. The plot felt very hurried, and I didn't become emotionally invested in the characters. I didn't even feel that I knew Janie very well, let alone anyone else.I also didn't particularly care for the characterization of teenagers in this book. Protagonist Janie and her love interest came across as slightly preachy and annoying.My favorite thing about this book was its' persistent mention of the University of Michigan, but anyone unfamiliar with that school and the city in which it is placed would have trouble understanding why Janie is so desperately interested in moving to Ann Arbor.Not a horrible book, but I wasn't interested enough to want to read the sequels.
