For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams at any given moment is getting tired. Especially the falling dreams, and the standing-in-front-of-the-class-naked ones. But then there are the nightmares, the ones that chill her to the the one where she is in a strange a dirty kitchen...and a sinister monster that edges ever closer. This is the nightmare that she keeps falling into, the one where, for the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant...


This is a tale that takes the reader off of the deep end of the imagination as the lead character brings the reader into her world, where she can see and interact with other people’s dreams. Whilst being quite freaky its wonderfully inventive and is a tale that takes Janie on a journey of growth and self discovery. Beautifully written, wonderfully emotional and a tale that left me considering implications as well as thoughts long after the final page was turned. A definite gem.
