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....



stellarmoneca rec'd this book to me and I started reading it at work last night. In my hour break, I had read almost a quarter of it and fallen in love with the strange world and power that Janie mysteriously possesses. Add in a bit of romance, while not fully explained, with the outsider Cabel and I was sucker-punched ♥ I'm anxious to start the sequel (Fade) tonight but here's a warning: The book is so easy to read, written in almost short form... not a fully fleshed out narrative I guess is how I'd described it. In any case, I read it in just a few hours. It's not that expensive but it's something I would probably check out of the library before spending money on ♥ Just my opinion :)

Also, bonus... this is the first book I've read in a while that I didn't picture Alex Pettyfer as the main guy... instead I pictured.... *see icon* ♥ lol

Hehehe, I love your "see icon."

I've never heard of it before. It was very short?

I'm going on another bookstore raid next Sunday, I'll see if I can find it.
