I really enjoyed this book. It is written in lyrical prose and has a unique take on paranormal. It is a very quick read. The pacing is excellent. The characters are relatable. The romance is well-done without being overblown. There are some great twists in it along the way. Although others found her writing style choppy, I thought she did a great job with the lyrical prose. The one downside is that I found it a bit hard to get into initially, but it got better as it went along, so I recommend sticking with it even if you don't love the opening pages.

This was such a good book! It sucks you in as soon as you start, never really slowing down and always taking turns you don't expect. I read it in two days, it's pretty easy to get through. The writing is very powerful, I had the rare experience of crying during one particularly strong scene... Overall a highly reccomended book!!

I loved every one of these books. I was so into it I could not put them done. I already ready them all twice.

An ok book, a little slow paced and not the writing style that I could get into or maybe am just not used to I guess, but not bad. I liked it enough in the long run that I will probably go on to read the next one.

I really enjoyed this book, though others may not like the writing style. it was a quick read read it in 2 hours. It is best to have the whole series at the same time.

Janie Hannagan has a gift -- or rather a curse -- for being sucked into other people's dreams whenever they're sleeping nearby. She is witness to funny things; strange things; typical, boring things; and, in one instance, something so disturbing she won't even drive on Waverly Road any more. With the help of resident hottie Cabel Strumheller, Janie must discover whose terrifying dream she beheld, and what is wrong with her that she was able to see it in the first place.

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....

That was the Goth stage, where I decided I'd never get the girl of my dreams because of my scars. Not to mention the hairstyle. (pause) But then she slammed a door handle into my gut. And when a girl does that to a boy, it means she likes him.

"You must be a freakin mess Hannnagan" - Cabel to Janie when discussing just what her dreams can drag her into.
