Before I start…. This is my 100th post on this blog. So awesome!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This has not affected how I feel about the book nor the contents of my review.
I chose to read this book because it promised to be a haunted experience. It was really quick to read since it only has 178 pages. I’d recommend this book to teens and older children who like mystery and can stomach a little scare. But also to adults who like YA books with paranormal or mysteries.
It reminds me of Nancy Drew with paranormal elements. This is totally a compliment, as I think I read every Nancy Drew book. At first, the story wasn’t that creepy, but the more I read the creepier it became.
Amy has this same crazy dream every night. Someone’s chasing her and she wakes up when they catch her. The more she tries to find out about her dreams the farther into the dream she goes. The more information she gets out of the dream to help her solve the mystery.
The characters were enjoyable. At times though, Amy was rather mean to her new friend Coral. Coral and Shane are very supportive of Amy’s theory about her dreams. I secretly think it’s because they have experienced weird things as well. I don’t think they thought it would be this serious. The spookiest person in the story is actually the old homeless guy, Edgar.
Although there was some predictability to the story, there were lots of surprises as well. It was a very enjoyable read. Great to take me out of my reading rut.
