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 had heard that this book was going to be made into a movie and decided to check it out. I didn't find the summary about it very interesting though, but read it anyways. I wish I would have gone with my gut instinct.

It started off pretty good. Than I began to get annoyed with the, "Janie did this" and "Janie thought that", it got extremely annoying. I also found a lot of the dreams were, in a lack of words, disgusting. There was also a lot of unnecessary cussing throughout the book (than again I believe cussing in general is unnecessary). This book is not for middle grade and may be inappropriate for upper grades as well.

I don't have much more to say. So, overall this book was a disappointment. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Rating: Did not finish reading.
