I need it its a must have for the whole family.Oops!Lisa has written about what i hope will uplift me as a student. I have dreams that seems hard to attain but have a sense that this 'wake' that Lisa writes about will infuse optimism. I love the books unconditionally.

This book is an amazing read for people 16 and older. It is about a 17 year old girl who gets sucked into people's dreams. I felt like I was traveling with her for most of the book. I got it from Pulse It, by Simon Pulse, but if I hadn't, I would have definitely gone out and bought it. It was that good! I think that anybody looking for a good summer/final exam week book should read this!

"Staff Pick" by ,

Your dreams are one of the most intimate expressions of your mind. How would you cope if, every time you closed your eyes, you absorbed everyone else's dreams and had none of your own? How would that change your relationship with your friends, your parents, your boyfriend or girlfriend? Fans of paranormal young adult books like the Twilight series are sure to get sucked into this story — I was riveted.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "The trick to getting hooked on this highly satisfying first novel is to look past its disjointed opening. The initial chapters consist of flashbacks into which are woven a series of repetitive scenes wherein Janie Hannagan is unwillingly sucked into others' dreams and nightmares, and suffers debilitating side effects. But as soon as McMann establishes Janie's strange skill, she throws just the right teen-centric ingredients into the story to propel it forward and grab readers. Tough and strong Janie, now 17, seems totally independent, charting a future that will lead away from her welfare mother's alcoholism. Her turbulent relationship with Cabel, the unwashed stoner boy-turned-handsome, pulsates with sexual tension — problematized by Janie's knowledge of his insistent dreams about killing a man. But then Cabel learns to communicate his desires to Janie through lucid dreaming at just about the same time that Janie finds out that she can influence the dreams she enters. The plot twists keep coming, even if one or two are shopworn, and the writing has a Caroline Cooney-like snap that's hard to resist. Ages 14-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "McMann also gives useful attention to the science of dreaming. This book is ideal for reluctant readers, especially girls."
"Review" by , "McMann lures teens in by piquing their interest in the mysteries of the unknown, and keeps them with quick-paced, gripping narration and supportive characters."
"Synopsis" by , 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....
