Her eyes saved his life.
Her dreams released his darkness.
After four years of sleeplessness, high school junior Parker Chipp can't take much more. Every night, instead of sleeping, he enters the dreams of the last person he's made eye contact with. If he doesn't sleep soon, Parker will die.
Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. But what starts out as a chance meeting turns into an obsession; Parker's furious desire for what he needs pushes him to extremes he never thought he'd go. And when someone begins to terrorizing Mia with twisted death threats, Parker's memory blackouts leave him doubting his own innocence.
I can't imagine four years of sleeplessness. This is me, who has a hard time pulling all-nighters, let along years of that! But Parker is different. Just not different for this to start causing him some trouble, after all, he thinks he's dying in the opening!
So you'd think that the girl who's dreams that Parker sees would be the love interest. But nope, it's the ability for him to sleep in her dreams that makes her important to Parker! And that's a pretty great reason! It's just not the norm, so that was a great twist!
Then there's the whole thing with the guy that's stalking Mia. Because with Parker's blackouts, he's a viable suspect. Which is not something that you want to think about yourself! But Parker deals with it a pretty good fashion!
There were a few questions that Parker tried to solve, besides the above, which are, why does he have this power and can it hurt him? Where's his dad? And will he ever be done with these dreams, and live a normal ish life?
I enjoyed this book a lot, it was really great and entertaining and unique and lots of great twists! Can't wait for more!
