Odea Donahue has been able to travel through people's dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person's dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dea's mother is certain are right behind them.
Then a mysterious new boy, Connor, comes to town and Dea finally starts to feel normal. As Connor breaks down the walls that she's had up for so long, he gets closer to learning her secret. For the first time she wonders if that's so bad. But when Dea breaks the rules, the boundary between worlds begins to deteriorate. How can she know what's real and what's not?
This book was so creepy! And so enjoyable to read! So different and unique, which is what I love in a book! So yeah, a unique world, and a girl who's been a part of it, but only knowing the bare basics, because she's different. Yeah.
Dea has these powers, but her mom gave her the rules, because hey, it's a strange thing, to have to go into peoples dream, so they can live. And it was pretty fascinating learning more about this world, because it was totally weird and cool!
There were two mysteries in this book. Where Dea's mom was, and who killed Connor's mom and little brother. Being in Connor's nightmares of losing his family members, that was sad, and pretty darned scary, the faceless guys!
I kinda wish that there was a sequel, because things were left off a bit strangely, what with Dea and her mom with her dad. And having the bad guys in the human world arrested! So one good conclusion, and one that I want more of!
I just really enjoyed reading this book, with it's awesome mystery and world!
