First Line: It seems like so very long ago that I boarded the plane from New York City to Arizona, on my way to the small town of Dudley, to see my little brother Danny and to see Hal, and, in fact, it was long ago-- before cell phones came along and BlackBerrys and computers you could Google on.

This sixth book in the Chloe Newcombe series is actually a prequel, telling us what brought Chloe to Dudley, Arizona.

Two years after her older brother, James, died of AIDS in California, Chloe has ended
With a title like Dream Queen, I was hoping for some element of mysticism or fantasy. But no, the title refers to a drug that has a minor tie to the plot. But the writing does have a dream-like quality somehow. I didn't like the story much, but I did like the writing and the characters. I might pick up another book by the same author and see if I still like her.
I read "A Song for You" two years ago and loved it, despite the fact that it is at the tail end of a series that I am not familiar with. This one, a prequel, was too confusing for me. I didn't know the characters well enough to care about the surprises at the end. I still love the Arizona bordertown setting, though!
The book just seemed okay. The ending did surprise me though.
