This book is rather interesting, it is probably a 3.5 or 4, but I thought the end lacked a little sophistication.

I was surprised by the third-person present tense of the narrator. It required some awkward sentence structure on occasion, but the idea of being a living "dream catcher" was interesting, and McMann's delivery of it was clever, and she didn't pull any punches. The kids in the story dream about sex, violence, and a variety of other topics.

I hope she pushes the envelope a bit more in the next two books in the series.
