Life is but a Dream by Brian James is a beautiful story about a schizophrenic teenage girl, Sabrina, who is the middle of getting it treated. She believes that she has a special way of seeing the world but her parents disagree. When she meets Alec at the Wellness Center, they form an immediate bond and he believes all the things that Sabrina sees. But the more she spends time with Alec, things get complicated as she stops taking her medicine and decides to take control.

Sabrina is a very interesting character. The fact that she has schizophrenia, she has a different and unique view of life. This uniqueness makes her truly captivating. Although her life is complicated, author Brian provides his readers with so much detail that it helps in understanding her character. She is so likable that readers will root for her to get better. As for Alec, he displayed a series of different emotions and truly made complicated decisions.

The writing in this book is perfect. The main character suffers from schizophrenia that not a lot of people know about. However, Brian does a wonderful job of incorporating it in a book and provides a better understanding. He gives us plenty of twists and turns to keep the story unpredictable. Even with all the information at hand, as readers close in on the ending, there is still a sense of mystery of how it will end. Life is but a Dream is simply beautiful and will appeal to anyone who loves a great story with a wonderful theme.
