Won through the GoodReads First Read program :)

In the beginning of the novel we meet Theia a sixteen year old girl, who lives with her strict father in Serendipity Falls. Theia begins having these weird dreams about a boy and than next thing you know he's not only in the dream anymore but also in real life at school.

The book started out slow as we go through theia's daily routines. The story starts to pick up when Haden (dream boy) shows up at school. The story did hold my attention and had a really interesting concept. The two things I didn't really like about the book was how fast they "fell in love". I mean let's be realistic, they're 16-17 year old who never had prior relationship, and yet they known each other for about a couple of days and BAM! they're in love...that really bothered me. Also the other thing is that by the time you get near to the ending it feels rushed and actually there really is no's like a cliff hanger/ set up for a sequel...if like you with more questions rather than answers.

Overall an okay book, it is like all the paranormal YA out there. I only recommend it if you're all into the teenage angst..otherwise i say borrow if possible not worth paying for.
