Janie Hannagan's math book slips from her fingers.


The first time Janie got sucked into someone else's dream, she was eight-years-old. Now, at 17, it's more frustrating than ever - the falling, the drowning, the naked-in-public and the sex-starved dreams. She's never told anyone and then she falls into a gruesome nightmare in which she is not just a spectator but a participant.

I thought this was a great plot concept and the book was written in a sort of diary form which kept the book moving. It does include some mature subject matter but I would recommend it to the mid-teen level and up.
