As a Dream Jumper, a person can jump into a dreamer’s dream, share a message, and participate. As a Dreamweaver, an entire dream can be created in a studio and sent to the dreamer. But Dreamweaving was outlawed decades ago, and the studio was boarded up.
Thinking it’s her only way to reach out to her sister, Riley goes in search of the old studio. There she finds a ghost boy, who’s been creating and sending nightmares to people for years. In order to stop him and reach out to Ever, Riley is going to have to confront and overcome her own fears. (Goodreads)
I really like Riley. She’s convinced that she’ll be twelve forever and, while she’s good at her job, she realizes that she has no friends or hobbies and that her family has moved on. Not knowing what else to do, she turns to Ever in the hope of getting much needed advice.
Despite all she’s been through, Riley is still basically a kid who makes mistakes. She doesn’t realize that some of her actions may have unintended repercussions, and that sometimes rules are not made to be broken!
Gave this one a 3/5 as it’s a nice story. A fast read, I think you probably need to read the books in order so you can get the full benefit of Riley’s journey so far. Looking forward to seeing what happens next with Riley, her dog Buttercup, and guide Bodhi. Riley has potential, and I’d love to see her fulfill it!
