This week, I picked:
By Kit Alloway
Publication Date: February 24, 2015
Summary from Goodreads:
Joshlyn Weaver has always lived with a big secret. Ordinary kids spend their free time going to the movies, hanging out with friends, and searching on the internet. But for her, an evening at home usually means entering people's dreams. For many generations, her family has been part of a very powerful and very secretive society of dream walkers. Tasked with the responsibility of lowering the world's general anxiety—which only leads to war and strife in the waking world—their job has always been to stop nightmares before they go too far. By stopping nightmares while sleeping, they help to stop nightmares in real life. But when an ancient feud within the dream walker society resurfaces right when a seemingly unconnected series of very strange and very scary events start occurring during her dream walks, Josh finds herself in a race against time. The one true dream walker has never been known. Could she be the one?
Why I Picked it:
The whole idea of there being a society of people whose purpose is to stop nightmares before the go too far is something that is very intriguing, and I can’t wait to see how exactly dream walking works. Is it an astral projection of yourself that steps into the dreams of other people? Or is it after you fall asleep yourself that you are able to “walk” into the dream?
