Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.

One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.

If dreams can come true...then so can nightmares

I love the sound of Dream Boy, a fascinating world where dreams can become reality. Only in this world it sounds like Annabelle's dream boy may have brought something with him...I'm totally fascinated by this book and can't wait to read what these two authors have created in the young adult genre. What's that saying? Be careful what you wish for. In this case I'm wondering if it's more like be careful what you dream of.
