DREAMWALK is a romantic mixed beat of time travel and mythology for both teens and adults. After the death of her mother, Chloe Hawthorn is haunted by terrifying nighttime hallucinations. Determined to take control of her dreams, she uses them to find Shane Anderson, a charming and troubled musician whose online videos have been holding her in thrall. She finds him in the Dreamtime, sweating out heroin detox in a run-down rehab center.
Chloe sets out to find Shane in the waking world and discovers her dreams have been taking her into the past. Horrified, Chloe realizes Shane doesn't survive his addictions. In order to save him, Chloe must master her Australian mother's legacy — the secret of walking the Dreaming through time. But what price will Chloe pay for this Dreamwalk and will she save Shane only to lose him forever?

Review: This book was very different than anything I ad read before. I originally picked it up cause the premise sounded so exciting. It is only 149 pages so its not very long, but a lot of story was crammed into those few pages.

I loved experiencing Chloe and Shane's relationship through both their eyes and was surprised to see it portrayed in this way. Chloe kind of made me mad how she refused to try and get used to her life in New York because people have to move all the time you know?

The only other problem I had was that it was kind of slow in my opinion, basically the same thing happened over and over for about 20 pages. But beyond that it was a very interesting book!
