Synopsis according to Goodreads:
Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does.
Eli is dreaming of a murder.
Then Eli’s dream comes true.
Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.“
It’s a fun, quick read that isn’t anything terribly original (except the Night Mare concept, which was neat), but has some witty moments. My one complaint is Dusty’s constant, grating sarcasm (negativity is wearying, and defensive negativity aimed at people who are trying to support you isn’t endearingly hip, it’s churlish).
I’d recommend it for fans of lightweight YA, especially contemporary fantasy ones.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
