It was difficult to put this book down. I found the idea of lucid dreaming so fascinating, and the way Bonansinga incorporated it into this plot was very well done.
Lori is a well developed character, and I felt I truly knew her. As a teenager with an IQ off the charts, I thought her dialogue and thought processes were genuine and believable. However, her best friend, Hugo, is another story. Though he was not center stage, as Lori's best friend, he should have been more developed, but I couldn't get a feel for him, other than his stereotypical teenage dialogue.
Though there is a budding boy/girl relationship, the romance does not take center stage. I like that the focus stays on Lori's lucid dreams, and the worlds that the dream door leads to.
I need to mention the cover art, since that was one of the reasons I was originally drawn to this book. Designed by Conzpiracy Digital Arts, it perfectly captures not only Lori but her wonderfully bizarre and fascinating dreamscapes.
Overall, it was an interesting book with just enough "weird" for me to enjoy. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys supernatural and horror.
I received a copy of this book via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
