It’s tough being the sister of an almost perfect brother, but eighteen-year-old Brie plans to make her own way in the world, and if a life without sleep can earn her enough money to pay for acting school—well—she’ll work two jobs and do whatever it takes. Lack of sleep is probably the only excuse for the foolish decisions Brie makes. Taking on a roommate just because she can pay, ignoring all that roommate’s secrecy and trusting every twisting change in her story, allowing temptation to overrule common sense and uncommon nightmares... Reading this book is like watching one of those movies where the audience cries out, “No, don’t open the door!” Being a teen, and a sleepless teen at that, Brie spends a lot of time analyzing her own motivations without figuring them out. The story’s definitely scary, filled with an intriguing combination of foreshadowing and surprising twists and turns. When perfectly absent perfect brother reappears, and perfectly leavable perfect parents suddenly need Brie’s help, well, it’s suddenly too late. Coincidence, or plot? Sadly, this is book 1 and the ending’s a cliffhanger. Dreams have turned to either nightmares or premonitions, and even a rebellious teen might remember to pray in a foxhole. But you’ll have to wait for book 2 to find out what was really going on. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy of this book as part of the author’s blog tour, and I’m offering my honest review with this post on my blog.
