New to Our Shelves
By Robert L. Anderson
“She knew what she was doing was wrong. She was taking a huge chance. Never be seen.” Ever since Dea was six years old, she’s been able to walk people’s dreams. When she first started walking (dreams), her mother taught her three rules. Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person’s dream more than once. Dea lives in Fielding, Indiana where her friend group is scarce as well as the people who live in Fielding. Dea lives with her mom, and together the two of them have moved tons of times over the years. Dea has finally made a friend named Gollum who is carefree and sarcastic enough not to ask questions about Dea’s past. Then Connor moves into town and begins to get close enough to Dea for her to almost tell him her secret of walking dreams. When Dea breaks the three rules her mother gave her, a boundary between two different worlds starts to break apart, leaving Dea wonder what world she’s actually in.
This book was filled with mystery, conflict and a hint of romance which left me asking for more of the story. The way the author writes the scenes and problems between characters got me extremely close to the characters. I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars and I would be thrilled if a second book came out expanding on Dea’s new life. I believe anyone who is ready to get emotionally connected to a character and anyone who has had dreams or nightmares will enjoy this book as much as I did.
