Krista Miller has a hard time controlling her emotions. Sometimes they get so strong they make her sick. She's also had a hard time adapting to social situations. Her only comfort is her dream - a boy that visits her every night. This started when she was a child and he has aged as she does.
Her emotions are tested when she moves to California and to a new private school. She thought private schools would be better, but she finds out kids are the same everywhere. Then she meets her dream boy.
She discovers some amazing things and a few amazing friends and literally has to fight for her life on several occasions but through it all her dream boy is there with her.
I met Tiffany on Twitter (@authortiffany) and we chat now and again. She expressed interest in my stories, which naturally made me inclined to read hers - especially since she is essentially writing an urban fantasy. I'm really glad I got this book for my Kindle. I read it in one sitting, staying up until about four in the morning to get it done. The story itself is extremely compelling, the characters are well written and developed and I constantly wanted to know what happened next. The mystery of what Krista and her new friends were was well developed and well presented, revealing enough to keep the reader satisfied as the story progressed, but not so much that you figured out what was coming.
Tiffany's writing style is engaging and fast paced. There were a few editorial issues but honestly, the last NYT #1 bestseller ebook I read had some typos too - it wasn't a major detriment.
I'm looking forward to more in this series.

That being said, there were a few technical issues. For some reason the formatting was kind of weird on my e-reader. There were be breaks in paragraphs in random places. It was especially bothersome when there were breaks in the dialogue. Sometimes I'd have to read it a few times to see who was speaking via context clues. I'm not sure what the issue was really. Also, there were some grammatical issues. This may not be a problem for some people, but it tends to pull me out of the narrative. That's more of a personal issue though.
The pacing in the beginning felt a bit slow, but any shortcomings were made up for in the last 40 pages or so. It felt like that's where the story really became fully realized, and it was a fantastic ending. Not only did the story feel original, but it left me wanting more. I really was on the edge of my seat, and I would love to know what happens next.
I would recommend this book for sure. It starts out as one thing, but turns into another book entirely by the end. The romance aspect that I felt was overdone in the beginning made perfect sense in the end. I will definitely look for the authors next book

Couldnt even finsih it!
I'm shocked by the ratings this book has! I could not get into it. I have read over half & not only find every character annoying but very uninteresting! It is very repetative & lacks so much. I have attempted several times to finish it but can only get in a chapter at a time because it can't hold my attention. All 4 main characters are exactly what the title of the book says-meant to be & they never let you forget it. It seems like all the story is about is how they can't live without each other & it just makes the characters very pathetic. All the main character talks about is how perfect & gorgeous her male counterpart is-how he'll realize she's uniteresting & he'll leave her. Maybe once I actually finish the book I'll feel the same way as the othere reviewers but even for the price of the book I don't think it's worth it!
