Overview

When the lines between dreams and reality disappear, wishes can become nightmares...

An excerpt from Falling:

'"This is a dream," I said slowly, unclenching my cramping hands. "You are a dream."
"This is a dream," he agreed. "So what's the harm?"
"What's the harm? You're harming me right now! What a mean thing to joke about, bringing someone's brother back from the dead."
His eyes narrowed and his jaw clenched. "I'm not 'joking'. I'm promising you something no one else can. And you would have to give so little in return."
I laughed and roughly rubbed away the tears that were starting to burn my eyes. "Uh huh. And what exactly is it I would get?"
"Your brother back." I could see the color rising in his cheeks.
"Right, back from the dead," I replied bitterly.
"He's not dead," Jordan said in short clipped tones.
My bitter amusement was drying up, as was my fascination of this bizarre, recurring dream. "That doesn't even make sense," I said dully, reaching up for a lock of my hair to pull.
"Does it have to?" he asked hurriedly, seeing I was going to wake myself up. "It's just a dream, you said it yourself. You get what you want, I get what I want."
"I don't get exactly what it is you want."
His eyes narrowed. "I don't like repeating myself. Yes or no."'


For sixteen-year-old Bixby, the last few years have been a misery of loss and rejection. Her mother's death, her grandmother's Alzheimer's and her father's despair and distance have robbed her of the family she once had. With only her brother Lincoln and her imaginary friends from the town she dreams of every night on her side, she struggles on.

But then Lincoln is killed in a suspicious car accident and Bixby is devastated to lose her best--and only--friend. Desperate to have him back, she accepts an offer from a stranger from her nightmares.

Jordan delivers on his promise and Bixby finds she must deliver on hers. The problem is she doesn't know who--or what--Jordan really is or what exactly she promised in returned.

Each evening they spend together in her dreams brings them closer together and tears Bixby further from her own reality. What does Jordan really want and what is Bixby going to lose in return for the only thing she thought she wanted most in the world?

Explore a new paranormal world where djinn rule and usually get what they want.

Look for the sequel, Winter's Dream, due out soon.

Great book, I loved the strong lead charecter and how different it was from other YA paranormal books out there right now. No vampires, no werewolves, no clumsy girls falling for the hot mysterious guy in the first two pages of the book. Can't wait for the next one!

I typically do not read YA novels, I find them a little on the boring side. In truth, I have never made it through a single YA novel! However, THIS one grabbed my attention and kept it throughout! AJ did a terrific job of developing a fantastic setting, great and real characters and wonderful plots. I really felt like I was there, in the story. Which shows that she is a terrific story teller. I really can not wait until the next installment is published, as she did leave a cliffhanger.

Tremendous book. I'm not a YA but read anyway - glad I did. Very good plot, great character development, impossible to put down. This writer has talent. Can't wait to read the second book of the series. Would recommend this book to anyone, YA or not.

This was a very good read. I read this book and then bought Winter's Dream (second book in the series). Winter's Dream was even better :).

Falling has a great plotline and ending.

Often, paranormal fiction only seems superficially researched, but the level of research here was excellent. That, combined with a well written and believable protagonist, made this book outstanding. I look forward to reading the sequel!

I thought this was good. Who has not had a dream that you could not distinguish fully whether you were awake or asleep? It was different concept than other books. I wished she had talked more to Uncle David to find out more, I think he would have shared more if she had not panicked and left. I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens. Where did Linc go? What secrets did Grandma have hidden? What of the mysterious blond with the silver bracelets... the list goes on. I thought this was extremely well written, I love the realism to it which is always a point scorer with me. Nothing like an ex scorned.Now to find the second book :)
