Overview

What if you could dream your way into a different life? What if you could choose to live that life forever?

Sloane and Maggie have never met. Sloane is a straight-A student with a big and loving family. Maggie lives a glamorously independent life as an up-and-coming actress in New York. The two girls couldn't be more different—except for one thing. They share a secret that they can't tell a soul. At night, they dream that they're each other.

The deeper they're pulled into the promise of their own lives, the more their worlds begin to blur dangerously together. Before long, Sloane and Maggie can no longer tell which life is real and which is just a dream. They realize that eventually they will have to choose one life to wake up to, or risk spiraling into insanity. But that means giving up one world, one love, and one self, forever.

This is a dazzling debut that will steal readers' hearts.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Sloane and Maggie have a problem. They have never met, but their dream lives have blurred together so neither can quite sure who she is. To outsiders, that's no problem: Sloane is a bright student enjoying the warmth and comfort of a supportive family. Meanwhile, Maggie continues her independent, somewhat improvised life as a promising young actress trying to make it in the big city. How they sort out their shared shut-eye lives is the subject of this fetching debut novel. (P.S. This is Ron Bass' first novel, but he isn't an unknown. He is the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Rain Man and his other film writing credits include My Best Friend's Wedding, Amelia, and Just Like Heaven. Co-author Adrienne Stolz is his longtime writing partner.)

Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
Dreams can seem so real. Sometimes it can feel like another life exists during your dream state. Maggie's dreams have taken on a life of their own, so much so that her dream self has another name, Sloane, and she lives in Mystic, Connecticut and has her own friends, family and lifestyle. Sloane's been having very vivid dreams too. She dreams that she's Maggie, an actress that lives in New York with her workaholic mother and Jade, her younger sister. Neither girl has anything in common. Well, nothing in common except for the fact that they need the other one to exist. Sloane has a crush on a boy from English class and memories of when her best friend died a year ago in a car crash. Maggie has a crush on a film student and she's being pursued by a handsome casting director with a project for her in mind. Both girls lead lives that are beginning wonderful relationships with wonderful guys that seem too good to be true. Systematically they live their lives during the other girl's nighttime. They can't control what happens in the other person's life. They just observe. Then one day Maggie confides in Andrew, the film student that she's got a crush on. Sloane is furious. This is their secret. Before they know it both girls are experiencing cross overs. Sloane finds Jade sitting at her breakfast table. Maggie, whose father died, is now having a heart to heart with Sloane's dad. The storyline gets confusing as the girls lives interweave, and as we find out pivotal moments that may have led up to a merry go round of teenage emotions in this engaging novel written by a screenwriting duo that allows each girl her moment in the sun, or moon, depending on who's awake. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan
VOYA - Karen Jensen
When Maggie goes to sleep at night, she closes her eyes and dreams about the day that Sloane has had. When Sloan goes to sleep, she dreams about Maggie’s day. The two girls seem to be living one another’s lives in their dreams. What happens if one of them goes to sleep and the other one just is not there? Who, if either, of these two girls is living the real life? Maggie is a glamorous actress. Sloane is a straight A-student from a small coastal town. Each girl falls in love. Each girl deals with loss, and the reader is left with the growing question: is any of this real or is it madness? This is complex psychological drama that requires readers to pay close attention; think Inception, Black Swan, and the like, but in book form for teens. Lucid touches on themes of family, self acceptance and identity, first love, and the desire to live a life more glamorous then the one you are living (“Maybe that’s why I invented her. Because I want to be like that, I want to make my own life happen.”). This is a haunting and touching read that will appeal to fans of books told with twisting voices like Wintergirls (Viking, 2009/Voya April 2009) by Laurie Halse Anderson. This is what nuanced storytelling is all about--challenging and fulfilling with each turn of the page. There are sexual references. Ages 15 to 18.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Sloane is a motivated student living in Mystic, Connecticut, with her mom, dad, and two brothers, and she has several close friends. She hopes to attend Columbia after graduation. Maggie is a loner and a free spirit who is working on her GED while pursuing an acting career in New York City. Her mother works long hours, and the teen is left to take care of her seven-year-old sister. These two girls have one thing in common, though: when they fall asleep, each dreams about the other's life. The dreams are so vivid that each one feels as if she is the other person. As their lives become complicated by first loves, worried parents, and unexpected friendships, Sloane's and Maggie's realities begin to blur. Are they both real? Is one of them mentally ill and imagining the other? Are they the same person? The tense story builds to a riveting climax, pulling readers in multiple directions along the way and forcing them to guess what is real and what is a dream. The plot is told from the girls' alternating points of view; both of them are well-drawn and dynamic protagonists. Even the secondary characters are fully developed. This first novel from a screenplay-writing duo is wildly unique and completely engrossing from the first page to the last. The ending begs to be reread, and teens are left anxiously wondering about the girls and their fates. This one will fly off the shelves.—Tammy Turner, Centennial High School, Frisco, TX

    Once I made it through half of the book, I thought I had an idea of who was the real one and who wasn't, then my idea totally wasn't what happened. the last chapter or 2 did get really confusing, but it all worked itself out in the end.

    I was really excited to start reading this book. I recently purc

    I was really excited to start reading this book. I recently purchased it, and the book was really pulling me in from what I had read about it on the back. The idea of the book was wonderful; very creative. Did it live up to it? No. From the beginning of the book, it was pretty good, until somewhere around the middle and got really confusing. First of all, the two character dream about each other lives. A lot throughout the book, I got confused with which character's "life" I was in. The authors kept randomly throwing a bunch of random boyfriends around, and it made it hard for the reader to get closer and build a connection with the characters. The book was not very descriptive at all, making it hard for me to visualize the characters and the setting. Only once or twice did it mention the color of one main character's' hair, and maybe eye color. I even questioned myself if I was going to continue reading the book. But I decided that I had gotten through a lot of it, so I may as well finish it, thinking it may get better. Nope, it got worse. The confusion kept getting stronger, and the plot kept twisting around. Maybe because two people wrote the book. Maybe their ideas got combined and made it into a mess. I still don't understand what happened at the end of the book. Whose life was real? What the hell happened? Overall it was a disappointing read and a waste of time. I would rate it one star, but I am giving credit f or the creative ideas that were in the book. Originally, when I first got the book, I thought it would be about trying to figure out whose life was real, and who was a dream. IF YOU LIKE ROMANCE, THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH IN THIS ONE. There is actually too much. The book may as well have been in the romance section. The romance wasn't even good. I like romance sometimes, but this was unrealistic and didn't make me feel closer to the characters. The whole plot also focuses on if one of the characters will get the part in a movie. The book was so forgettable, I don't even remember if she got it or not. I mean, come on, who people SHOULD be able to write an amazing book. This just reflected that the authors didn't work together. So next time I see a book written by two authors, I may pass it up. So words to describe it: forgettable, confusing, unrealistic, annoying, over done with the amount of romance, and just a train wreck with a bunch of dead people and blood.
