Although Nightmare Interrupted is a Young Adult romance novel, the depth of reality Ms. Palmer interjected into the pages amazed me. Most YA novels lack firm reality, where life is revealed with its different shades of ugliness and horror. Ms. Palmer didn't pull any words, and she delivers a well written punch with Nightmare Interrupted. From the first, the reader learns that Myki's parents were murdered, and her world was destroyed. Myki, being a survivor, still has the aftershocks to deal with, reliving the nightmare of the murders every time she closes her eyes. Myki, as a young person, shows flashes of resilience that only the young can retain, and the entrance of Josh into her troubled life in described with concisely written, youthful exuberance. Their love story evolves, grows despite the nightmares that plagued Myki's life, and beautifully blossoms. I enjoyed this YA romance and recommend Nightmare Interrupted to anyone that is seeking a novel that contains true depth and deals with the harsh realities of life and the beauty that can be found even after tragedy
