WARNING: From what I can gather, YA books are meant to be read by 12 to 18 year olds. Online booksellers have listed this under children’s books. I would not want my young child, tweens or young teens reading this. Perhaps authors should take the age group they are marketing a book for into consideration before adding all this sexual content. The book would have been better without it because so much of it seems to be centered around actual sex between the characters and clichéd sexual comments such as: he must get some; the wolf must like me (this was said while Reggie was with a naked character), and “I’m nineteen and you’re beautiful. You’re lucky you can walk (after a night together). This was so very unnecessary. A pet peeve of mine is that for some unknowable reasons, grown-ups muck up something a child would enjoy with sex. Why? The grown-ups aren’t going to miss these poorly written scenes, and we (most of us) try to shelter our young from things like that. Other thoughts : The main character, Reggie, was more than a little abrasive. She had no self control whatsoever getting into fights over the slightest provocation. She would say whatever she was thinking often to her detriment, and she wasn’t shy about letting loose with the lewd comments herself. I will give the author credit that she had Reggie start to see that she had a problem with anger issues and try to deal with them. This could have been an excellent story with an imaginative plot. In the beginning, I was intrigued enough to keep reading. But by the halfway point, I became quite irritated with the direction the book was taking. I am giving it two stars because the plot was original.

This book is one that would be enjoyed by young adults and their parents as well. Reggie is not like any of the other kids in her school--she never has been and has had to fight off bullies all her life it seems. To top it all off she is more the mother in the home as her Mom turned to drink after Reggie's father left and never came back. She had one close friend, John. Then strange things started happening--with the touch of her hand a frog came back to life in class--then started the dreams. It turns out that there is an alternate reality and that is where Reggie actually belongs. Of course this other world has lots of weird type characters--some friendly-some not. And you know there has to be some kind of revolution going on between the good guys and the bad guys. In order to find out more about her powers Reggie has to find Rhys-other then in her dreams that is. And that is no easy matter!! The way the book ends you know there will be a sequel coming!
