[WTRO2] Fifteen (The Dreamwalker Diaries, #1) by Jen Estes

WTRO2 is short for Want To Read Or Own, a feature I host here on Reckless Indulgence, where I showcase a book that has captured my interest recently. If I can swing it and get myself a copy, the book will again be featured among an upcoming book haul post.

Description

Legend has it if you die in your dreams, you die in real life. Fifteen-year-old Ashling Campbell knows that’s not true because when she closes her eyes each night, she doesn’t dream about public nudity or Prom dates. Instead, she’s catapulted to the front row of her future self’s execution – fifteen years from now – where monsters have taken control of her hometown and she, or rather, her 30-year-old counterpart, is their public enemy number one.

For three months and counting, it’s been the same dream… until an encounter with an antique dreamcatcher. Ash falls asleep to discover she’s no longer a mere spectator in these dreams – now she’s astral-projecting into the body of her future self. Each night, she goes on the run with a ragtag group of rebels – who have no idea she’s really a high school sophomore and not their noble warrior. She has to make it through each night so that she can wake up and find a way to change the future. For every action she does in the present day, she falls asleep to discover it had an equal impact fifteen years later. It’s up to her to manage her two worlds and make sure she’s still got a place in both.


Love the concept. Very close to my own beliefs of dreaming and dreams and how it relates to “the waking world.”

Thoughts anyone? Has anyone read it yet?
