a mysterious adventure where romances, friendships and even the power of dreams are tested. You don't want to miss out on this exciting and totally unique adventure."-Girls' Life.comA thrilling, romantic young adult novel that, like a dream, will have you questioning what is real. Martin is the boy of Annabelle's dreams. Literally. When he suddenly appears at her high school, Annabelle is giddy with excitement? until she realizes if dreams can come true, then so can nightmares.Annabelle's dreams have started coming to life. Which is great when you're dreaming about a gorgeous guy whose purpose in life is to win the Best Boyfriend Ever Award. And then Dream Boy walks into your science class. Talk about the perfect date to homecoming. But not all of Annabelle's dreams are so? friendly. And when the dream stops, the nightmare begins? It was all just brain waves, I thought-disconnected, like the notebook myfriend Talon keeps. She draws a line down the middle; on the right she writes everything she remembers about a dream, and on the left notes about what's happening in real life. Reality on one side, dreams on the other, a clear line between the two.But it turns out there are no clear lines-just a jumble of what is and what might be. And all of it is real."The authors expertly weave the real world and the mysterious world of dreams-where we access our deepest desires-in a perfect blend."-Eric Orloff, author of In Dreams"
Mary Crockett likes turtles, licorice, and the Yankees. Madelyn Rosenberg likes cats, avocados, and the Red Sox. Luckily they both like the weirdness of dreams (and each other) enough to write novels together. The friendship has survived 3 moves, 6 kids and countless manuscript revisions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major Meh MILD SPOILERS BELOW. Dream Boy barely surpassed the "just ok" category, and only because of the choices made in the love triangle. The love triangle itself nearly landed the book in the DNF abyss. But the way the relationships were handled surprised me, and brought would-have-been stand-by characters to the forefront. While it robbed "Martin" (the abrupt name change was bizarre, by the way) of a lot of personality, it did lend a bit more depth to Will. It was a tradeoff I could happily live with. Aside from that, though, it was seriously meh. The main character was too ordinary to make me feel any kind of affinity, and the stereotypical high school hierarchy was grating. (As a side note, I think I'm done reading about high school, especially when it's handled as poorly as this. This book has cured me of any lasting affection for high school in YA.) The danger factor was slight and the creepiness factor disappointing. Ironically - or maybe deliberately, I dunno - it felt like a dream, the kind filled with odd, random moments (I kept expecting the many weird moments to flow together cohesively and shock me, but no, they were just there). It was the kind of dream that you forget immediately upon waking up. So, all in all - not super impressed.
