Review: Dreamwalk by Sarah MacManus

Dreamwalk by Sarah MacManus
Publication Date: March 14, 2011
Publisher: YoungRebel Publications
Genre: YA

The Story: After the death of her mother, eighteen year old Chloe Hawthorn is haunted by terrifying nighttime hallucinations. Determined to take control of her dream journeys, she uses them to find Shane Anderson, a charming and troubled musician whose online videos have been holding her in thrall. She finds him in the Dreamtime, sweating out heroin detox in a run-down rehab center.

Chloe sets out to find Shane in the waking world and discovers her dreams have been taking her into the past. Horrified, Chloe realizes Shane doesn't survive his addictions. In order to save him, Chloe must master her Australian mother's legacy — the secret of walking the Dreaming through time. But what price will Chloe pay for this Dreamwalk and will she save Shane only to lose him forever?

My Review: It's amazing to read this book. You're reading through Chloe's point of view, but you get journal entries from Shane. I liked reading from both sides, and it's intresting to see that BOTH Shane and Chloe feel the same way about each other, but think's the other is just a hallucination! It's also sad in some ways, since Chloe starts to wonder if she'll never get to see him.

Sarah MacManus has created a Romeo and Juliet theme, in a much different way. Will Chloe be able to save Shane- you'll have to read it for yourself to find out!
