About the Author:
Lisa is a children's book author, avid reader, stay-at-home mom, part-time business consultant, school volunteer, library board president, Sunday school teacher, book club member, chauffeur, volleyball coach, wife and mom, not necessarily in that order.
Being twelve years old can be challenging, but add to that the unusual ability to experience dreams as reality and you begin to understand Patrick's need for a little self-control. A "sweet" dream devouring the world's largest ice cream sundae can end with an enormous stomachache. A fall from a bike means Patrick wakes with a broken arm. Try explaining that to the emergency room doctor Oh wait - that would be Patrick's mom. She's a dream seeker too, as are Patrick's sister and brother. If Patrick follows the family's dream-seeking rules he can have cool nighttime adventures. But if he forgets...
First of all, the cover of this novel is very nice and it fits the story perfectly. From the very beginning, the story swept me away to another world! I loved world building and the concept of dreams turning into reality but I feel like the writing style could have been a bit better. There seemed to be a lot of plot twists and action that made this story interesting. There is a slight cliffhanger at the end, and I'm really sure it will be interesting to read the next novel when it comes out. Those on the lookout for good fantasy and magical adventure should immediately get their hands on this book. I'm eager to see how Lisa Ard comes up with the next book!
An excellent read.
