Dream Boy
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.

One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.

This was an interesting story, but I did have some issues with it in the middle.

I liked Annabelle, Martin, and Will, although Annabelle was so clueless when it came to Will! He was so obviously in love with her, and she had no idea!

The storyline in this was okay, although I felt that things weren’t really explained enough for me. While I could follow most of what happened, I did have issues with the whole ‘how the dream-people came to be’, and I did get confused because of this.
There was some romance, and I have to say that Annabelle and Martin made a cute couple, even though at times I really wanted Annabelle to be with Will instead. The romance was the best part of the book for me though.

The ending to this was okay, although things were a bit touch-and-go at times. I did find that I lost interest after the half-way mark, but I was happy with the way things ended.
Overall; an interesting YA paranormal romance story,
6.5 out of 10.
