Dream Girl by SJ Lomas
Genre: Young Adult
Expected Publication: November 2013, 258 pages
For Christine, dreams have never meant much. Until she meets Gabriel. Everyone thinks Christine should stay away from her new coworker at the library—thanks to his bad reputation—but when her dreams grow more vivid and she becomes entangled in a dangerous dream world with Gabriel every night, she can’t stay away. Soon it’s clear there is far more to dreams than Christine ever imagined, and now she’s on the path to making the biggest, and strangest, decision of her life.
Peering out from my shelter, I catch sight of them, right where I’d been standing. Damn, they’re close, two of them, a guy and a girl. They walk together, heads swiveling in every direction as they look for me. I try not to look directly at them. It’d be just my luck they’d feel me watching them and come straight for me.
“Gabriel, are you here?” calls the girl.
I don’t answer. She looks short enough that I could take her if I have to, but she also has a spiky-hair Anime chick vibe going on that I don’t want to mess with.
“We want to help you,” yells the guy.
Yeah, right. I don’t need any help from him. He’s built like a quarterback. He could easily crush me beneath one of his damn boots. Anime chick would probably go flying through the air to land a drop kick to my jaw. Then they’d both wipe their boots on my face and go off to “help” some other innocent schmuck. No thanks.
