Do I recommend? I do! I was worried about this one but it sucked me into the story from page one. If you’re in the mood for a quick page-turner, you might want to check this out.

Alice has been dreaming of Max her entire life and can vividly recall every adventure they’ve had together in them. He’s literally her dream guy. But then on the first day at a new school, she sees him. Turns out Max is actually real but of course, reality doesn’t exactly line up with the fantasy. The two have to get to know each other and we alternate between seeing their combined dreams and in real life interactions. I enjoyed both! But there’s a bigger mystery at large. Why do they dream of each other in the first place? And why does it seem like the lines between their dreams and reality are starting to blur? It’s a super quick read and it’s all about finding much-needed answers and finding their way to each other. But for me, I think my favorite parts of the book were: Alice’s crazy and sometimes stubborn nature (she’s funny!), the friendships and the whole notion that reality can be better than the fantasy.
Do I recommend? If you’re in the mood for something quick and cute, I would recommend this.
