Wake by Lisa McMann

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.
She can't tell anybody about what she does -- they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.
Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant....
Very unique, fast paced and have that good concept. Janie is a dream catcher. Never had a dream of her own. The story was freaky in a good way, I mean I wonder, how one would feel if you get suck into a dream with people you know? Sharing their nightmares, fantasies, and even memories that they hold dear and secret. Maybe Intriguing and embarassing, who knows? rhetorical. I like how Janie evolves into a frantic teenager with this weird gift/diability/curse into someone who contributes and makes a difference. Typical heroine, nonetheless, it's the personality of the character that I look at. I like how Ms. McMann conjure a story so fast paced some sentences are a 3 liner (I suppose you can call it prose) that some of them did not really match up to the weight of the subject, but that becomes an understatement after a few chapters. I was left hanging though? There was a lot of unanswered questions (of course, aren't they always) that I was hoping to get at least a hint or at least a preview if this will be answered on the 2nd book, oh I know I am a little impatient. Again.
