SUMMARY: What if you could dream your way into a different life? What if you could choose to live that life forever?
Sloane and Maggie have never met. Sloane is a straight-A student with a big and loving family. Maggie lives a glamorously independent life as an up-and-coming actress in New York. The two girls couldn’t be more different—except for one thing. They share a secret that they can’t tell a soul. At night, they dream that they’re each other.
The deeper they’re pulled into the promise of their own lives, the more their worlds begin to blur dangerously together. Before long, Sloane and Maggie can no longer tell which life is real and which is just a dream. They realize that eventually they will have to choose one life to wake up to, or risk spiraling into insanity. But that means giving up one world, one love, and one self, forever.
MY THOUGHTS: I don’t want to give away too much so I’ll just say a few things. It was alot like the movie “Inception” I guess. It’s really interesting and gripping until the end then you’re just wondering “what the hell just happened?” Everything was all good in the beginning, just two girls sharing their lives through dreams. Sloane lives the typical life of a teenager while Maggie’s life is more of what typical teenagers dream of. Then they both find love and you think everything’s all good until the both start to go insane. That part was a little disturbing and emotional actually. So they embark on a downward spiral of insanity but you think oh it’s all going to work out in the end. It actually doesn’t. They both decide that they’re figments of each other’s imagination and that they’re going to go away and let the other live her life. And it does end that way, with one of them going away and one being able to live her life. The only thing is, after I read the book I couldn’t figure out what happened and who was left, which was frustrating, hence the whole “Inception” comparison.
