Dead Dreams by Emma Right is a young adult mystery/thriller type book.
The story flows quick and keeps you interested and it doesn’t take long to read.
It is about a young woman who has just moved out on her own and is dreaming of finishing college and becoming an actress.
The only real problem I had with this story is the main character Brie. I’m wondering how on earth a kid with as little sense as she has actually managed to survive high school.
I mean really she gets an apartment she can’t afford (first mistake) so she has to look for a roommate. Now lots of college students do this with no problem at all…but they mostly know the people they move in with and if they don’t know they do at least check them out first.
Does Brie do this? NO! Another mistake. She posts on Craigslist looking for a roommate and pretty much takes the first person who comes up with money.
And this strange girl has a heck of story, which doesn’t hang together very well at all which Brie herself actually notices…but does she pay attention? NO!
I found myself wanting to smack this girl. And wondering how in the world her family could have let her grow up without knowing better than that.
The book ends with a lot of loose ends and questions too…which means of course that we have to wait for the next book to find out what really happened. But on the whole…it is worth the wait. I want to know.
