#BookReview: Sleeper by @smudged_ink @Netgalley

 
As if surviving high school wasn’t hard enough, Sarah Reyes suffers from REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, a parasomnia that causes her to physically act out her dreams. When she almost snaps her friend’s neck at a sleepover, Sarah and her nocturnal habits are thrust into the spotlight and she becomes a social pariah, complete with public humiliation.

When an experimental drug comes onto the market that promises nighttime normalcy, Sarah agrees to participate in the trial. At first, she seems to be cured. Then the side effects kick in. Why does a guy from her nightmare show up at school? Are the eerily similar dreams she’s sharing with her classmates’ coincidence or of her making? Is she losing her mind or does this drug offer way more than sleep?
 





MacKenzie Cadenhead is the author of the middle grade fantasy novel Sally's Bones and co-author of the upcoming young reader series Marvel's Super Hero Adventures. She is a trained dramaturg and former editor for Marvel comics. She lives in New York with her family and has at least one totally crazy dream a week. Visit her at mackenziecadenhead.com 



This one would have been a lot better if the story would have gotten started faster.  It felt like it took forever for things to really get going and by that point I was kinda done with the book.  If you don't mind that the story takes a while I would totally still try this one out.  Because even though that happened the book wasn't bad just a little slow.  This one centered around dreams was pretty good I liked the idea that you could take over someone else's body while they sleep thanks to this drug.  That could be pretty interesting if done the right way. 



Yep thats a pretty scary thought.  The characters were all well and good and I liked pretty much everyone. This one would be great for people who love books about dreams and seeing the mean girls getting whats coming to them.
