Description of the Book:Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.
Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.
As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.
His life depends on it.
Pre-Read: Cheerleader and a goth. Edgar Allen Poe reference for a title officially curious.
While Reading: OMG this is like the craziest book ever im in love.
Summery: So it all started with an english assignment. Don’t you just hate when you get partnered with someone like on the outs with your social circle that’s what happened to Isobel and Varen hence cheerleader and Goth….. This is so not going to go well. I mean Varen is the king of darkness and well Isobel is the queen of pink land. So that’s not that great combination. Then slowly Isobel gets pulled into a world that makes no sense. Shes seeing and hearing things she’s know shouldn’t exist or should they. Everything gets mess up. Slowly she starts to lose her Queenship because of the king of darkness. What the hell is going on right….. Well if I told you, you wouldn’t have fun reading the book……
Overall Thoughts: This book made me want to read the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe. Kelly Creagh is like total amazing. I love her imagination. I mean to take the words of poe and change it into a reality. Like wow amazing. I mean if everything Poe had written about had been real the world would be a very scary place. I mean come one dreams being a reality. Scary especially if you have a scary mind to a normal on looker. The book is so amazing. I love that it all starts because they get stuck working together on a project that they didn’t even want to do together in the first place. It is just amazing how a friendship can grow from something so simple. I loved this story so much. I think if you can find the time to get it or pick it up from your local library I so recommend it. It is a wonderfully written story.
Rating: I give it a 5 out of 5
