Staff Reviews

Waverly has a seemingly perfect life with one, indescribable and unimaginable secret that she's not even sure is real. With the number of sleepless nights piling up around her, friendships crumbling in front of her eyes, and a new look into the difficult life of a classmate and school loser, Marshall Holt, Waverly is beginning to see just how impossible being "perfect" can be. This book was brilliant, beautiful, and imaginative. A must read! --Jenna

Fans of Lady Bird will love this novel about a good girl who dreams herself into a bad boy's room in this lyrically romantic novel that Maggie Stiefvater, author of The Raven King, says she read and "woke up satisfied."

Waverly Camdenmar spends her nights running until she can't even think. Then the sun comes up, life goes on, and Waverly goes back to her perfectly hateful best friend, her perfectly dull classes, and the tiny, nagging suspicion that there's more to life than student council and GPAs.
Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned in the park. He is at risk of not graduating, he does not care, he is no one. He is not even close to being in Waverly's world.
But then one night Waverly falls asleep and dreams herself into Marshall's bedroom--and when the sun comes up, nothing in her life can ever be the same. In Waverly's dreams, the rules have changed. But in her days, she'll have to decide if it's worth losing everything for a boy who barely exists.

"Waverly and Marshall burn brightly . . . both refreshingly flawed as they come into their own. Readers will forgo sleep themselves to witness their vibrant, achingly real story unfold. A brilliant romance." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred

"A tightly woven, luminously written novel that captures the uncertain nature of high school and the difficult path of self-discovery." --Booklist, Starred

"Yovanoff offers a multilayered exploration of human connections, particularly those that manifest in unpredictable ways."--Publishers Weekly, Starred
