Andy wasn’t usually sure about much, but she was absolutely certain this was the weirdest day of her life as she stood stranded in the middle of a great white room with six strangers. Well, they were mostly strangers. She could have sworn she’d seen the guy with the green eyes before, and maybe that was why he kept staring at her. 

When a man calling himself the Guardian appeared and said they had come to make their deepest dreams come true, they embark on an adventure none of them ever imagined, and the consequences of their actions would change them forever.

I am in complete awe of this book. It was such a surprise to what I expected, it completely sucked me in, It was both imaginative and creative.

The story starts of very quickly, with our main character Andy appearing in a white room with chairs. Also there’s a really sexy guy, emphasis on the sexy part whose very creative name was John D. Reamer. From the way he was described, even I was feeling butterflies. Then an array of characters start popping up. We have the bully, the princess, the funny man, the nerd and the shy girl. It was very breakfast club.

After everyone was introduced everything just went from weird to straightout strange. As in the room changed to a jungle and all of a sudden they were guards and crazy people and then someone disappeared. They realized that they were in a dream world and the only way to leave was to complete their dream, afterwards the remaining teens were able to see how their future turned out because their dream was completed. Now I’m not sure how completing a dream changes your entire life but apparently it did.

Once the dream was completed, the craziest thing would happen. They would say “Suddenly everything turned black and we couldn’t see anything”. Then there would be a picture with a flash of light and then a black screen. It sounds confusing and slightly odd but it added to the scenery and I felt like I was right there in the white room with them. It also helped that my room is all white walls.  It was a short book or at least it was an easy read. There was some drama and we do get to know the characters but not as deep I would’ve liked. Although maybe i'm biased, since the whole book I’m expectantly waiting for John’s dream and it ends up being pretty cringey.

Overall it was a fun read with a very Alice-In-Wonderland feel. It left off with a pretty intense cliffhanger so I really hope there’s a second one.
