Dream by Kyra Selby
Dream is best described as a magical young-love story.
Dream is about two individuals being drawn together under unique circumstances. They are as close to soul mates as you can get.
Miles has been dreaming of Ava for the last four years. Coincidentally, the dreams started after tragic events in both of their lives.
When Ava moves into town and Miles sees her for the first time, he feels like he is seeing a ghost.
After the initial shock wears off, they become inseparable. They are drawn together and cannot get enough of each other. The funny thing is, both of them have doubts about how the other feels about them.
Once the truth comes out about Miles’s dreams about Ava after a near-death experience for her, everything about their relationship begins to make sense and it becomes stronger than ever.
The first half seems to be a character build up for both Ava and Miles. Pixie and Jesse are the supporting characters here and add to the story with friendly dialogue and party experiences.
There is not much action between Ava and Miles in the first have, but from reading the excerpt it was evident that things change for those two eventually.
It is a cute story from the beginning. It is nice for a young adult novel. Sometimes a cute young love story is a nice break from some denser books you may pick up to read.
It was written really well aside from a few spelling mistakes. One more round of editing and it will be good to go.
The characters were really well rounded. Even Jesse and Pixie who were more of a supporting cast had some nice character depth to them.
