Vibrantly offbeat and utterly original, Lucy Keating's debut novel combines the unconventional romance of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with the sweetness and heart of Jenny Han.
For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams - and only her dreams. Because he doesn't exist.
But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. Real Max is nothing like Dream Max. He's stubborn and complicated. And he has a whole life Alice isn't a part of. Getting to know each other in reality isn't as perfect as Alice always hoped.
Alarmingly, when their dreams start to bleed into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?

I'm a clinical psychology doctorate student. I love to read a good romance or ya novel to escape from the everyday stresses of life.
I read the summary of the book and thought it just couldn't go wrong with such a sweet idea. I love the land of dreams where I can run free with my dream book characters. The actual dreams were the best part of the book for me. The overall story had less of an emotional pull but was finishable. Max in real life was hard for me to want to be friends with or be romantically interested in.
