Dreams Tell Stories

I just finished reading an e-Book that I thought was a good young adult read.  Dead Dreams, by Emma Right, is the first book in a series, as it does not finish in the first book.  Yes, there is a sequel.  Now I say young adult for there were a few things that I found myself questioning.  Quick read, yes.   But I did not think that the thinking of the main character was sound.  Too quick and hasty to jump into a dangerous plan.  Why would I thing this would work for a young adult?  Well for that very reason.  The excitement of jumping into a new plan, a new way of life, a chance to change or escape daily life.  Myself?  I found that at 50, I was thinking like a mom and saying no way would I do these things.  You might want to check it out for yourself though.  

This was provided to me by Tribute Books.  They are hosting a giveaway that you will find at the bottom of this post.  The winner will walk away with a $25 Amazon gift card or PayPal cash.

Dead Dreams video book trailer:

A young adult psychological thriller and contemporary mystery

Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams--of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.

Emma Right is a happy wife and homeschool mother of five living in the Pacific West Coast of the USA. Besides running a busy home, and looking after their five pets, which includes two cats, two bunnies and a Long-haired dachshund, she also writes stories for her children. When she doesn't have her nose in a book, she is telling her kids to get theirs in one.

Right worked as a copywriter for two major advertising agencies and won several awards, including the prestigious Clio Award for her ads, before she settled down to have children.
