Sleepless by Terri Clark

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Michaels has the ability to dream walk. It's a power she doesn't want, but it forever alters her life when she's unable to find an abducted teen before she's killed. While Trinity does help police capture the killer, Rafe Stevens, her involvement makes her his next target. Stevens pleads insanity and his convincing performance, aided by his despicable attorney, get him sentenced to a mental institute where a diabolical physician experiments on him. Now Rafe's escaped the sanitarium and he's after Trinity. Like her, he now has a special ability, one that allows him to stalk Trinity through her dreams. If he kills her in her sleep, she'll die for real. To survive she must find him first and the only person willing to help her is Dan Devlin, disillusioned son of the shady lawyer who knowingly aided Rafe in getting away with murder. Can she trust Dan with her safety, not to mention her heart?

Sleepless is a suspenseful, exciting debut from new novelist, Terri Clark. Sleepless mixes action, romance and plausible plot that makes a fantastic new novel that YA readers will devourer everywhere and will be waiting anxiously for to get their hands on this book. The fast pace and the direction the novel takes will make up hunger to keep reading. Your hands will be glued to the pink pajamas on the cover, that doesn't really do justice for how great this book is.

Trinity is what you think from her looks as the typical goth girl, but she is far from it. Trinity is strong and has a great attitude and is a very well-developed character that fit the role of the character needed perfectly. When she was around Dan, she was very relate able. And all though her 'ability' is very unreal in my sense, it didn't feel superficial at all. it seemed like it was completely real.

This novel will make you laugh crazy and scare your wits out. I especially loved the comments Terri made about Supernatural, myself being a huge fan also, it was hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing at the comments made about Sam and Dean. I've seen this novel compared to Wake by Lisa McMann numerous time, and yes, it is very similar to Wake, with the dreams and the guys, but the whole atmosphere of the novel is completely different. Wake is much darker then Sleepless, the writing is completely different and Sleepless is much lighter then Wake is, but Wake is an extremely good novel, yes, and so is Sleepless. So just make sure you know how different they are. But if you like Wake, you are sure to love Sleepless. Sleepless is hugely recommended.
