Dream Student by JJ DiBenedetto
College junior Sara Barnes thought her life was totally under control. All she had to worry about were her final exams, Christmas shopping, applying to medical school—and what to do about the cute freshman in the next dorm with a crush on her. Everything was going according to plan, until the night she started seeing other people’s dreams.
It’s bad enough that Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer—and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next.
Dream Student is the first book of the Dream Series.
Review by Rochelle Weber:
J.J. DiBenedetto is that rare author who is capable of writing a series in which each book stands on its own. There are no cliff-hangers (one of my pet peeves) here. Whether or not one wishes to read the next book in the Dream Series is entirely dependent on the quality of the writing of the books one has already read. The only drawback to having read Dream Doctor first is that I pretty much knew how Dream Student ended when I picked it up. Therefore, it’s a testament to Mr. DiBenedetto’s talent that Dream Student engaged me on page one and kept my attention right through the final page, even though I knew who did it before I opened the book. That is the mark of a truly excellent author, and I cannot give greater praise. Buy the book and see for yourself. And if you haven’t read any of the other books in the series, I guarantee Mr. DiBenedetto will keep you guessing to the very end. I’m very good at figuring out the ends of books, but he fooled me with Dream Doctor, and probably would have done so here as well. I look forward to reading Dream Child. It’s waiting on my Kindle.
