Wake by Lisa McMann, recommended by K. Bird Lincoln
This book kind of took me by surprise. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. And it's in present tense!
A teenager girl has the misfortune to be sucked into people's dreams whenever they sleep nearby.
This has embarrassing consequences when her classmates nap at school. However, things get really freaky when she starts to dream of a knife-fingered monster.
And there's a sweet, sweet romance with a cool-but-vulnerable guy.
Definitely will be all over the sequel.
