Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.
But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.
At first I thought this is going to be a cute book for me to read and then I read it and omg NOT for kids unexceptable language LOTS of the F word!
Intense, interesting, and unique read that begs e reader to follow into the second book. Very f bomb heavy, but aside from that a hard to put down book. Believable characters
The girl in between
While this story is good, I most likely will not read the rest of the books because I don’t appreciate the use of the f word. There are so many other words to use of simple don’t use that kind of language. You can get the point across other ways. I wish authors could understand that books well written are an escape and I don’t want to feel like I’m having to skip and scan ahead to avoid the unacceptable language.
One star simply for the annoyance of language.
