DREAM STUDENT by J.J. DiBenedetto

DREAM STUDENT                                 4  STARS
Dreams Series: Dreams #1
by J.J. DiBenedetto


OVERVIEW:
What would you do if you could see other people’s dreams? If you could watch their hidden fantasies and uncover their deepest, darkest secrets…without them ever knowing?

Sara Barnes is about to find out. She thought that all she had to worry about was final exams, Christmas shopping and deciding whether she likes the cute freshman in the next dorm who’s got a crush on her.

But when she starts seeing dreams that aren’t hers, she learns more than she ever wanted to know about her friends, her classmates…and a strange, terrifying man whose dreams could get Sara killed.

“Dream Student” is the thrilling first installment of the Dreams series.



REVIEW:
The first book of the DREAMS SERIES is DREAM STUDENT by J.J. DiBenedetto.  The next books are DREAM DOCTOR, DREAM CHILD and DREAM FAMILY.  The author took on a tricky subject to write about.  People are not normally interested in anyone else's dreams, just their own. The plot of the book is when Sarah Barnes, pre-med student, starts  getting something like radio signals of other people's dreams.  It starts by her seeing  the night time dreams of a killer.  That's when the pace picks up.  There is now a race against time to find him and stop him before he kills.  You can't turn the pages fast enough to find out what will  happen next.   I would recommend this book to anyone who loves thrillers.  The only problem is Book 1 will not be enough.  You'll have to have the next three.  I wasn't fond of the cover.  It just didn't fit the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS

I was given a  copy of this book DREAM STUDENT from the author J.J. DiBenedetto.for this unbiased review.

I'd give the cover about a 2 STARS
