In Brenna Yovanoff's new novel that Maggie Stiefvater, author of The Raven King, calls "a dream wrapped in razor wire or razor wire wrapped in dream," a love story unfolds in the dark halls of contemporary high school.
Waverly Camdenmar spends her nights running until she can't even think. Then the sun comes up, life goes on, and Waverly goes back to her perfectly hateful best friend, her perfectly dull classes, and the tiny, nagging suspicion that there's more to life than student council and GPAs.
Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned in the park. He is at risk of not graduating, he does not care, he is no one. He is not even close to being in Waverly's world.
But then one night Waverly falls asleep and dreams herself into Marshall's bedroom-and when the sun comes up, nothing in her life can ever be the same. In Waverly's dreams, the rules have changed. But in her days, she'll have to decide if it's worth losing everything for a boy who barely exists.
[STAR] "A tightly woven, luminously written novel that captures the uncertain nature of high school and the difficult path of self-discovery." -Booklist, Starred
[STAR] "Waverly and Marshall burn brightly . . . both refreshingly flawed as they come into their own. Readers will forgo sleep themselves to witness their vibrant, achingly real story unfold. A brilliant romance." -Kirkus Reviews, Starred

"A heartfelt exploration of human connection."-Bulletin
"[A] deft portrait of the politics of high school popularity."-VOYA

"Addictive and ridiculously romantic. I fell in love along with Waverly and Marshall."-Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners
"I can't tell if this novel is a dream wrapped in razor wire or razor wire wrapped in dream. It doesn't really matter which it is-either way, I woke up satisfied."-Maggie Stiefvater, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver trilogy, The Raven Cycle, and The Scorpio Races
"An unusual, emotionally fraught love story. A narrator who feels this 'real' is a genuine achievement."-Frank Portman, author of King Dork
