Everyone has their problems in high school; pessimistic high school senior, Luna Ketz, is no exception. She is the obsession of the most popular boy at school, Chance Welfrey. Though many girls would kill to be in her position, Luna cannot help but feel that something is deeply wrong with him. When the town of Lima, Ohio is turned upside down by the mysterious ritualistic deaths of two cheerleaders, Luna’s life quickly becomes entangled in a web of lies and murders spun by the least suspected person in town. Slowly, she begins to learn of an elaborate plot that endangers not only herself but everyone she loves as well. When Luna figures out who is behind the killings, things make a turn for the bizarre when she is contacted by a friend she has not heard from in years. It is then that she realizes that she is very much in danger, but although she can avoid the killer in reality, she cannot avoid him in her dreams.

"Once I hit chapter 4, putting it down was nearly impossible. It went nothing like I expected in the best way possible. The story starts off pretty casual with Luna, a sarcastic and easily annoyed character and Chance the dream boy who is always bothering her. From here you expect the cliché girl who hates the guy, but starts liking him due to circumstances.
However, that didn't happen. The story itself is so full of twists and unforseen situations that every chapter leaves you in disbelief and dying for more information. I would explain more, but I don't want to spoil anything for future readers. If you like psychological horror with a bit of a supernatural twist, this is the best book for you." 4/5 Stars, Amazon Review
