Summary from Goodreads:
Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can’t help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams.
Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force.
Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets.
As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.
Krista has always know she was different. She was adopted at a young age, is smart and she is in love with a guy she has never met. Krista has been dreaming about the same guy for years but she never sees his face. She has no interest in any other guys, she is in love with her dream guy.
When her adopted dad dies, Krista and her mom decide to move from Montana to Santa Cruz, California. She has always had a feeling this is where she needs to be. She starts school where she meets her new best friend who seems to share a connection with her. Then the unthinkable happens, Krista meets the guy from her dreams. She instanly knows it's him and he feels the same way. Krista, her dream guy, Mark, her best friend Sam and Sam's boyfriend Shawn discover that they all share a connection. When they start searching things start happening. Someone out there doesn't want them to discover the truth of what they are and how they are connected.
I loved how Krista started out as a sensative girl only to become such a strong character by the end. The relationship between her and Mark was so well written. I love how their connection was instant and how they seem to balance each other out so well. I truely enjoyed all the characters and how each had their own specific personality and connection to one of the others. There were a lot of twists and turns that I didn't see coming. It's not until towards the end that you find out a little of what they are. This one kept me reading late into the night, I just couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Forgotten Souls.
