The really weird thing is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where’s she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But they seem to know things about her in real life that they couldn’t possibly know, which is mystifying. Then again, Liv could never resist a good mystery. . . . ”

Long before I did my Backshelf Book post, where you guys suggested I read the Ruby Red Trilogy, I had already read Dream a Little Dream and LOVED IT.
This reinforces for me that 1. Kerstin Gier is a rock star and 2. I will be reading all her future work forever.
More about the book: Similar to the Ruby Red series, Dream a Little Dream is set in England (specifically London). Liv and her family just moved to the neighborhood, and in the midst of starting a new school and settling in, her dreams become vivid and strangely real feeling – like some of her new classmates (cute boys, of course) start making an appearance…
First off, I just loved Liv. She’s so funny and her shared inner thoughts and observations made her so relatable and charming. She’s the type of heroine who’s boy obsessed but is aware of that fact and makes fun of herself for it.
Then, there’s Liv’s family. They’re a bit crazy and going through some changes, which only adds to the overall hilarity of the book.
Another aspect I loved was the sleuthing Liv does and in her dreamscape, where she dreams but can sort of navigate through corridors and doors and locks and moments from her past.
There’s so much to discover and learn in Dream a Little Dream that I have no doubt the second book will have more to uncover and dig into. This book was pure fun, and I cannot gush about it enough.
- Lottie, Liv’s German nannie (too adorable!)
- Liv’s cute and funny sister Mia
- The high school gossip blog, Secrecy
- Twists and turns I was genuinely surprised by
I pretty much loved everything about this book. Not only was it fun to read, but it was well written with witty dialogue and a fantastic mystery. The paranormal aspects of the book were well planned, and I’m dying to know more about how things work and what’s next for Liv and her new friends. Dream a Little Dream is simply a must-read new series that I cannot recommend highly enough!
