When Nara goes to sleep at night she dreams her entire next day. What an awesome way to be prepared! I would honestly love to have that ability. But Nara sometimes hates it because she is bored. She lives the same day twice. Nothing is new to her. Until one day she stops dreaming her next day and she realizes how difficult it is to live through the day without being prepared. She has to study, she has to practice soccer because she has no clue where the ball will go, and she doesn't see the betrayal from a friend coming.
Then she meets Ethan, the new guy in school. He is shy and doesn't talk much but has a bad reputation from his past school. I really enjoyed the slow build of their friendship to eventually more. It felt real and natural. No insta~love and no love triangles. Ethan still has a mystery surrounding him but he is very supportive of Nara and eventually very honest as well. He didn't drag everything out for a long length of time. They had some great butterfly worthy scenes. I'm very picky in my romances so I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed their relationship.
Now onto the exciting drama. Nara never really tried to change her days unless something really bad happened to someone. When Nara tries to change things Fate comes in to correct them. Fate doesn't want Nara messing with his plans. The book then takes on kind of a Final Destination feel where Fate tries to inflict the damage on people that Nara stopped. But Nara wants to use her dreams for good. Why does she have this power if she can't use it? Ethan worries for Nara's safety if she continues to mess with Fate but maybe she can figure out a way to change it. Really looking forward to the sequel.
"Imagine knowing you're going to have a bad hair day, or that you'll burn the toast for the eighty-zillionth time, or that Mount Everest will appear on the tip of your nose a half hour after lunch. That's when a ponytail, cereal and Benzoyl Peroxide come in handy."
"But not touching you would be the hardest thing I've ever had to do."
