In 2023, the innovative MMC released a Wristcuff to be worn over a microchip implanted beneath its host’s skin, giving the wearer pleasant dreams. Better sleep promotes a peaceful lifestyle and improved health. At least this is what the MMC have the population believing. There are those for whom this technology fails to work: Dreamers, like Amelia and Rose (and Joe). They’re shunned because of their inability to adapt and evolve like the rest of the human race.
Amelia decides to fight for the freedom to dream. With the help from her BFF, Sarah, and her new friend, Rose, the four friends vow to bring MMC down.
Highly entertaining and kept me turning the pages. Nice pace and fun characters. I did struggle at times trying to figure out who was speaking and the tad bit over use of inner dialogue by Amelia always questioning herself made me not like Amelia at times ... but overall I did enjoy the read.
The MC Amelia basically is a dreamer, which goes against the norm from the creation of Wristcuffs. Dreamers are looked down upon in society, and they are study subjects at the MMC, the creators of the Wristcuffs.
Amelia soon learns the dreams are actual warnings. And I'll stop there with the summary because I don't want to spoil the plot.
I believe this is a great start to the series. There were some areas where the pacing slowed and pulled me out of the story, but the actual story plot outshined those lull periods.
I definitely recommend this book. It's a great debut novel, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
Amelia is a dreamer- one of the lucky few who can't be controlled by a corporation and gets to experience her own dreams. Only, society does not see her as lucky, but as damaged, something to be fixed. She too believes something is wrong with her until she meets people that convince her that's not true. How do you save a world full of people that are completely under the control of the very thing you are trying to fight?
I love love love the premise of this book. It's so immaginative that I don't think the author could go wrong. And they didn't. The writing is good and the characters are so well developed that you can't help but root for them. Amelia gives you the impression that she can do anything she attempts. That's a special character.
I wasn't a huge fan of the dreams themselves, in this story. More often than not, I found myself skimming those paragraphs. Luckily, those were a small part of the book so they didn't really hinder me to much in my desire to keep reading and reading until I was done.
I had to stop 3/4 through book 1. The premise (futuristic government mind control of an unsuspecting populace) was interesting. However, the substory read like a bad after school special or, if you don't know what that is, a bad "big brother" or bachelor-type tv reality show. Ugh. Usually the YA books feature a mature-ish teen or 20something. "Dreamer" has whiny young adults who can't decide whether saving humanity is as important as their social lives. Barf.
