Summary from Goodreads:
Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has
her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date
for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her
dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday
afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.
One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu.
While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin
where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not
expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come
true, so can nightmares.

The writing is tight and well-paced, and nicely balances action with Annabelle’s character development as she tries to unravel the mysteries of... her dreams. Her teenage voice is spot on: unsure of herself, but spirited, with a sarcasm that masquerades as confidence. The plot twists and moves in unexpected yet fascinating directions." -- The Roanoke Times
