Dream Me by Kathryn Berla is a young adult novel that is scheduled to be released on July 11, 2017 by Amberjack Publishing. This book is about Zat who is a dreamer from the distant future—a time when humans no longer dream and Earth is a desolate wasteland. He dreams of the beautiful Earth of the past, and a fiery-haired beauty named Babe. Against the wisdom of his peers, Zat decides to risk everything to travel back in time and live in Babe’s dreams… Babe is the perpetual new girl in town. Her father’s job frequently moves the family around the country, and Babe just longs for a place to call home. As she settles into the sleepy town of Sugar Dunes, Florida, Babe begins to have strange dreams of a green-eyed boy named Zat. Night after night, Babe shows Zat her world. But the dreams come at the cost of nearly crippling migraines every morning. Babe’s life outside of her dreams pales in comparison to her growing love for Zat and their time spent together. But the more time Babe and Zat spend together in her dreams, the more Babe’s pain increases, and Zat begins to question the reality of his existence. How can he live a life with Babe, when all they have is her dreams? Can a dream become a reality?

My thoughts: I first want to say that I have read many books but I found this book harder to review then others. I really enjoyed reading this novel but I found it to be a light hearted romance novel with a bit of sci-fi added to the mix. This book was a great break from the typical books that I usually read. I read this book in a day because it is a fill in the blanks kind of book. Berla has created a unique plot line, beautiful description of the settings and characters but there was missing backstories with a few holes here and there. Overall, I found this book did cheer me up and was a good read. **I received an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
