My Review
Awa and the Dreamrealm is a unique middle-grade fantasy novel that will thrill readers of all ages.
Awa is a lucid dreamer, which means she can manipulate her dreams to do what she wants (like fly, for example). But being a lucid dreamer isn't the only thing that's unique about her. When Awa finds herself talking to a glowing peach-colored "fairy" named Veila, she discovers she's one of the rare people who can navigate the Dreamrealm. But something strange is going on in the Dreamrealm, and it's up to Awa to learn what she can do so she can try and save the day before it's too late.
I really liked this story. The world-building was detailed and imaginative. The cover is beautiful. And the plot itself is easy to follow along with while being paced nicely. Awa is a relatable character. She's the new girl at school and has no friends, so of course the bully girl decides to pick on her. But there's a scene with the bully girl (Felicity) that will have readers cheering. 
I'm curious to see what will happen next. I'm looking forward to book two.
4 stars from me!
