About the Book
Thirteen-year-old Ashlynn Acosta recently learned that her dramatic dreams are gifts to use and that even the nightmares can be turned into problem-solving tools. Her intuitive skills are put to the test when she dreams about a murder before it happens. Ashlynn must find the true killer because she has unwittingly pointed a finger at her friend as the prime suspect! Solving the crime is only the first mystery unfolding inside a greater mystery: how to use dreams to solve this crime. Ashlynn enlists the advice of a dream expert and a lady detective who gets clues from dreams, in addition to employing the usual detective's tools of reasoning and observation. Ashlynn finds eerily accurate dream clues-but not pat answers-that may help save her friend. You can exercise your intuition in problem solving. Try Ashlynn's intuitive methods detailed in the reader's guide. You might find your inner sleuth!

My Take on the Book
This was a great adventure story that drew me in from beginning to end. I loved the characters and how the author really developed the world in which her story takes place. The story itself was fun and had a plot that made you want to continue reading. My daughter loves mysteries and while we were reading this I could tell that this story kept her attention by some of the gasps that I heard her take while she was reading along (which is always something I love to hear!). All-in-all this was a great book that I highly recommend!
