Dreamers Often Lie will knock your socks off with an unreliable narrator. Jaye suffers a Traumatic Brain Injury and is seeing and talking to Shakespeare characters, namely Romeo and Hamlet and MacBeth is there too.. She is trying to convince everyone around her she is sane, including herself, as she gets ready to play a leading role in her high school play, A Midsummer's Nights Dream.
Shakespeare lovers will adore this book.
The story is full of action and twisted plots and creative characters. There is anger and intrigue and love triangles. Dreamers Often Lie is a quote from Romeo and Juliet as well as this awesome, page-turning novel. This is a smart book and Jacqueline West conquers serious issues and situations with ease.
I was spellbound until the very last page.
