    8.5 out of 10 It's not 5 stars just because I can't fangirl about a middle-grade book, but, gosh, it was awesome! Little X-Men in da Gossip Girl style with mystery and sci-fi elements. Fast-paced, dynamic, beautifully written, heart-touching. I really enjoyed this one.

    I really love Lauren DeStefano, and I would love to see her expand on this. This book was very short, barely 200 pages, but it dealt with a big story and some big ideas, and they just didn't get enough time on the page. It felt very much like an outline for a longer book or even series.

    This was a strange little book that was pretty into for the first 1/2, but it kind of fell apart for me in the second half - and yes, this is only 200 pages, so, um, that's not a lot of time to do that. Tbh, there wasn't enough time to do a lot of things since there was a LOT of take care of this novel, and only 200 pages to actually accomplish anything. Safe to say that pacing got incredibly fast at the end and I was left blinking in confusion and wth moments. But I really did like the concept a This was a strange little book that was pretty into for the first 1/2, but it kind of fell apart for me in the second half - and yes, this is only 200 pages, so, um, that's not a lot of time to do that.

I think the main characters were interesting, and the first part of the novel was really intriguing. Jumping into dreams with the kids and the spookiness/mood/atmosphere was fantastic. It was totally my vibe and I was feeling it. I really don't have too much to say beyond that, since it was such a short book, but it was a decent story. 3 crowns and a Belle rating!

    *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* I absolutely adore these quick, little middle grade books by Lauren DeStefano and Dreaming Dangerous was no exception. With a unique twist, four best friends not only go to a secluded school where they have been their entire lives, they also have been dreaming in tandem for as long as they can remember. With non-stop adventure and action, the book is hard to put down and will captivate the middle grade audience. I think the most important take *Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review* I absolutely adore these quick, little middle grade books by Lauren DeStefano and Dreaming Dangerous was no exception. With a unique twist, four best friends not only go to a secluded school where they have been their entire lives, they also have been dreaming in tandem for as long as they can remember. With non-stop adventure and action, the book is hard to put down and will captivate the middle grade audience. I think the most important take away from the story is the bonds of friendship. Regardless of distance or separation, friends will always find a way to be together. The bond shared by Plum, Vien, Gwendle, and Artem is magical and had me feeling all the warm, fuzzy feels. The plot and mystery surrounding Brassmere Academy didn't play out like I thought it would. And that was a nice surprise because the twist at the ending wasn't the twist I was anticipating. The story was the perfect balance of mystery and fantasy. While these students all have extraordinary talents, the mystery is what kept me reading. What happened to Artem, what is really going on at Brassmere Academy, and who is Dr. Abarrane? While searching for answers, their friendship is put to the test, with dangerous adventures, life-risking rescue missions, and surprise events that make them question dreams versus reality. The story was a fast read and while I was left with a few lingering questions, I enjoyed this refreshing read.

    Deliciously different, eerie and suspenseful! Readers feel slightly off-kilter and uncertain right along with the 4 protagonists as begin to awaken to the reality that something in their world is deeply wrong. Large font and the cover make this book seem young but the complexity of the tale pushes it comfortably into the middle school audience. Lots to think and talk about as the story spools out.

    I have been a fan of Lauren for years now. And have read a lot of her books, but not all of them, not yet. I have read all her middle grade books, though, and my god, they are so very good. It took me some time before I finally read this newest one, but I got to it. And I'm so glad that I did. Because it was such an amazing book. Parts of this book was perfect. And I'm pretty sure I loved it more than all her other books. Yet I'm only giving it four stars. Which I do have some reasons for. Most p I have been a fan of Lauren for years now.

And I'm pretty sure I loved it more than all her other books. Yet I'm only giving it four stars. Which I do have some reasons for. Most parts of this book were so good and I enjoyed reading it so very much. The writing was excellent too. But it is a four star for me, because it ended too fast. Hmph. But first I will mention that this book was all kinds of stunning and good. I found the writing to be awesome and I so adored reading from the point of view of twelve year old Plum. She was just the cutest. And I loved getting to know her a little bit. She has lived her whole life at a school in the woods, a school for children with special gifts. I was so curious about all of it and I wanted to know more. Plum have the gift of dreaming with her three best friends. They dream together each night, fighting monsters and doing dangerous things. They are truly the best of friends, and I loved that so. Because Plum, Vien, Gwendle and Artem were the most adorable together. I loved reading about them. Especially loved that Plum started to feel something else for Vien. So so cute. This book tells the story of Plum and her friends. About how they live at this school, the things they learn, and what happens to them. They all write down their dreams and share them with the teacher. But things are getting strange. And Artem is suddenly missing. I loved how they searched for him, how they learned new things about their school, who not to trust. I liked the plot in this book a whole bunch. I liked learning about their powers and how they came to be. At least the one page I got about that, haha. Needed more. But yeah. While I loved parts of this book a whole lot, it was not enough. The book was too short. I mean, sure, it's a middle grade, but I have often read middle grades that are around five hundred pages long. I felt that this story was too short for this book. The ending was rushed. Beyond rushed. Many answers left behind. It was sort of happy, yet not too, and nothing was explained more. It was suddenly just done with. Yeah. It wasn't that good. Too rushed and with way too few answers. I loved the book, but not the ending. And so much else could have been better if this book had been longer too. It took me less than two hours to read this one. I wish it had taken me two days, because I felt like it could have been so much longer. I wanted to know more about Plum. I wanted to discover more about her feelings for Vien. I wanted more of her friendship with all three of them. And I wanted to know more about their shared dreams. Especially wanted more of the ending, what happened next, how it all happened. Sigh. I wish this book was longer. But despite this book not being everything I wanted it to be, since it was too short, and ended too fast, it was still such a great read. And I loved Plum a whole bunch. And I very much adored reading her story. I only know that I would have loved it so so much more had it been given more pages and more time to be excellent. I'm hoping Lauren might one day write the rest of this story, because to me it was far from over. Still. Dreaming Dangerous was a stunning book full of great friendships and I'm so happy I read this book. --- This review was first posted on my blog, Carina's Books, here: https://carinabooks.blogspot.com/2018...

In fact, these aspects of Dreaming Dangerous reminds me quite a bit of Victoria Forester's The Girl Who Could Fly. It's basically a shorter, slightly younger alternative of the other book. Which is good, because The Girl Who Could Fly was (and still is) one of my all-time favorite books. I love the ambiance of these books. The setting and workers at Brassmere are described in a deliciously spooky way, and the dreams Plum shares with her friends are fascinatingly weird (as is the fact that Plum doesn't even realize all the ways her control over her dreams are unique). I loved reading the dream sequences, especially. Honestly, my main issue with Dreaming Dangerous was that it wasn't long enough: it didn't give us long enough at Brassmere to explore that oppressive ambiance, it didn't give us long enough with the kids to really get to know them or their friendship dynamics on a deeper level, and it didn't give us enough time with the drama and adventure later in the book. If it had been longer, it would have been even closer to perfect. This is a reaction I actually share with my middle-school-aged brother, by the way: I lent the book to him when I was done with it, and when I asked what he thought he said he wished it had been longer and more detailed. The conversation about the book also morphed into a long debate about medical ethics, so I have DeStefano to thank for that as well as for the fun read! I always love when media forces us to think about deeper topics. All in all, Dreaming Dangerous is a great little book that really just suffers from one main flaw: length. And that's only an issue for us–if you or your reader likes shorter reads, then Dreaming Dangerous could be absolutely perfect. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Artem has disappeared, and in our dreams he's warned us that someone is coming to get us. Who is he talking about? Gwendle, Vien, and I have decided no one can be trusted, so we've started lying to the doctors and in our diaries. We used to be in control of our dreams, but something's changed. I don't feel safe in them anymore, and sometimes I can't wake up. I've got to find Artem and figure out what's going on. He doesn't seem to be in Brassmere Academy anymore. If we can't trust the doctors, what can we do? The beginning of the plot seemed innocent enough, but it quickly sucked me in. I found myself very curious about the dreams and trying to figure out what was happening at this isolated academy. It seemed like the plot was equally split between reality and the dream world. The four friends would often go to sleep in order to be together and to speak in private. The dreams were very imaginative and created a lot of drama. Even though I enjoyed most of the book, I didn't care much for the climax and resolution. I figured the plot would amp up a bit once the secret was revealed, but it actually signaled the end. Also, there seemed to be a bit of magic with the gargoyles that wasn't found earlier in the book. In the end, I wanted to know more about what the doctor was doing and why he was doing it. I still don't know what happened to him after everything was resolved. I'm wondering if there's going to be a sequel, although it didn't feel like that was in the plans. Overall, I really enjoyed most of the book, and you may not have the same feelings about the ending. Everyone is different!

    Dreaming Dangerous by Lauren De Stefano For grades three to seven To be honest, the book was as disappointing as it was exciting. The story starts with four twelve year olds; Plum, Vien, Gwendle, and Artem; who live and study in Brassmere Academy for the extraordinary, a school for orphans with extraordinary powers.

The four children in particular had the mysterious ability to share dreams with each other, where they fight spooky monsters and have other adventures. It was a strange school and had strange grown ups, also known as The pinks coming to test the children living in the school. For the most part, the children accept that they are being tested for their own good. The children are happy ...mostly ...that is ...until Plum begins to receive some strange warning that all is not well with the school. The story starts out with a great deal of enthusiasm. I'm not big on reading fantasy stories, but even I got hooked by the exciting twists and turns through most of the book. And just when my expectations were drawn to the highest levels, the author abruptly ends the story and I found myself wondering what just happened. The ending could easily have stretched on to twenty five pages more ...at least. It feels like we have just been on a roller coaster with scary twists and turns, our heart rate reaching its peak just before the coaster comes to a sudden stop and every sensation falls flat. Its a good book overall ...but leaves you wanting more from the story.

But their dreams become more unusual and they start to receive strange warnings in them. When one of the friends disappears, the others realize that things aren’t as they seem at this school, and they can’t be sure who to trust. There is lots of action and ideas about dream experiences for middle grade readers who like those sorts of stories. There’s a little bit of violent gore, but not anything that’s over the top for kids in grades five and up. The story can be a bit confusing at times as the action switches between real life and the dream world. Also, the ending is a bit abrupt without a clear understanding of the motives for the villain of the story.

Curious readers that would want to know "what happened next?" won't get any answers for anything except the main characters. The way it's written makes one think it's the first book in a series, which would have made this kind of ending all right. However, this does not appear to be the case. It seemed a very cheap and easy way to end a book. A simple explanatory paragraph would have been enough to bridge between the end of the fast paced story line to the epilogue. I will probably try one of the authors other novels to see if this is a consistent style or whether this was a fluke (or even something insisted upon by some sort of deadline or, who knows, perhaps it was something insisted upon by someone in the publishing office). Like I said the *majority* of the book was enjoyable and it was just the ending that ruined it for me.

    I was also disappointed when it ended so quickly. Just when I was getting to know the characters. However, as a librarian who struggles to find enough books that are 200 pages or less and compelling enough to finish(and don't feel like the "chapter books" they read in 3rd grade), I am happy to have found this book. It is just right for the 4th or 5th graders who are excited by the descriptions of 300+ page fantasy books their classmates describe and they don't have the stamina to finish.

The story boasts well developed characters, fantasy and mystery intertwined and hopefully there will be at least one more book with these characters. I would love to know how they adapt to their new worlds not just in an epilogue.
