CHAYSING DREAMS by Jalpa Williby

CHAYSING DREAMS by Jalpa Williby

Tess has a perfect life, everything comes easy and natural, the best parents, top of the class in high school, terrific athlete and awesome friends.  Her life is perfect, except for the same invasive nightmare that’s haunted her, her whole life.   Is it her in the nightmares or a vision of someone else?  Who is the girl running from?  On her sixteenth birthday, Tess meets a mysterious boy named Joe.  She’s never really felt any romantic feelings for a boy before, and has always scoffed at her Mom about love at first sight.  But she feels an instant connection/bond to this boy and doesn’t understand why.  Unfortunately, she never sees him again. Or does she?

I ran across this book in several different reading groups and I’ve heard nothing but good raves for this book.  I’m finally glad I had a chance to read it.  The praises are well-deserved, and I can’t wait to read the second one, Chaysing Memories

The chemistry between Tess and Joe then Chris is so palpable, I felt like I was right here with them.  Even with Jack, which Tess sees only as a friend, you can feel his yearning, wishing their relationship was more than just friendship.  This is the type of book you can’t really describe in a review as I don’t want to give away any of the twists and turns of the plot.  But you will live through all the joys and sadness of Tess’ life, especially when she finally understands the meaning of true loss.  Will she be able to pick herself up and learn to live again?

The ending of the book was perfect to set up for the sequel.  It leaves a lot of unanswered questions.  I want to know more.  How does Chayse escape?  How will Tess get her memories back?  Who and what are Tess and Chayse?  Are there more of them?  I absolutely loved this book and give it 5 feathers.
