Horn Book Review

At Brassmere Academy for the Extraordinary, every student possesses a special ability. Plum has a unique connection with three other students with whom she dreams in unison. Lately, there've been more monsters in their dreamworld--harder-to-kill ones at that--and when one of their collective goes missing, their safe, regulated life unravels. DeStefano's latest is a simple but satisfying entry point for fledgling supernatural readers. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
