Book 1 of the In Your Dreams series.
Sixteen-year-old Zara “Zip” McKee lives for three things: basketball, books, and bailing out of tiny Titusville, Illinois, where the junior high and high school are in the same building and everyones known everyone else since birth. But when Kieran Lanier moves to town and passes out on her desk on his first day at school, Zips life gets complicated in a way she never dreamed.
Kieran has narcolepsy, and although he sometimes struggles to stay awake, he has no trouble capturing Zips heart and trusting her with his most guarded secret—he sees bits and pieces of the future in his dreams. And while he didnt know who she was at the time, Kieran had seen Zip in his dreams over five months before he moved to Titusville from North Carolina.
But just when Zip thinks that maybe she can handle having a boyfriend who sees things before they happen, her budding relationship with Kieran gets a jolt. She and Kieran learn that his sleeping disorder and the future flashes were likely caused by a drug invented by his birth father, Morgan Levert, a convicted felon who plays a starring role in Kierans nightmares. And when Zip begins to have unsettling dreams after chance encounters with Morgans former partner-in-crime, she must decide if she can live with the possibility of seeing the future when she doesnt always like what she sees.

Amy Martin wrote and illustrated her first book at the age of ten and gave it to her fourth grade teacher, who hopefully lost it in her house somewhere and didnt share it with anyone else. Not counting that early experiment in self-publishing, In Your Dreams is Amy Martins first Young Adult novel. Amy currently lives on Long Island with her husband and a ferocious attack tabby named Cleo. When not writing or reading, she can usually be found watching sports, drinking coffee, or indulging her crippling Twitter habit (and, sometimes, doing all three at once).
