About the Book:
Lori Blaine is not your average seventeen-year-old high school student. Cool and iconoclastic in her dread-locks and natty thrift shop garb, with an IQ that’s off the charts, she is the ersatz leader of a pack of Goth kids that circle around her in the halls of Valesburg Central like a school of pilot fish. Lori speaks softly, but when she does speak, people have a tendency to listen.

But Lori Blaine has one problem: The door.

Lori’s dreams are haunted by this strange, recurring symbol. The door is always there on the periphery… beckoning to her, daring her to see what might be waiting for her on the other side. Finally, at the urging of an overzealous school psychologist, Lori Blaine decides to face her fears. The next night, she goes through the dream door… and immediately plunges into a shattered looking glass world in which nothing is as it seems and evil awaits around every corner.

But when Lori fights back, all hell breaks loose.

Created by the New York Times bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: DESCENT…. LUCID is a mind-bender of a contemporary supernatural thriller for Young Adults.

~My Review~ 
3.5 Stars

First off, I have to say I love the cover. It's a great depiction of the main character, especially deeper into the book when you have to question whether you are reading about a dream, or real life. Truly there are parts of the book that are hard to tell. 

This is quite a unique story, Lori get's very lost in her dreams, I mean truly she get's lost in her dreams! But that's not the half of it, she finds that the dream world and the real world are far more linked up and connected then any one person should ever have happen and the fate of the world could very well lay at the foot of those dreams. 

Lucid is a fun and different book, a pretty fast moving read and while you are taking both into her dreams and her real life, the author does well to keep both separated for you, other then when they cross over-but that is meant to be less clear and the mystery of it helps make the story good.
