What if your true love only existed in your dreams? In the dystopian town of Lunamoon, everything is structured. Humans are created by science, and everyone is programmed to follow specific regulations. However, Shawneleigh never lived up to the Council’s expectations. She has narcolepsy – a disorder that causes sleep spells – and the Council banned her to live in the hospital since she couldn’t be counted on to fulfill other duties. Lunamoonians receive prophecies through dreams that the Dream Maker sends to them, but Shawneleigh hadn’t received a vision in years until she succumbed to one of her sleeping spells. It is through these dreams that she meets a man claiming to be the Dream Maker, and they begin to form a bond. However, Shawneleigh cannot control when she falls asleep, and the Dream Maker finds a way to manipulate her illness. The only problem is that when he manages her, her health deteriorates. But no matter how hard they try, they can’t stay away from one another.“Beautiful Nightmare: Some Dreams Become Your Reality” is a novel about love, life, and the importance of those who care about you. Love, above all else, is the best thing that we have to give.
