Dream Frequency
S.J. Lomas, author
Christine would never have considered herself new recruit material for a secret U.S. agency. Until recently, she's just been an ordinary girl graduating from high school and wondering if a friendship with Gabriel, a mysterious coworker, would grow into something romantic. When Christine's fascination with Gabriel leads to her discovery of dreamworlds, she learns that she's anything but ordinary. In this thrilling conclusion to Dream Girl, Christine and Gabriel must choose their allegiances and face corruption, conspiracy, and the complexities of love in order to save themselves and everyone who matters to them - or die trying.

Assessment:

Plot: Although the novel is well plotted, well paced, and sustains reader interest, it doesn't read like YA despite the age of the protagonist.

Prose: Lomas’s prose is solid and boasts excellent descriptions. However, the dual perspectives read as though they are written in the same voice.

Originality: Certain aspects of this novel's premise have appeared in other books, but they haven’t appeared all together as they do here. And the combination works, making this feel new and fresh.

Character Development: While Gabriel is well developed, Christine is inconsistent . She frequently reacts to what is happening—instead of making things happen herself. At times she feels like a heroine, but at others seems quite naive. And while the two aren't mutually exclusive, the way they are juxtaposed here can be distracting.
