Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.  Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder. Then Eli's dream comes true.Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.

Funny, but I expected a little more originality from Moira's daughter.""Yeah, well, the dog ate my notebook with all my good excuses."

3.5 The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
Another debut, but luckily it worked out a lot better than some of the debuts I’ve read recently. Dusty seems to be a pretty typical protagonist – she hates her red, out-of-control red hair (she automatically changes it into straight, blond hair whenever she’s in a dream world, which is frustratin...

3.0 Book Review: The Nightmare Affair (Arkwell Academy #1) by Mindee Arnett
I am a true-blue sucker for boarding school stories, which is perhaps the very reason why I picked up The Nightmare Affair. That, and the cover, which reminded me so much of Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. Before cracking this book open, I was actually expecting some sort of dark, gothic, paranormal...
