Dream Girl

Title: Dream Girl Author: Lauren Mechling

Publisher: Delacorte Press Number Of Pages: 309

Summary From Inside Jacket Flap: Claire Voyante has been having strange visions ever since she can remember. But the similarity between her name and her talents is purely coincidental. The name is French, amd unlike the psychics on TV, she can't solve crimes or talk to the dead. Whenever Claire follows her hunches, she comes up empty-or ends up in pretty awkward situations. But that all changes on Claire's fifteenth birthday, when her grandmother Kiki-former socialite, fashion icon, and now permanent fixture at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel-gives her something a little more extaordinary than one of her old cocktail dresses: a strange cameo, made of onyx and ivory, on a gold chain. And it's not long before Claire's world becomes a whole lot clearer. And a whole lot more dangerous. New friends, old grudges, strange jewelry, and some creepy black-and-white dreams-if Claire can just survive sophomore year in high school, she might be able to get through anything.

Review: Dream Girl was a funny and very entertaining book! I thought it was excellent. It was exciting and fun. I loved all the characters even the "bad" ones. Hopefully Lauren Mechling will write a sequel to this fantastic novel.
I recommend this book if you like young adult novels, a clairvoyant girls, and a exciting read.
