Book Review: Places No One Knows -Brenna Yovanoff

26067507Pages: 384
Genre: Romance, Fantasy
Rating: 2/5

Synopsis: Waverly Camdenmar spends her nights running until she can’t even think. Then the sun comes up, life goes on, and Waverly goes back to her perfectly hateful best friend, her perfectly dull classes, and the tiny, nagging suspicion that there’s more to life than student council and GPAs.

Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned in the park. He is at risk of not graduating, he does not care, he is no one. He is not even close to being in Waverly’s world. 

But then one night Waverly falls asleep and dreams herself into Marshall’s bedroom—and when the sun comes up, nothing in her life can ever be the same. In Waverly’s dreams, the rules have changed. But in her days, she’ll have to decide if it’s worth losing everything for a boy who barely exists.


The prose in this book made made me not like it. It’s similar to what I thought of E. Lockheart’s We Were Liars. I thought I would like it because there were good reviews about it, but after I read it, the confusing and paranormal elements took over.

I relate to Waverly since we both run cross-country and care about our grades. I can’t relate to Marshal. You know what they say: opposites attract.

In my opinion, in the future when there are many more contemporary books with paranormal elements written, this one won’t be read as much.
