Shattered Dreams Review

Rating: ♥
A copy was provided for review
Sixteen-year-old Trinity Monsour wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But that isn’t as easy as it seems. Trinity is different. She is special. She sees visions, and for those she’s seen, it’s already too late.
Trinity arrives on her aunt’s doorstep in New Orleans with virtually no knowledge of her mysterious heritage. She begins settling into life at a new school and even starts making friends. But all too quickly her dreams accelerate; twisted, terrifying visions of a girl locked in a dark room. And when the head cheerleader, Jessica, goes missing, Trinity knows she has no choice but to step forward with what she’s seen.
But people believe that Trinity has information about Jessica’s disappearance not because of a dream, but because she is involved. She is kind-of dating Jessica’s ex-boyfriend, Chase, and Jessica did pull a nasty prank on Trinity. Revenge seems like the likeliest scenario. Nothing prepares Trinity for the dark odyssey that ensues while searching for Jessica, including the surprising romance she finds with Chase, or the shocking truths she learns, not just about the girl who has gone missing, but the past that has been hidden from her.

It took me a while to read this one, and honestly, I couldn't even finish it. It was a bit hard to follow and confusing in most parts. It's pretty good, the characters are well written, there's lots of mystery and things going on, but I don't know, something just felt like it was missing. I think it could have been written a little better, so things felt more clear and flowed better, not so iffy...I really liked it, but I hope that if there's a second novel to this one, it's written and planned out better. There were also a few parts that seemed to just drag on and I almost didn't feel like picking it up again. It's got good potential, but it could be better.
