Dreamscape: Saving Alex 
by Kirstin Pulioff

About the book:
Sixteen-year-old Alexis Stone is used to getting away from life’s frustration with Dreamscape, a video game she’s loved since childhood. As her family prepares to move, a sleepy night of gaming pulls her into the world like never before. Trapped in Dreamscape’s realm, Alex is about to learn that being a hero has consequences… and this time, the stakes are deadly. Will helping the rebellion cost her everything she knows and loves? Or will she betray them to save her own life?

Born and raised in Southern California, she moved to the Pacific Northwest to follow her dreams and graduated from Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) with a degree in Forest Management. Happily married and a mother of two, she lives in the foothills of Colorado, and enjoys being a stay at home mom. When she’s not writing an adventure, she’s busy living one.She loves to hear from readers and fans. Please connect with her on any of her sites:

My opinion: 
Dreamscape has everything I love and want in a fantasy book. Great characters, travel to a different world, lot's of adventure and just a little bit of romance! Reading this story made me think of Super Mario my favorite video game when I was a kid. Would I want to travel to the Super Mario world? No thanks that would be scary! As I read the book I tried to imagine how I would feel and how I would react if I was Alex and I believe it would be pretty similar to Alex so that made the story more believable to me. My favorite character was Arrow though, I loved everything about him (especially when I found out who he really was and why people followed him even though he is so young). If I had read this book last year I would have given it 5 stars but since this is a young adult book and I recently started enjoying adult books a little more I give this book 4 stars. It's a good book though and if you're into young adult fantasy you will probably love it.
