Title: In Gray
Author: Sara J. Bernhardt
Daisy Carmichael’s life is forever changed after a devastating car crash.
Nobody remembers the boy who pulled her from the wreckage, the boy who saved her life.
She believed she was crazy.
That is, until the dreams started.
The dreams that force Daisy into a role she never asked for.
This was a fantastically unique urban fantasy story. It starts out with the main character, Daisy a seventeen-year-old girl, being rescued from a deadly car crash from a mystery boy. The damage from the accident does damage to her brain, and as a result, she is left colorblind. In her dreams though, she can still see color, and in those dreams, she sees things before they can happen. Confused and desperate for answers, she decides to seek out the mystery boy figuring he might be the answer to it all.
There is plenty of action and mystery to keep you turning pages. There are a lot of questions answered, and a lot that are left up for the reader to decide. The author has a very smooth writing style that makes it easy to connect with and emphasize Daisy. Daisy’s character was particularly well-written because of her honest approach to the situation around her. She was level-headed and kind though she was brave and confident when she needed to be.
Throughout the story, tension is built gradually, making you nearly want to scream for the truth. The world is described in a way that makes it easy to picture, the contrast of the gray world to her full color dreams especially.
One of the most unique stories I’ve read so far this year. I really hope the author decides to write a sequel.
