For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max, a boy she’s never met. Together they have traveled the world, ridden pink elephants, had cookie-fights at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. At least, until the morning she finds him sitting next to her in class, very much alive. But he has no idea who Alice is. Or does he? As Alice and Max get to know one another all over again, Alice learns that real-Max is nothing like dream-Max. He’s complicated and stubborn. He also has a girlfriend he’s never mentioned, and a real life Alice never knew about. But when Alice and Max keep dreaming of each other, strange things begin popping up while they’re awake: giant talking parrots, hot-pink autumn leaves and rainbow-shooting stars. Alice and Max have to find a way to make it stop—even if it means putting an end to their dream-life, too. But when you fall in love in your dreams, what happens when you wake up? Can reality ever be enough? Vibrantly off-beat and utterly original, Lucy Keating’s debut novel combines the unconventional romance of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with the sweetness and heart of Jenny Han.
