Dead is Just a Dream by Marlene Perez - ADVISABLE

Perez, Marlene Dead is Just a Dream, 164 p. Houghton, 2013.  Content: PG (black magic, supernatural, etc.).  

Jessica may only be a sophomore, but she is becoming skilled at handling the weirdness around her hometown of Nightshade.  She has more things to worry about – such as her boyfriend Dominic getting ready to go on tour with his band and his ex-girlfriend showing up flashing a ring she says came from Dominic.  But there is a nightmarish horse running around and paintings that seem tailored made for people’s secret nightmare.  Jessica needs to save her relationship and save her town – again.  

Big fan of the Dead is… books!  Supernatural creepiness without being gory and disturbing.
