Dreamer by L. E. Delano - ADVISABLE

Dreamer by L. E. Delano, 312 pages. Swoon Reads (Macmillan), 2018. $11.

Language: R (62); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13   



A sequel to Traveler, this book picks up a few weeks after the last. Jessa is still reeling from the death of Finn and she’s still practicing her traveler abilities by visiting herself in other realities. Until Eversor, her former English teacher and Finn’s murderer, shows up at a museum in New York and tries to harm her friend and maybe something more, Ben. Eversor and her dreamer, Rudy, want to cause a convergence and get rid of all the alternate worlds/lives/timelines. And then Pirate Finn, a Finn from another reality, comes to her house. Pirate Finn’s Jessa was killed in a fire, but this world’s Jessa doesn’t want to be the replacement, especially since she’s still mourning her own Finn. Mario (their dreamer) wants them to work together to stop Eversor and save all of the realities, but that’s easier said than done.

There’s an Irish pirate, so pretty much this book has plenty of teen girl appeal. The romantic triangle will definitely keep the reader guessing. The adventure and action between different realities will appeal to all teens. The plot moves quickly to the exciting finish. Highly recommended for libraries where Traveler has circulated well.
