Katie Shaw makes a wish upon a star one night for her life to be different. She wants to be exciting, and she wants a boyfriend who's with her all of the time. (Katie is a quiet and not very popular girl who looks drab, wears dull clothes...) Katie has a crush on a boy at school called Jason, but he barely notices her.

Over the next few days Katie has a feeling that something extraordinary is going to happen to her... something big. That night she dreams of a handsome guy who rides a motorcycle and he says he really knows her. His name is Heath. He says he can change her life.

As time goes by Katie starts becoming more popular at school, Jason is noticing her, and she buys a new fashionable wardrobe. Katie also keeps seeing Heath in her dreams. But sometimes he isn't so nice and charming, sometimes he's quite nasty and mean. Katie is starting to get worried and scared to go to sleep and she wants to get rid of Heath. But at night when she sleeps he appears in her dreams. And the more she dreams of Heath the stronger he is getting. Katie is starting to see Heath outside of her dreams to, but how can this be?

This was a pretty good young-adult thriller from the 1990's. I found the storyline interesting. I was curious to see what was going to happen next. Heath reminded me a little of a Freddy Krueger type of character, not in looks, but the way he shows up in Katie's dreams.

A short enjoyable read. ( )
