The book has so much potential and what drew me at first is the endless possibility for a story about astral projection. The main character is a young girl coping with an alcoholic father and what makes her special is the fact that she can astrally projects her soul when she's sleeping. The pre-requisite love interest comes in the form of her hot Japanese best friend; Rei who sounds too perfect for words. He loves organic food, practices martial arts, is into Buddha philosophies and apparently have a great body. (Yup, I'm practically swooning).
The other characters are not that interesting. Taylor as the hot mean girl is pretty stereotypical and Seth as Rei's other best friend is rather boring. When Taylor took over Anna's body through a freak accident, I was expecting more drama but Anna floats around helplessly most of the time.
So although the main idea sounds really interesting, after finishing it I just feel it is mediocre at best. I was hoping for a cool story about astral projection but I'm afraid that the book is just not for me. If Anna were to travel into another dimension or maybe get signed on as a science experiment then that will be more right up my alley.
