Author Jaclyn Weist has a new book out!
But her nightmares don’t end when she wakes up. Her stepmother and stepsisters threaten to ruin everything she holds dear. She must protect the secret that both she and her father have magic or they will use it to their advantage.
As Sydney learns to control her magic, what seemed impossible before—escaping her stepmother and those ever-present stairs—is now at her fingertips. When she learns the ultimate plan of her evil captor, Sydney must stop her at all costs, or she will forever be trapped inside her nightmares.
Sydney lives her nightmares every night. While other teenagers are dreaming of boys or traveling to exotic places, she must run a staircase with no beginning or no end, or a terrible debt will never be paid.
Sydney doesn’t know which is worse, when she’s awake and dealing with her stepsisters and stepmothers, or when she’s sleeping and dealing with her dreams. She just wants to be a normal teenage girls, but most girls aren’t forced to run stairs every night or learning magic. She loves school and wants to make a difference in the world. She just needs to stay awake long enough to do it.
Luke has worked hard to be who his father wants him to be. When he sees Sydney the first time, he knows she’s the one. But for more reasons than you’d expect. He loves sports and having fun with his friends. He’s a protector at heart and will do anything to keep Sydney safe.
Sydney’s dad, Alex, would do anything for his daughter. He lost his wife years before and doesn’t want to lose his daughter. When she starts having nightmares every night, he’s willing to go to any length to help rid her of these unnatural dreams. He has a secret he can’t tell his daughter, no matter how much he’d like to—especially when she doesn’t understand why she can’t travel with him.
Jade is a free spirit who meets Sydney on the way to camp. Her mom works as a counselor, which Jade enjoys because at home, she doesn’t have much time with her. Being the youngest of several siblings tends to make her feel a little invisible. Thank heavens she has great friends at camp to keep her company and treat her as an equal.
Jaclyn is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve at BYU and they have six happy, crazy children that encourage her writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next.
