Synopsis


What if the reality you thought you knew was nothing but a fantasy?
Jennifer Levenworth has a great, big, pounding headache. It could be because her husband, a judge, is indicted on bribery charges, leaving her unsure about everything in her marriage. Or it could be caused by the media, who are relentlessly covering the story. Or because the friends Jennifer thought she knew and trusted have turned their backs on her in her greatest hour of need.
And then the dreams begin…
And while Jennifer sleeps, she swears she can see—and hear -- her friends' and family’s most private moments. Soon Jennifer realizes she is actually learning the truth about their lives, leading her to also question everything she thought she knew about herself. But when the dreams start to reveal a startling reality, can Jennifer find the strength to ultimately transform her life?





My Review

It's not often you read a book and thoroughly enjoy it even though it left you scratching your head.  I love Jillian Cantor's writing style she can master YA and Adult alike.  I still don't know how to explain The Transformation of Things to someone with out spoiling it. So I am going to try....The characters all played fabulous catching roles. Each one had a specific reason even if it isn't the reason Jennifer(the main character) thought it was.  Life comes quick and Transformations come in all shapes and sizes. It's what you choose to do with those transformations which are important. Life altering things can happen in a blink of an eye and you walk away knowing so much more then could have ever dreamed. I can promise you will never read anther book like this. I don't think I have ever read a book so strangely good. I apologize for the short review but as I said it's hard to not give anything away on this book.

  This book isn't going to be for everyone, you will need an open mind and an open heart.

Sounds like a few life lesson to be had in this title.
I know exactly what it feels like to not be able to review a book in specifics because it's much to easy to giveaway content.

=) Thx for the review!
