Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Waverly loves to run. It stops her mind and forces her to concentrate on one thing. When she isn’t running, she must deal with her boring classes, her role in student government and her fellow classmates who are not always nice. Marshall is bright, yet lazy. He tries to dull his feelings with booze and drugs, and now there is a chance he won’t even graduate. Then during one of Waverly’s dreams, she finds herself in Marshall’s bedroom and she begins to question her waking actions too. Is she really visiting Marshall while she sleeps? Will Waverly take a chance during her waking hours on a boy who is so set on destroying himself?
Places No One Knows is a stand-alone novel with a hint of the supernatural. Readers experience the story through two points of view and slowly unravel events as each main character progresses on their own journey. As their stories twist together, each character learns more about themselves and others around them, yet no profound and startling truths are available for the reader. Yovanoff has created a story that is easily enjoyed, but quickly cast aside when finished.
