Only In My Dreams (Book Review: Dream boy, Shawn Bailey)
I can't help but laugh while I was reading Shawn Bailey's "Dream Boy." The book is full of cliches, and it you really have to suspend disbelief while you are reading it. But at the same time, it is sweet, charming, and quite readable. It is juvenile, and may even be a little too simple for its target audience, which I am assuming to be teenagers. Although some of the sex scenes can be pretty gratuitous (why must it be so pulp-y?) the book is pretty light harmless fun. i thought the Asian/Caucasian romance seemed a little interesting, and playing it up would have added a little depth to the story.
