Under the Willow
My name is Jessica Grace, welcome to my life.
Jessie is the world's strongest dream-jumper: she just doesn't know it yet.
Jessie started dream-jumping when she was only 10 years old, the night tragedy struck and all she wanted to do was escape her world.
For as long as Jessie can remember she has been able to tune into other people's emotions. and experience how others are feeling. Jessie can read it in their faces and when she gets a chance, she can deepen the connection by looking into their eyes.
I have to tell you a secret though, not all dreams are welcoming, some are nightmares and others? Well, I don't even want to think about.
At the age of 19 tragedy strikes, in the form of her best-friend Mikey Jay, and Jessie's life gets turned upside down. In order for Jessie to become who she is meant to be she needs to face the memories, she has tried for most of her preteen to teen years to run away from. The problem with running from your past is your past always catches up to you, no matter how fast you try to run from it.
The Shadows of the In-Between, a world between worlds, attempt to trap Jessie in her own nightmares just as they did to Mikey Jay. In order to escape and save her best friend, Jessie must trust in herself and in Otis, a dream-jumper she met at school, who is trying to help her along the way.
Little does Jessie know a dream-jumper named Sayer has brought all these new friends into Jessie's life to allow her to rescue him from the In-Between where he has been trapped for years. It was just pure coincidence that Mikey Jay dropped into his dream world and happened to be the key factor in Sayer's plan of getting Jessie ready to become the dream-jumper she is meant to be.
