dream2When Claire Voyant turned fifteen, her ultra-chic, wealthy grandmother Kiki gave her an opal/onyx cameo pendant. Kiki instructed her to always wear it because the pendant had supernatural powers. Claire spends tiring nights dreaming in black and white about clocks, duffel bags, maternity tops and other unintelligible items. The dream elements reappear in various scenes in her waking life. Through luck and determination, Claire follows the dream clues and uncovers a nefarious plot that attempts to kill her friend’s family. Even while sleuthing, Claire also must navigate the complicated maze of a new urban high school. She is subject to the taunts of catty girl cliques. Claire has warm and interesting parents and intelligent friends. She also has a crush on her new best friend’s brother. This is a realistic look at savvy, urban New York teenagers combined with some mystery and fantasy. Recommended. Grade 7 and up. Lily Hecker, Pelham
