    1. Claire Voyante is still seeing visions, but she's not sure what they have to do with. She's not having much luck figuring out where they lead her either. Her best friend Becca is distant and has reconnected with some old prep school friends, and the guy she likes seems to be hiding something from her as well. Maybe she's just overreacting but something isn't right in Claire's world. She's also worried that keeping so many secrets from Becca is putting unwanted strain on their relationship. But h [...]


    2. This companion novel/sequel to DREAM GIRL does not disappoint at all: Claire and her eclectic group of friends and family are all here again, helping us enjoy the heck out of reading contemporary chick lit mystery with a twist of magic. Lauren Mechling proves once again that fluff reading can also be smart, and that smart girls can read fluff.The most outstanding thing about this series is its gold medal-worthy characters. Claire is not your average teen chick lit heroine: she’s smart, she’s [...]


    3. Claire is just as quirky as ever but at the end I found myself not liking her as much. Claire still has the black and white dreams that draw attention to her future, but Becca seems to be growing apart from her and Andy seems to be avoiding her so she feels left out. In her efforts to deal with her issues, she ends up not talking to practically any of her friends. Then she gets let in on Becca's big secret, and involved in a new mystery.I idn't like that the cameo punished Claire for going out w [...]


    4. I read this when I was 12 years old, don't remember much of it, but I remember enjoying some parts, others not that much.


    5. Although Dream Life is a sequel to Lauren Mechling’s first book, Dream Girl, Dream Life is the first book I have read in the supernatural journey that is Claire Voyante’s world. That being said, Mechling first and foremost succeeded in creating a book that you can pick up and jump right into, without needing any back story from the first publication in the series.Claire is a typical high school girl with a not-so-typical gift; ever since her grandmother, Kiki, gave her an onyx and ivory came [...]


    6. I gave the book four stars because it was good for the most part but there were still a few things that I didn't really like. I like how I could kind of relate to it because it takes place in an ordinary high school and there's normal drama just like there would be at most schools. It's over all a pretty good book, the main character Claire falls for her best friends brother without her knowing, her best friend is Becca, and she ends up not having time for Claire anymore because she went to hang [...]


    7. In the follow up to Dream Girl, Dream Life takes Claire on another mysterious adventure. Claire’s finally getting a better grip on her abilities with the help of her necklace that her grandmother gave Claire for her birthday. In Dream Life, we get to see Claire’s growth and how she’s better prepared to uncover the meanings of her dreams to help her figure out the clues to solve her latest “Lady Inspector shenanigans” as her grandmother would say.Among my favorite characters in this ser [...]


    8. 4.5 Stars As of sequel to Dream Girl, Dream Life does not disappoint readers one bit. I found myself really liking Dream Girl, but I absolutely LOVED Dream Life. It was wonderful visiting Claire's world again - it's a world I've fallen in love with.Lauren Mechling delivers outstanding characters once again in Dream Life. Claire is a wonderfully written character - she's witty, snarky, smart, and always makes you laugh. Kiki is the coolest grandmother ever! You can always count on Kiki for a good [...]


    9. I fell in love with Claire's character immediately, although I did not read the first book. I was able to relate to her on so many levels with her friendships and perspectives, I just felt like she was a real person. As a matter of fact, the whole world seemed real, the way the scenery was described really reflected New York. The little bits about Kiki's vintage dresses and the French added character to the story overall. I enjoyed how Mechling included the secret society of the Blue Moons. For [...]


    10. Dream Life was a terrific follow-up to Dream Girl. We were introduced to a new adventure, an onslaught of new characters and even more of Kiki’s crazy attitude.I enjoyed this one a lot more. Unlike the first one, it became quite clear what the story was in Dream Life right away. While I don’t think the dreams were as intense as they were in Dream Girl, they made a lot more sense and fit in more with the chain of events written in this one. The dreams foreshadowed- oddly albeit amusingly- the [...]


    11. This book is really cool. It's about secrets, and clubs, and twists and turns. It's like a down-played mini-soap opera, not that I love them or anything. This is a book made mostly for females, so some males might look at it and make a face. Claire has weird dreams that seem to tell her what to look out for in the future. There are also clubs, rivalry between ruling the Hudson School, which is pretty much united, until Claire finds out what the reason was for the club. I'm not telling you that, [...]


    12. "The plot is improbable and cluttered with distractions. The many characters are poorly developed and lack consistency. As in Dream Girl , Claire's psychic powers are almost entirely peripheral to the story. Only for libraries where the first book is popular.—Eliza Langhans, Hatfield Public Library, MA Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information."I didn't care for this one. Maybe because it is a sequel, I kept wondering who the characters were and I didn't really understand why she kept wanting t [...]


    13. One Sentence Summary: Still learning to use her psychic powers, Claire Voyant finds herself wrapped up in secret societies and good deeds while still working to survive high school and figure out the problems with her problematic crush.One Sentence Review: Mechling’s second book about Claire improves on the problems with the first, creating a readable story with convincing high school drama and even more time with a cast of excellent background characters.Read the rest of this review at my blo [...]


    14. to have read an amazing book such as the hunger games by suzanne collins and moving forth to reading dream life is what made this book seem not that interesting. its something not everyone can relate to exactly but can relate to in different terms such as keep secrets that will definitely lead you in the wrong direction and doing good for a fair amount of people and trying to save the world at the end of the day. even if that means picking up a snickers bar wrapper off the concrete floor. It was [...]


    15. Dream Life by Lauren Mechling was an enjoyable YA mystery. Claire Voyant, the book's teen sleuth, has an uncanny ability she inherited from her grandmother Kiki. Claire has the ability to see glimpses of clues in her dreams. While these dream hints and symbols are often difficult for Claire to decipher she is determined to use her powers to help her friends.Dream Life is the second Claire Voyant mystery. These books stand well on their own but I recommend reading Dream Girl first since Dream Lif [...]


    16. This is a nice clean series that young girls will like. It's a bit like Veronica Mars but less edgy. Mechling is very good at developing supporting characters. There are many subplots that support the main plot, enough to keep readers interested throughout. One minor detractor is the amount of rehashing of the first novel that goes on in this book. Too much. The first several chapters are negatively impacted by this. Authors of series need to find a better way to make each book a stand alone wit [...]


    17. It was a fun quirky story. It was mostly clean, with sparse swearing. I'm not sure about the last half of the book though, because I got bored and eventually stopped reading. The first half was really cute and funny, but the weird, unrealistic do-gooder club was the thing that made it so boring for me. There was nothing exciting really happening. So I just skimmed the rest of the book.


    18. Love love love!!! Claire's back in another high-school-spy adventure, only this time, the stakes are as high as the Brooklyn bridge. I really enjoyed the double-love story element, which was woven so perfectly into the story. I do however wish Claire had stuck around with Becca's friends, but hey, Claire's "strong feelings" can hardly be ignored. great book!


    19. This was between a four and a three for me, so I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. It was an deal that I bought, not knowing it was a sequel. While, I liked the book I don't think it has the crossover appeal for adults that other YA has. I appreciated the dreaming theme, but think I would have liked it more as a teenager.



    20. Possibly even more enjoyable than the first. I hope to hear more about Claire's dreams & experiences in future books.





    21. This book was ok. I swear I spaced in the middle of it and I have no idea wat happened. The first one was wayyy better!


    22. I read this book after reading "All the Kings Men" so my review is a little biased based on style of writing. This was a cute story.



    23. Very fun. A little bit of everything: romance, adventure, mystery. Liked it better than the first book, too.
