Praise for Dreamers Often Lie

“If you liked the trippy hallucinations of Black Swan, you’ll be mesmerized by Jacqueline West’s eerie new YA romance.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Engrossing . . . A dizzying new twist on one of the Bard’s most famous plays.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Utterly beguiling . . . Jaye is a fiercely headstrong force and West’s writing is lyrical, lilting, [and] spectral.”—Booklist 

“Both moving and humorous . . . West’s use of quotes from Shakespeare’s various plays is restrained but perfectly timed . . . [Shakespeare’s characters] shine as they come to life in the twenty-first century.”—BCCB
“West’s middle-grade ‘The Books of Elsewhere’ series made the New York Times bestseller list because of its unusual psychological depth as well as its effective plot. ‘Dreamers Often Lie’ also uses unusual sources of depth, conveyed in rich language. . . . The moral ambiguity and deep questions of [Shakespeare’s] tragedies are woven into the story, as Jaye [tries] to hold onto her own life while well-meaning people try to take it from her. . . . Resonant.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune
