Summary

Life is a dream, or is it?

Zac can remember every detail of his dreams.

He’s profoundly disturbed because he dreams about Isaac, a gay boy, and Zac is absolutely, 100 percent straight, or is he?

Isaac is troubled by his newly vivid dreams too because he’s dreaming about Zac.

Yuck!

How could a boy want to do that with girls?

Zac lives in 1983 and Isaac in 2018 so how can they possibly dream about each other?

As both boys begin to doubt their sanity and wonder if they are real, their dreams begin to bring them closer together across time.

Is there a connection between the two boys or is one of them merely a dream?

Amazing

Loved it. I just finished Dream Lives. It is a tale of two times, but is an amazing book. I highly recommend it, you will enjoy it like I did. I would write more, but I don't want to spoil it.

Interesting story line...

At first this story starts off slow & uninteresting, because your hearing of two boys (one in 2018 and the other boy in 1983)
And at first the story didn't make any sense, but as the story goes on, it gets better. and the ending. is a whopper! The narration was superb and very well done. The book is slow at first, but, just hang in there, it does get better.

WOW

Best Roeder Ending Ever!

I, of course, had some issues with the story, as anyone might, the end more than made up for it, though!

All of his books.

I love Roeder books. I’ve read almost all of them. But, maybe it’s because I live in the southern part of the United States, but you aren’t going to find a school that is that excepting. Where half the football team is gay. Where everyone is totally excepting of all gays. Where every parent is totally ok and excepting of all there children being gay... at first.

What I’m getting at is his books are a little unrealistic. This one even more so.

As far as this story goes, as a little unbelievable as it may seem, this was a beautiful story… At first I was extremely confused but about chapter 2 or 3, I figured out what was going on and the book had a very good ending. Spoiler here… I almost cried when he opened got and opened the box.

But just a little to perfect a world.
