Cover Love #18

It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp enters the dream of the last person he’s had eye contact with. He spends his nights crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets—and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. Parker starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day. Everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?
So maybe this is less Cover Love and more Cover-Freaked-Me-Out. THAT EYE! It gives me the heebie-jeebies. On the other hand, this cover does grab my attention, and it looks as though it fits the plot fairly well, which means it does everything a cover should. However, when I do get around to reading this book (and how can I not with such a hook?), I may have to cover the cover.

What cover do YOU love this week?
