Really enjoyed this book. Dream-givers begin and end the book, and they're interesting and their "job" fascinating and fun to learn about. The people who benefit from the dream-givers are well-drawn - not all good, not all bad. As a matter of fact, the blend of real-life horrors with hope and compassion felt just-right (not too much horror, not unbelievably sweet). Each character has a challenge and each dream-giver helps with the characters' challenges as well as the bumps in the dream-givers' road. The Sinisteeds (nightmare-bringers) seem to be just a pothole - they don't take over the show, which is nice.
