Waverly Camdenmar spends her nights running until she can’t even think. Then the sun comes up, life goes on, and Waverly goes back to her perfectly hateful best friend, her perfectly dull classes, and the tiny, nagging suspicion that there’s more to life than student council and GPAs.

Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned in the park. He is at risk of not graduating, he does not care, he is no one. He is not even close to being in Waverly’s world.

But then one night Waverly falls asleep and dreams herself into Marshall’s bedroom—and when the sun comes up, nothing in her life can ever be the same. In Waverly’s dreams, the rules have changed. But in her days, she’ll have to decide if it’s worth losing everything for a boy who barely exists. 

“All the things are want are hard to find the words for.” 


I felt as if I was in dream myself while reading PLACES NO ONE KNOWS Just by the way that some things were described and what happened, I felt like I was in dream along with Waverly and Marshall. It was unbelievable, and like Marshall I wondered how she was doing it to begin with. It was a mystery. I think that even Waverly herself didn’t know. It was a magical adventure and I couldn’t seem to get enough of the story, more that I read, and that seemed to just get fascinating to me to the point where I could not put a book down, even if I needed to, I couldn’t. I spent couple hours last night and this morning reading it. One more page turned into 40 more pages. I was in drawn into both Waverly’s and Marshall world. It had me going through a lot of emotions. Of course I loved the name Waverly, it’s so rare, actually I am not even sure that I came across it before and I loved it, it feels like it fits her. I been hearing about this book quite often in the past couple months, and eventually I knew that I had to check it out. Once I started it, I wished that I had picked up PLACES NO ONE KNOWS sooner. When I first picked up I wasn’t sure what to expect since this is the first book that I read by BRENNA YOVANOFF and I did not find myself disappointed. Instead I was amazed.

For some reason, I couldn’t imagine Waverly with Marshall, and maybe because they were so different and hang out with different group of people. Or maybe fact that they didn’t acknowledge each other, not till the dreams started happening. I couldn’t blame for Marshall for thinking it wasn’t real, considering how messed up he was when it first happened. I know that if I was in his situation I most likely wouldn’t believe it either. How could anyone believe when someone appears in a dream, or what someone else believes it’s a dream. I could tell when the two of them established a bond, a friendship that soon turned into much more. I wished that Waverly realized that before she did. I wish she didn’t care of what her friends thought about it. I know that she loved him, and at first it felt like she was in denial about whole thing. That made their story realistic, that the two of them didn’t jump into a relationship right from start. It took time to develop, and not without their problems. Of course what love story doesn’t have some type of issues? I loved interaction between Marshall and Waverly, every time you found yourself wondering what would happen next.

PLACES NO ONE KNOWS wasn’t only a love story. It dealt with friendships, true meaning of friendships, acceptance, letting go and hope. At least that’s the message that I seemed to get while reading the novel. The one character I seemed to have love/ hate relationship with was Maribeth. There were moments I did like her, but most of time I couldn’t stand her, I disliked how she treated Waverly most of time, as if she was the boss of her, like she expected for her to do everything she asked. What she did to her at the end, that was unforgettable, you don’t do that to your best friend. Autumn acted more like her friend that Maribeth, she doesn’t need a friend like her. She held her back from doing what she wanted to do. She wasn’t a real friend. Cover, that was, I almost have no words how stunning it is. I know if anyone comes across, they would be curious about it, they would pick up the book for the cover alone. It’s mysterious, and the colors stand out. The way two of them reaching for one another will have you wondering about the story itself by looking at the photograph.

Breathtaking, magical, mysterious love story..
