Goodreads description:
Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.


Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder. The setting is Arkwell.

Then Eli’s dream comes true.

Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.

Mindee Arnett lives on a horse farm in Ohio with her husband, two kids, a couple of dogs, and an inappropriate number of cats. She’s addicted to jumping horses and telling tales of magic, the macabre, and outer space. She has far more dreams than nightmares.

When Eli comes to the magickind-only academy and first enters the cafeteria:
Eli was the true weirdo here. He was one hundred percent ordinary. Talk about being a disadvantaged student.
Dusty and her mom:
"You are so stubborn." Moira shook her head. Encouraged by her frustration, I added, "You forgot rebellious and smart-aleck."
She glowered at me for a second, then grinned. "I know. I'd expect nothing less from my daughter."
The sheriff upon hearing one of Dusty's excuses:
"I expected a little more originality from Moira's daughter."
"Yeah, well, the dog ate my notebook with all my good excuses."
A bit of trivia:
Most  magickind teenagers were fanatics about ordinary pop culture. Almost everybody was a Comic-Con-attending, play-dress-up fan boy. And he had the nerve to make fun of me. Go figure.
About Nightmares:
"That's one reason why the Magi only want you to feed every other week. A fully charged Nightmare can do whatever they want inside a dream. Here, we're like gods."
