Gone is the last book in Lisa McMann's Dream Catcher trilogy.
Things should be great for Janie- she has graduated from high school and is spending her summer with Cabel, the guy she's totally in love with. But deep down she's panicking about how she's going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people's dreams is really starting to take its toll. Things get even more complicated when she meets her father for the very first time- and he's in a coma. As Janie uncovers his secret past, she begins to realize that the choice thought she had has more dire consequence than she ever imagined.
1. As the last book, I expected more from this book than the first two, but McMann disappointed with this one. While interesting to learn the story of Janie's father, I felt the book did not do a whole lot for the story line as a whole. Plus, I felt Janie and Cabel's relationship, which is my favorite part of these books, really got pushed to the wayside.
2. In the last book, I got the impression the Janie was learning to open up about her feelings and worries with both Cabel and the Captain, but this book had Janie taking backwards steps in character progress. She becomes secretive about what she is doing and what is going on with her dad.
3. The ending did nothing for me. I finished the book going that was it? I felt like there should have been a little more, or a epilogue on what happens to Janie and Cabel.
4. Still don't like the style in which McMann lays out the story.
