Waiting on Wednesday: The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
This week's pick:
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
Release Date - 3/5/2013
Publisher - Tor Teen
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.
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.
   Okay. This one just sounds like all kinds of epic. A supernatural boarding school? Win. Someone that creeps into people's nightmares? Win. Murder mystery? Total win! This book sounds a lot like Slide by Jill Hathaway but also very different and unique. I love mysteries that have a paranormal element to them, and novels involving dreams are generally enjoyable too.
I love the design on this cover!  It looks very whimsical with the dove and trees. And I love the purple coloring! This is definitely going to be one I'm going to be pining for!
