* *   Reviewed by Lyn Seippel

Before the school year began, fifteen-year-old Claire Voyante's grandmother gave her an onyx and ivory cameo. Since then, her ever-blossoming psychic abilities have shown themselves in unusual black and white dreams that foretell the future. In Claire's first adventure, Dream Girl, her talents helped solve some dangerous problems for her new friend Becca Shuttleworth and her wealthy, socialite family.

Claire returns in her second psychic mystery, Dream Life. This one involves a secret society and a mysterious enemy. After a peaceful stretch of time with no worries, Claire is excited that her dreams are back. She's counting on them to tell her whether there's risk for those around her, but it isn't just her friends who are in danger. Her own life could be at stake.

Claire wonders why Becca has been avoiding her. She never seems to have time to hang out with Claire but has plenty of time to spend with her old prep school friends. Claire knows she must keep the cameo and her psychic talent secret even from Becca and Becca's brother Andy. Andy and Claire are beginning a budding romance, unknown to Becca.

Readers will enjoy watching Claire grow into her not-so-typical psychic talent as she solves mysteries involving secret societies, socialites and New York City landmarks.
