Blue is for Nightmares by Laurie Faria Stolarz

A long delayed Review, enough time had to pass to get over the scare factor of this series.

Blue is for Nightmares carries you on an adventure through the mind of Stacy Brown, a teen with secrets whom also practices witch craft. Her dreams or "Nightmares" tend to foreshadow events yet to come. When her dreams begin to depict the death of her friend Drea whom is receiving suspicious e-mails, it becomes Stacy's responsibility to save her friend. And when she goes missing and another student is mistakenly murdered she needs all the strength her witch craft and herself can supply to make it out safely.

Laurie's use of the characters own strength as oppose to letting the magic be the hero allows this to be a gripping series. The dark story and subtle humor allows some room to breath, but this is definitely one to read with the lights on.

The order for this Series is (Highly recommended it is read in order.)
1) Blue is for Nightmares
2) White is for Magic
3) Silver is for Secrets
4) Red is for remembrance
