Nadia's Tears, by Julie C. Gilbert
2013, 260p, YA Science Fiction
My Rating=4 Stars
Source: Received a copy from the author for an honest review

Jillian must enter Nadia's dreams to wake her from a mysterious coma. In Nadia's dreams, Jillian meets several versions of her sister, including the elegant Queen Elena, fierce Naidine, and heartbroken Nadie. Meanwhile, Danielle must save her friend Christy from making choices that could get them both killed.

This is the second book in this series. Go here to learn more about the first book,  Ashlynn's Dreams, and read my thoughts on it. 

In the first book, Jillian and Danielle were kidnapped and they've now returned home. Jillian needs to go back, though, to help Nadia but there's no way her mother will allow her to do that. With Danielle's help, she comes up with a plan to make that happen. Danielle stays behind this time to face everyone's wrath about what happened and to help her friend Christy, who is involved in something dangerous.

This book started out a little slow for me and took me a while to get into it. At times, I was a little confused about what was going on. It did pick up and got very interesting. I enjoyed learning more about Jillian's other family and there are plenty more to learn about. 

Again, it's written through letters and  journal entries and it's mostly Jillian and Danielle. There are some new characters that we hear from a little bit as well. There are some tough issues that these books deal with and they are both thought-provoking. There's still a lot to discover about the characters and I'm excited to read the next book, Malia's Miracles!

Julie is a high school chemistry teacher who spends all summer writing. Her stories tend to fall in YA, YA sci-fi, sci-fi, or Christian mystery genres though on a challenge from a friend, she's also attempted YA paranormal.

She enjoys warm (not hot) weather, tea, coffee, reading, writing, teaching, and listening to books on CD.
