Vande Velde, Vivian. Witch dreams

Vande Velde, Vivian. Witch dreams.Marshall Cavendish, 2005 [0-7614-5235-4]
Nyssa is a sixteen year old orphan girl who can see other peoples dreams. The people of her medieval town would not take well to this if they knew - they would brand her a witch. Nyssa always assumed she knew who killed her parents but he was from a rich family and he disappeared soon after he was declared innocent. Suddenly he reappears in town and she wants to make sure he is the guilty one by reading his dreams. She sees strange things in this young man's dream which will turn her life around. Vande Velde writes good tales (about witchcraft, vampires, ghosts, etc) that kids want to read and are not too over the top for me to feel uncomfortable having in my middle school library. Most of her books are always off my shelves and I am sure this 120 page one will be no different
