Daydream’s Daughter, Nightmare’s Friend by Nonnie Jules

Daydream’s Daughter, Nightmare’s Friend by Nonnie Jules is a very powerful story of abuse and its consequences. The style of writing reminds me a little of memoirs like Angela’s Ashes, but the author assures us it’s a work of fiction. If so, then it’s a very compelling work.

Maiya is the central character, a girl from the wrong side of town; an innocent young girl, but that innocence is taken away in the most brutal way possible. A disinterested alcoholic mother and a too interested manipulative step-father spark the fuse that will ignite events.

Well written with good characterisation you feel you’re drawn in to the story, often in an uncomfortable way, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t read it – more so that you should.

Congratulations must go to the author for a very strong first novel.
