Dream Snatcher (City of Crows)
BUY IT ON:
They say the crash is an accident. They lie.
Ella Dean is a sixteen-year-old girl with a big dream: scoring a spot at Julliard to pursue her passion for piano.
But when a mysterious attack by an unknown assailant kills Ella's mother, an assistant district attorney, and leaves Ella hospital bound for months, her life's dream is ripped out from under her feet.
Six months later, a much-altered Ella stumbles upon a clue to the truth about her mother's murder, and inadvertently sets off a series of events that will redefine her future forever.
Dream Snatcher is a prequel to the City of Crows series, though it can be read as a stand-alone story.
