Dream Boy by Mary Crockett & Madelyn Rosenburg, Book Trailer Reveal

I'm so excited to team up with SourceBooks to reveal the book trailer for DREAM BOY by Mary Crockett & Madelyn Rosenberg, a book who's cover we revealed here. Before I share the trailer with you, here's a little bit about the book.


 In this romantic contemporary fantasy, American teen-hood meets mystic folklore.

Like the small southern town where it's set, Dream Boy is edged by wilderness, mysticism and mystery. The bottle tree on the cover perfectly captures the novel's mix of dream and nightmare.

So what is a bottle tree?

Simply put, it's an ancient folk-magic practice intended to capture evil spirits. Southerners adapted the tradition—outfitting tree limbs with colored bottles.

In Dream Boy, the bottle tree creates a connection point between the real world and what lies beyond.
