Recently I read Isabel Ashdown's Hurry Up and Wait, which is a coming of age story set in 1980s Britain. It really resonated with me not just because of the reality of the characters but also as I was a teenager at this time in a small town much like the one in the book, minus the sea. The fashion, food and music references were spot on but what really struck me was how many dreams featured in the story. To start with I thought it was too many but then I went away and thought about it and realised that people probably do remember their dreams that often. I do.
