Profile Picture

Dream Smashers is a book about hope. Autumn Winters lives in the town of Cultus, Washington. Cultus is known for its great access to methamphetamine, which is also why Autumn lives with her grandmother. Autumn was taken away from her mother when she was a baby because of her meth addiction and alcoholism. Autumn hopes for her mom to just leave her alone so she can start a new, fresh, freer life. Then Evan, the blind date, enters her life. Evan is a Godsend literally; he's a church-going-volunteering- marathon- running-saint. Evan starts to change the way Autumn thinks.
