The Dreaming, Volume 1 by Queenie Chan (2005)

Description: When twin sisters Amber and Jeanie are accepted into an exclusive Australian boarding school, their future looks bright. But the school’s halls harbor a terrible secret: students have been known to wander into the surrounding bushlands and vanish… without a trace! No one knows where they went-or why. Buts as Amber and Jeanie are about to learn, the key to the school’s dark past may lie in the world of their dreams…

Review: This was a most interesting manga. First of all, it was set in Australia in the bush. Not only is the location different from most manga, but the story too was different. It was eerie, but vastly fascinating. Basically, the story revolves around mysterious disappearances at a boarding school in the middle of nowhere. I did guess some elements, but I really am most interested to see where this story goes.

Score: 4 out of 5
