{Blog Tour: Dream Cast + Giveaway} Lost In Thought - By Cara Bertand


Sententia #1
Release Date: April 25th 2014
Publisher: Luminis Books

Perfect for readers who love books and series such as Vampire Academy, Spellbound, and Sweet Peril, Lost in Thought is a sure winner for young adult readers interested in the paranormal, romance, and action-packed twists

Lainey Young has a secret: she’s going crazy. Everyone else thinks she ha
s severe migraines from stress and exhaustion. What she really has are visions of how people died—or are going to die. Not that she tells anyone that. At age 16, she prefers keeping her crazy to herself. When doctors insist she needs a new and stable environment to recover, Lainey’s game to spend two years at a private New England boarding school. She doesn’t really think it will cure her problem, and she’s half right. There is no cure, but as she discovers, she’s not actually crazy. Almost everyone at Northbrook Academy has a secret too. Half the students and nearly all the staff are members of the Sententia, a hidden society of the psychically gifted. A vision of another student’s impending death confirms Lainey is one of them. She’d like to return the crappy gift of divining deaths with only a touch, but enjoys spending time with Carter Penrose—recent Academy graduate and resident school crush—while learning to control it. Lainey’s finally getting comfortable with her ability, and with Carter, when they uncover her true Sententia heritage. Now she has a real secret. Once it’s spilled, she’ll be forced to forget protecting secrets and start protecting herself.


Dreamcasting was fun, but hard! I don’t watch a whole lot of TV/movies that aren’t cartoons anymore and I basically invented all the characters but Carter in my head, so it was a challenge for me to find even semi-famous people who fit.
So here goes—how’d I do? I’d love to hear reader suggestions.

Lainey: A young Jennifer Connelly with a little bit of Sophia Bush thrown in is how I imagined her. She’s not tall, but I do like the look of Adelaide Kane from Reign.

Carter: is actually inspired by a handsome young man who cashiered at, well, mylocalliquorstore.  In a pinch, model Jesse Shannon (whose look is unique and incredibly versatile) couldmake a nice Carter. Assuming, of course, he could act.

Amy: She’s too small, but lighten her hair and Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars could make a cute Amy.
Or! I just saw Vampire Academy and thought Sarah Hyland might be perfect.

Caleb: I bet Freddie Highmore could be a good Caleb.
Or maybe Callan McAuliffe.

Alexis: I’m obsessed with Pitch Perfect, and actually think Alexis Knapp could be a good Alexis. Same name and everything :)

Or maybe Naya Rivera. She’d probably be great.

Jenna: Who’s a tiny blond and can do sweet, innocent, and more? I guess Elle Fanning if no one else.
Constance Stewart: I mean, we’re dream-casting, right? So Michelle Obama. She’d be amazing. She is amazing. Smart, polished, and fierce as hell. She’s actually even tall enough. 

Tessa Espinosa: There’s probably no more dream-castable actress of Mexican descent than Salma Hayak.
