The Nightmare Affair is a pretty typical YA contemporary fantasy story. The main character, Dusty, is a typical sarcastic teenager. The mystery of the story is a typical, predictable mystery. The romance in the book is a typical YA girl-has-two-boys-to-choose-between trope.

It's a fun, quick read that isn't anything terribly original (except the Nightmare concept, which was neat), but has some witty moments. My one complaint is Dusty's constant, grating sarcasm (negativity is wearying, and defensive negativity aimed at people who are trying to support you isn't endearingly hip, it's churlish).

I'd recommend it for fans of lightweight YA, especially contemporary fantasy ones.
