The Waking: Dreams of the Dead by Thomas Randall
A Japanese teenager leaves her boyfriend’s house with a skip in her step… only to be brutally murdered by the mean soccer girls at her school. Why did they kill her? That’s what Kara, an American student who starts at the school attempts to uncover as the school year progresses. She makes friends with Sakura, the dead girl’s sister, and sees something strange at the memorial shrine built in the girl’s honor. When the soccer girls start dying one by one, and no can really explain how or why, Kara starts realizing that the bizarre and horrific dreams she’s having are the same ones haunting the soccer girls. When whatever is killing them finishes, Kara realizes she’ll be the last victim.
