The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett is about Dusty Everhart, a Nightmare who feeds off people's dreams. One night, she is feeding off a boy that she knows and sees that he's dreaming about a murder that takes place at Dusty's school for the magickind. When the murder the boy, whose name is Eli, dreams about actually happens, he and Dusty must join forces to catch the killer and keep him from killing again.
While there wasn't much background given on what was going on, the plot was easy to follow and actually didn't really require a backstory about the magickind. Dusty, Eli, and their friends were very relatable, realistic characters and the plot was different and awesome. While it wrapped up well and doesn't really require a sequel, there are several elements in the story that can definitely use a sequel.
