Novel #1 Update: Sketch/blueprint of "The Facility"in the book

I wanted to post the blueprint of the "Facility" where a significant part of the novel takes place. I actually sketched it before I wrote this section.  I knew I wouldn't be as descriptive in the novel if I didn't.  I wanted to make sure the experience of the characters in the "Facility"  was rich and engrossing for the reader.  I may include this in the complete novel as reference for the reader as well.  Want to thank my Dad ( architectural designer) for my artistic ability. Looking back;  many, many days watching Dad draft were a treasured gift that I can finally use as a writer to share the visual perspective of a place I have created in my novel.  Love you Dad.

So Venessa, What is your book about? Novel No.1: Synopsis Finally done!

I am finally posting the synopsis of my first novel.  I am half  done with the first draft of the first book of a series of books.  The synopsis is supposed to be the hook that gets the reader interested. So does this do the job?  Let me know what you think!

Novel #1 Synopsis
Jesca Gershon, both driven and independent has a well-laid plan; part-time job at the local book shop in town and entering her sophmore year at Bernau University in Gainesville, Georgia.
 Conversely, Jesca's juvenile nightmares have returned but with more frequency, vividness and terror.  Not only does the reoccurring fright haunt her sleep with dark, looming auras and distorted reality, the dream realm also manifests unnatural physical and mental abilities seemingly for protection. But from what?
 Her dream world begins to seep into the real world, with waking hour appearances of stalking dark figures tracking Jesca, passerbys with twisted and evil faces, and the acute ability of honing in on danger and unsavory characters. She is being pulled into physical and mental chaos.  At the peak of what could be Jesca's breaking point, she confides in her trusted professor, Ezra Kahn. Unforeseen, Ezra unleashes upon Jesca  an  irrevocable role, thus catapulting her into a slant of this world she would have never considered until now.
Jesca begins a quest involving personal growth, friendship, trust, love, leaps of faith, and the belief of her greater purpose in one world within a universe that is not alone.  A world that is teetering on the edge of man's unquenched need for control and power conceiving universal disproportion that could destroy our existence all together.
