When Dreams Come True

Charlie is happiest when biking with Max and Toby, or watching films with Allie. But when Charlie reaches year nine (age 13), everything begins to change. As her friends develop new interests, Charlie’s dreams become more frequent and vivid, and a family crisis tears her away from her friends. How will Charlie react when old family secrets are revealed? Will her life change completely when some of her dreams start to come true?

I have little insight into the minds of young girls (or older ones for that matter, when I think about it!) but fortunately my friend Rebecca Emin does and she writes stories for them.

When Dreams Come True’ is launched today (Monday 28th May). Rebecca is one of my oldest Twitter friends and I’m happy to say a ‘real life’ one now as we managed to meet up in Oxford a couple of weeks ago at the National Flash Fiction Day ‘Flash Slam’ event. This is her second book. Her first ‘New Beginnings’ proved a great hit with the kids of friends (also solving the difficult problem of finding suitable presents). Knowing Rebecca, there will be giveaways and fun things to mark the occasion on her Facebook page and on her blog.

I’m delighted to have solved my presents dilemma once again. I’ve read an advanced copy and whilst the subject matter isn’t quite my normal thing, I can say that this is a very well written and paced read for children. Perfect for those summer holidays, should summer decide to turn up on schedule this year.

The book’s available through all good virtual bookstores in paperback and ebookkindlynookthing versions.
