Book Review : When Dreams Come True

Author : Rebecca Emin
4 stars

The first time I spotted this book was when the author, Rebecca Emin, was hosting a giveaway. I didn't win it but Rebecca offered to send a copy to me in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Rebecca! :)

So, here we go!

When Dreams Come True is about a thirteen year old girl, Charlotte or nicknamed, Charlie. She's a bit tomboyish. Her two best friends since she was a little girl are two boys, Max and Toby. But when Charlie was in level Nine, she met a girl, Allie, and they become friends.

Before meeting Allie, Charlie regards boys only as friends. But all changed after Allie. Allie seems to be obsessed about boys. First, she told Charlie about Jack, the older boy she had a crush on, who took the same bus with them everyday. Then, she changed her mind and announced to Charlie that she liked Toby! It didn't help when Charlie realized that Toby didn't share the same feeling.

Charlie knew then that nothing would ever be the same again. She didn’t understand about girls and this ‘crush’ thing over boys. But then, to her horror, she started to dream about Jack!

Later on, the story progresses with a bit of a mystery. Charlie’s beloved Aunt Jenny fell ill and her parents decided to take care of her. Charlie was temporarily move to Allie's house. And then she got the chance to spend weekends on her aunt's country estate while her aunt was hospitalized. Here, Charlie discovered a family secret, something important about her dear aunt and parents. Something which could change her aunt’s life, if only Charlie could do something about it!

When Dreams Come True is a nice book, one I would recommend for teenagers. At first, I have my doubt. I thought, I wouldn't enjoy it much. I mean, it's been a long long time since I was a teenager *lol but I'm glad I was wrong. It's a simple yet enjoyable book for young readers. It relates with some issues most teenagers are facing in their lives. Issues like friendship, family, having a crush toward a boy/girl, dating etc.

I like the way Ms. Emin described the interaction between Charlie and her Mum and Dad. They seem close. These days, teenagers tend to shy away from their parents. I’m glad this book shows otherwise. And the way the story was wrapped up is also satisfying.
