As they leave Curulea, the land of blue eyes who can read minds, they travel onto Veridia the land of green eyes, where all the citizens are intensely connected to all wildlife. It is a world like none of the other books writer Veronica R. Tabares' has written, and fits fantastically to the other adventures she has her characters encounter along the way in their strange yet fascinating journey.
Veridia brings Tricia, Cathy, and Kathy, Vickie's best friends set their minds on finding a way to get Vickie back to them by dream travel. They are very focused on their goal and despite any dangers they might encounter are determined to prevail in their task! So much so that Tricia becomes stuck within the dream world as well posing yet another problem for the girls, how to release Tricia so they can find Vickie and take her back home where she belongs. Throughout the book, the reader sees the friendships of these girls grow tighter and tighter and leaves the reader with a feeling of satisfaction that these young girls have learned something many adults struggle with, the importance of friendship.
When Tricia is trapped, she too falls into a deep coma in her real world, leaving those who stand by her side, clueless as to what has happened, wondering if this could be part of a larger picture for both Vickie and Tricia. On the surface, everyone tries to bring Vickie and Tricia back but the reader knows that until they can escape the dream world, there is little hope of them returning.Read more ›
Now that Tricia is trapped, she has not yet figured out exactly what has happened is exactly what occurred to Vickie, and that there is more going on with her physical being. However, being the personality she is, she does not give up trying to get out of the `dream house' she is stuck in.
Back at home, Vickie's mother has connected with the one person that could help her and believe her regarding her daughter's disappearance. She finally has some hope to recover her lost daughter. Vickie's other two friends make the choice to discipline themselves to not just help the two friends, but themselves as they fear they can be next to suffer what they have witnessed with their group. However, as they practice `dream travel', they encounter Rhonda at the very `dream house' they expect to find their friend! The three then decide it would be best to work together to find their missing loved ones.Read more ›
The real part is the key these characters are so real by the end of the series you feel like you have a personal investment in all of them. The inter dynamics of the relationship have a place to shine in this the final book of the series. I think what I liked best is unlike some series the characters kept growing and in different ways.
The sum of this book more than equals it's individual parts it does what good books do for kids makes them realize that dreams are possible and they need to work at it with all they have. Loved this series am releasing to my granddaughters kindle as soon as I'm done with this review. She is going to love it.
Just want to note if you have not yet read book one and two read them first. You don't have to but you sure will lose a lot of the good stuff by not knowing the backstory because Author Veronica R Tabares does not drag out the front of the book with a bunch of narrative rather jumps right back into the action . . . love that.
