Frankly speaking, even if Karen can be a real pain in the neck at times, I understood her more. In fact, seeing her home environment and everything she had to endure, I would have understood it better if she was the one who daydreams more. I wouldn't have been able to finish the book without her character. The reason why I kept going was because I wanted to get to know her more. And deep inside I was hoping that someone would come and do that for her. That's why I'm really looking forward to more of her and Craig. I don't know if the next book have that. I hope the next one will be about her. But seeing that Mark (the main guy) and Debbie hasn't progressed that much from this book, it might be just a hopeful dream for now.
it's probably because I'm partly obsessive and compulsive about school that's why it's hard for me to understand Debbie. I'm not sure if I can still stand reading about her daydreaming. Honestly, it's awkward.Read more ›
Dream World is a story told from the perspective of several adolescents as they journey through life. The author does an excellent job of “capturing” moments in each of their lives as they journey through life’s moments.
Initially, I had a hard time following the story because the storyline transitions from one character to another but as I read further into the book, I understood it better because all of their lives intertwine in one aspect or another.
Debbie, the main character, daydreams a lot and it sometimes helps her with what she is going through or it helps her get in trouble. She often dreams about the object of her daydreams as well. Karen, Debbie’s old best friend, is the epitome of what a mean girl is. Mark is the American boy who moves to the U.K. and captures the heart of all the girls when he only has eyes for one.
The author leaves the book as a cliffhanger and I immediately wanted to open the next book on my Kindle and start reading but, first, I had to stop myself and write this review.

Feeling as though she is to blame for her mother’s death, Debbie prefers to live in her dream world, safe within the arms of her TV crush. She and her family face that first year without the backbone of their family with tears and each other. Meanwhile, back at school, Debbie is moving on with classes, her best friend, mean girls, and the new boy in school.
This is a wonderful visit to the world of students in about the 8th and 9th grades. First crush, first kiss, and first bras, while dealing with the confusions of family, friends, and the opposite sex. Though this book stands well on its own, there is a definite opening for more books making this a series.
This book is also a great look into the emotions of dealing with sudden and horrific loss. Because her mother was on the way to pick Debbie up from a day of swimming, she feels as though she is to blame for the car crash that killed her mother, a crash that she witnessed happening. That first year is something for which you cannot prepare yourself. I know, for myself, I was a non-functioning member of society for several years after the loss of my child. Grief is hard, but this book approaches it with empathy, sympathy, and respect.
My only complaint and I did not hold this against the author was the difference in British and American English. In my last review, I mentioned that I needed some assistance with reading British English. In this book, it is my opinion that the author needs some assistance with her American English.Read more ›
