From Readers' Favorite:
Can Dreams Come True? by Krysten Lindsay Hager is a teenage novel that covers all the issues faced by today's adolescents. I loved the way the author has created such a strong and unique character in Cecily. She shows a mature attitude which is rare in this genre of novel. Her feelings of low self-esteem and the development of the relationship with Andrew are real and heart-warming. There are some hysterically funny moments in the story too. The other characters are also believable, and the way young girls interact and speak to each other is very realistic. The plot moves forward constantly with conflict perfectly placed to keep you engaged. The reality of how rumours and jealousy can cause damage to a person is effectively shown within the story. A wonderful and captivating teenage love story.
