I’m very interested in different writing styles and was intrigued as to how this would work.
But all is not what it seems in the faceless world of e-mails Young Georgie likes making up words, often by combining two words together, which is an indication not only of her age, but of her creative personality. It’s just that I was watching Oprah yesterday and she said we should all say we love each other a whole lot more.
Overall, an enjoyable read with great content. But the thing is, sometimes when Dylann watch you on TV, I feel as if you’re talking just to me and it makes me feel less alone. I needn’t have worried. Mima Tipper rated it it was amazing Jan 17, But the emails, and Siobhan’s heartfelt and a little bit childish writing made Georgie and all those she described come to life.
All versions of this book ISBN: An amazing teenage story of growing up and standing up for yourself. The story really gripped me; Georgie going to her drama workshop, her turbulent friendship xurham her best friend, her first romance and the most interesting aspect of the story; domestic violence. This is fiction, but I think it was quite realistic, with both characters having their hesitations regarding an online friendship.
The story is mainly about Georgie whose father has died and her mum has remarried to a violent man. Lili rated it it was amazing Oct 07, The best thing about Georgie was how brave she was. curhm
Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham
Thank you for leaving me a comment. Poignant, uplifting and funny, with a truly authentic young teen voice, this is an absorbing tale about never giving up on your dreams, no matter how tough life gets.
It’s got stories about crushes, the joy of acting, the fear of a cruel stepfather and a mother too weak and drunk to protect her daughters, an up close and personal look into what goes on into the life of a celebrity mom, her discovery that life has more to offer than just taking walks on the beach and looking back at the times she was most happy.
She is normal was was wonderful – not a show off cool kid or a complete loser.
Don’t have a Kindle? Dear Dylan was an emotional and original novel and I’m so glad I had this opportunity to read it! I was so angry and frustrated when I read what he did.
Siobhan Curham is a great writer, and the email format made me become that much more attached to the main characters.
I really admired Georgie who was desperate to have the normal life of a teenager that all her friends seemed to have but had to deal with looking after her little sister, as well as coping with an angry step-dad.
