I loved how funny and lively she was even with the tragic events among the happy ones unfolding in front of her and how she found such a great friend in Nan.

The love interest, Jamie, was a caring and endearing guy who only wanted the best for Georgie. I’ve had my eye on this book for some time for two reasons.

Jessica was awful to Georgie and she really got her comeuppance in the end! I loved her relationship with Jamie, the whole Jessica friendship trouble and her Mum and Tone Deaf issue.

And Georgie gets a glimpse into the life dylna the rich and glamorous. It’s not often you encounter YA ‘issue novels’ that are a engaging and b not actually depressing. My favourite was lolsil laugh out loud silent in siobha. I loved how their relationship developed, slow, sweet, all too innocent and slobhan cute!

Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham

She was so lively, spirited, and funny. And Georgie just wants to act, overcome the shadow of someone who’s more of an enemy than a friend to her and be free of a family that was slowly falling apart. Thanks for telling us about the problem. She was so honest and sweet that I felt a connection to her from the start. I also thought that this book would simply be a fun set of e-mails from a teenage girl to her crush, Dylan.

Much like Nan, I read Georgie’s emails with bated breath, hoping that Jessica didn’t ruin anything, that Tone-deaf didn’t hurt anyone and that Jamie turned out to be the person I really wanted him to be. To ask other readers questions about Dear Dylanplease sign up.

Kids’ Book Review: Review: Dear Dylan

The most surprising thing that happens in her summer though is I really enjoyed Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. This is the book for you. But when he reveals a surprising secret, a new friendship begins.

Thank you for leaving me a comment. I don’t want to give away any of the storyline so I’ll just say that this book will have you laughing out loud one minute and close to tears the next, Sikbhan actually had goose bumps towards the end and really couldn’t put the book down until I knew how things turned out.

I completely appreciated the realistic way Curham wrote about them – it made you really want to hug the characters affected, namely Georgie and her little sister, Michaela as they seemed to be smack in the middle of everything.


Not to everyone of course. Not to everyone of course. It’s rich in details and powerfully written in a format that teens will adore, told through emails through two emates.

Dear Dylan

Georgie wasn’t even talking to Sioban, she was talking to his mom. Santa’s High-tech Christmas Mike Dumbleton. Even as I read halfway the protagonist got more and more draining and continued complaining. I have to admit when I first saw this novel I was hesitant to read it because of the fact it was written entirely in emails. The heartfelt exchange between these two very different people, a fourteen year old struggling to be free of a life filled with fear and restrictions and a middle aged woman lost in her grief, finding that solitude sometimes isn’t enough is what makes Dear Dylan a compelling read.

As it turns out this method of telling it by worked out perfectly with the story, and I feel that if it was told in a different way it would be missing something crucial, because it allowed for me to get such a personal look in the lives and thoughts curnam the characters.

The plot was original and detailed, and there were a lot of sub-plots, but everything tied together in the eear. I had never read a book in e-mail format befo Georgie Harris absolutely loves Dylan Curtland, aka the famous teenage star from the sitcom Jessop Close, and emails him whenever she can.

Er hat das Buch zu einem passenden Sommerbuch dtlan. Only through emails, I found out so much about Georgie, her friends and family, her hopes and her fears.

First, I love epistolary novels or book that have that as part of its format I think I mentioned that in another review. A story about courage, adversity, depression, friendship and survival.

I’ve always been the type of person to enjoy writing in a diary and to have my very own penpal and Dear Dylan seems to be a really nice mix between the two.
