Charlie is happiest when biking with Max and Toby, or watching films with Allie. But when Charlie reaches year nine, everything begins to change. As her friends develop new interests, Charlie's dreams become more frequent and vivid, and a family crisis tears her away from her friends. How will Charlie react when old family secrets are revealed? Will her life change completely as some of her dreams start to come true?

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping book 1 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "When dreams come true". It is very gripping! When I was bored I always knew that reading this book will always kill off loads of time. I would rate "When dreams come true" 5 star and I am certain I will read more of Rebecca Emin's spectacular books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 23 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has been the best book I've ever read. Since I don't read that much it's surprising how great I found this book. I wish I could find a book as good as this one

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter gives it 5 STARS! 28 Jun 2012
This review consists of two parts: 1. My daughter's review (she's 9) and 2. My review (the Mom). These are excerpts. For the full review visit us at Mother Daughter Book Reviews.


What I liked and disliked about it:

I was really excited to get this book from the author. And right from the start I really loved reading it. There is a picture of Charlie on the front cover of the book. Charlie looks just like my friend Mae.

I thought the dreams that Charlie had were freaky. Some of the dreams I have are freaky also. I liked that Charlie's dad told her that her aunt had already died once. It made the book mysterious! I liked that some of her dreams sounded like they were real but they were actually dreams.

It was odd to read about kids that are way older than me and doing things older girls and boys do like kissing each other, but it didn't really bother me to read about it.

My bottom line:

This book is my favorite book right now. I would recommend it to girls 9 years and older.


What I liked and disliked about it:

Along with my daughter, I was also very excited to read this book. There is something simply compelling about the cover photo of the girl (not just that I also think she looks like my friend's daughter). I just love that photo!

My daughter read the book first and just loved it. It's all she could talk about the morning after reading it at bedtime. She sincerely enjoyed it and that just made me want to read it even more. I must admit that I was a bit surprised when I finally did get to it. This book describes the inner workings of a teenage girl's mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 28 May 2012
When Dreams Come True is a delightful,poignant read and this is what my thirteen year old daughter said about it:

"When I first started reading this book I read three chapters quicker than I have any other book, it hooked me in instantly because it sounded like my life crazy yet cool and recommended it to all my friends the day I started reading it. I'm sure I will read this again and hope to read more from Rebecca Emin.

I rate this book five stars because it hooked me in straight away and I loved it thank you Rebecca Emin."

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of everything. 14 May 2012
By cassam
Format:Kindle Edition
I am not going to give away any more of the story than you have already read except to say,secrets,dreams,ponies, mystery and young love all feature here. Part of the book reminded me of Enid Blyton's Secret Seven stories but much more up to date.I think its a story which every young girl would love to read and probably dream about. I had a tear in my eye at the end. I think a sequel is definately called for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growing up 9 May 2012
The title itself made me remember some of my dreams that came true, roundabout the same age as that of the heroin, Charlie. Perhaps it is something that often happens through the teenage years?

The story flows well, and the settings come alive as you read. It's like a two-sided adventure, of growing up and becoming a young woman and of the secret behind the tapestry in Charlie's Aunty Jenny's house. Rebecca flung us a few red herrings, with me thinking Aunty Jenny was an old maiden aunt at one stage, until the penny dropped and I realised that she was actually Charlie's father's sister. Good one! The dreams likewise. I didn't expect ??? (I don't want to give the story away) to be the one to win her heart in the end. It's the kind of story that I would have read as a teenager, and wanted a sequel to, too (hint!). Girls of that age like a teeny bit of romance, and - -looking back a very long way now - it's good to read that other girls feel like you do.

A great story, very well written! I really enjoyed reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting! 30 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Charlie is forced to go stay at her Aunt's house when she falls ill and her parents aren't able to take her home. Whilst she's there she discovers a secret passageway, has a lovely time with her two friends and even gains a new skill!

When I was offered the chance to read this book, I was entering exam period at college and didn't expect to have a lot of time to read. In the same breath, I didn't expect to read it all in one sitting! It was addicting and lovely. Charlie herself is a great character, developed well.

The story was a breath of fresh air as there was no supernatual creatures causing mayhem... there were no murderous criminals... It was just a normal girl dealing with normal girl problems. I really enjoyed it and will happily read it again!

Loved it.
