Julie Sharp rated it it was amazing Mar 15, Bethany rated it it cufham amazing Aug 03, 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. The very element that endangers the whole exercise is also what makes the novel’s original and so engaging in the first place. Okay, this book is bloody awesome.

Secondly I had read that it was all written in the form of emails between the main characters. Her mother was stuck in an abusive relationship and had no time for Georgie.

That’s all I really have to say. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Siobhan Curham is a great writer, and the email format made me become that much more attached to the main characters.

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.

Lastly, Siobhan’s writing proved to be well done in this novel because she always provided to dig a little deeper into each character, giving the reader an even better understanding to them.

With great, admirable characters, a sweet, adorable romance and a depth which gives real emotional meaning to the story, Dear Dylan is a book I certainly recommend. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Review posted at Amaterasu Reads The beauty of technology is it bridges people no matter where they are.

So, yes, the whole format of this book is definitely worth mentioning. This was a self-publishing YA phenomenon in and winner of the above award beating the likes of Julia Donaldson and Bali Rai. Not to everyone of course. It’s so honest and believable that I just can’t seem to stop reading.

Through I’ve had my eye on this book for some time for two reasons. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. 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, I actually had goose bumps towards the end and really couldn’t put the book down until I knew how things turned out. Nov 30, Roxane rated it really liked it Shelves: And I loved her! As you get to know her you can’t help but like her and hope that her dreams come true.

At last she has someone who really gets her, someone who really wants to help.

Dear Dylan: Siobhan Curham: : Books

What kind of horrible physco deliberately organises to go out somewhere ”as a family” on the very day of their daughters performance, so she has to miss out on a trip and no-one can watch her debut performance?!


And talking about Nan, I adored her as well. Both Nan and Cugham got each other through tough times, even those dreadful, scary ones.

In Dear Dylan, she explores a uniquely adolescent realm that many parents today find insidious and incomprehensible — online social networking.

I just thought the book was great. All in all I think this book was good, but I deear think I’d be reading it again for a while. When I first started reading the story I was a little skeptical as I thought the relationship between her and Nancy was a little weird. As it turns out, it’s not actually Dylan that is reply I picked this book up as I really like cruham the cover and the title – they’re simple and fun.

A dream come true.

Want to Read saving…. I hope you love this book as much as I do. She seemed to be having a hard time living with Tone-Deaf but I don’t blame her. The most surprising thing that happens in her summer though is when she emails the one person she idolises I felt so full with warmth and that contented feeling you get when you talk to someone who you know will always be there for you.
