Dear Dylan: Siobhan Curham: : Books

There’s something about those e-mail formatted pages that makes the reading more personal, sifting through the very thoughts of those who’ve written them, through their words, through their own eyes.

Check out more of my reviews on my blog, Booktastic Reviews. Published April 2nd by Electric Monkey first published March 24th I was so glad when her mum turned up after the performance, naively thinking that everything was fine and she had managed sipbhan persuade Tone-Deaf to let her watch.

Through it all she stayed curhamm and her emails always brought a ssiobhan to my face. I laughed and cried and only wanted more. Das Beste war, dass es vorbei war. I was slightly wary of the email format initially as I haven’t always enjoyed books which are set out like that but I needn’t have worried because I was hooked on ‘Dear Dylan’ almost immediately.

She was so strong and brave and full of spirit and I couldn’t help longing that it really was Dylan e-mailing her, because I knew it would make her feel so happy and delighted. It’s just that I was watching Oprah yesterday and she said we should all say we love each other a whole lot more. Dylan Curtland, star of the popular soap opera Jessop Close.


I hope you love this book as much as I do. It was fun and warm story.

Kids’ Book Review: Review: Dear Dylan

Die bunten Symbole an den Seiten beziehen sich mehr oder weniger auf Georgies Leben. I adored reading this book and witnessing the relationship that blossomed between Georgie and her new e-mate and seeing how things transpired before my very eyes. I simply can’t wait to read by her!

They emailed each other and become dewr.

Fourteen year old Georgie tries to enjoy summer as much as is possible with an overbearing stepfather, weak mother and no one who listens to her.

All Shortlists and Winners. I loved reading about Georgie and Nan’s life. Aug 29, Zoe rated it really liked it. But this novel just seemed to have a happy face on throughout the entire read even while bringing up some slightly darker aspects.

As soon as it arrived in the post, I could tell I had high expectations for it. 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. Finally, she would be able to do something she wanted.

That for me is a sign of a great book – one where you care what happens to the characters. The two characters exchanging emails put all their thoughts and experiences into these emails, so it felt like I was reading chapters instead of emails.

It’s not just about a fan interacting with an idol. 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.

Yours hopefully, Georgie xxx.

All is not what it seems throughout this book. Dear Dylan is a story about fourteen-year-old Georgie Harris and her six weeks of summer vacation This is a very beautiful story even it’s just less than pages of an entirely emails from both of Georgie and Dylan.

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.


The narration stayed strong till the very end. If you in the mood for a great read that will entertain and delight you while making you smile then you need not look any further. A dream come true. I’ll admit, I started this book thinking I would dislike Georgie, stupidly just because she was so easily fooled by Jessica and the generalised emails.

Into her emails, Georgie pours all her thoughts, feelings and emotions about her life and is able to express all the things that she’d never be able to say in read life. And when I say the following I’m speaking nothing but the truth: Siobhan’s voice is so warm and convincing that it took me straight curhwm to being a teenager: 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.

Dear Dylan – Siobhan Curham. Gaia Smith rated it it was amazing Nov 08, I know you probably get loads and loads of fan mail but I wanted to ask you – could we be e-mates?

It’s just that I was watching Oprah yesterday and she said we should all say we love each other a whole lot more.
