Following on the publication of the popular children’s book New Beginnings, mother of three and writer Rebecca Emin is launching her next book for 10 to 14 year olds ‘When Dreams Come True, today and details of where to find out about the book and the launch are below.
Having known Rebecca for quite some time online and having read her adult work, particularly her many short stories that have been included in a wide variety of anthologies, and having children of my own I was interested in reading Rebecca’s work for children. Her outstanding strength in my view is of being able to hone in on the issues that children and early teens are struggling with as they grow up. Rebecca manages to explore these issues sensitively while at the same time writing a story that grips and engages to the last moments. My children of both genders have enjoyed her stories. When Dreams Come True in particular has all the ingredients of a mystery as her independent and likeable character Charlie tries to uncover her family’s secrets as well as facing up to the common challenges of the early teen. A lovely read for this age group.

About When Dreams Come True
Charlie is happiest when biking with Max and Toby, or watching films with Allie. But when Charlie reaches year nine (age 13), 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 when some of her dreams start to come true?
