Review: Dream Journal by Karen Halvorsen Schreck

Livy Moore is sixteen years old, and facing something no sixteen year old should have to face. Her mother is dying. Upon learning this, upon hearing for certain that it is inevitable, Livy shuts herself off from her friends, from her family, and from her own life.

Recording it all in her journal, Livy shares with readers the powerful emotions involved in love, loss, and life. She’s forced out of her hiding place, forced to confront the reality that hiding from life will not make it all go away and will not make it any easier.

DREAM JOURNAL is a painful, honest, and wonderfully written story that should not be missed. Populated by realistic characters and full of the emotions that make Livy’s story real, it’s a sad, hopeful story, and one readers will not soon forget.

Rating: 9/10
