Dream Girl Awakened…. Let me pause for a second….
Ok!! Are you still with me? Good!!
Dream Girl Awakened has to be one of my best reads of 2013 – Hands Down... Yes... I said it!! I know it’s still early in the year, but I stand by that statement.
Stacy Campbell does an exceptional job of creating unforgettable characters & a relatable storyline. How many of us have confided in their girlfriends concerning relationship issues? After reading this book you will think twice about who you confide in. How many of us had to learn the hard way about taking someone for granted? How many of us know firsthand about the grass not being greener on the other side? These are some of the dilemmas these characters face in Dream Girl Awakened.
I loved that the Author gave the characters a voice to be able to convey their version of the truth to the reader. I read this book eager to get at the end, but not as eager for it to end. Does that make sense? It does to me!!
I was given the Digital ARC copy of this book, but I ended up buying the Kindle version, so I would be able to keep up with the characters while I was at work. I plan on buying the paperback version for my "Shelf Candy." Yes! That’s how good this book is...
I highly recommend this book! Great debut from Author Stacy Campbell. She has definitely found her way on my List.
