Well, I’d read way too many glowing reviews of it for me not to be excited. Georgie’s situation at home is very difficult and I was genuinely concerned for her safety at times. This sort-of leads me to my next point.
Siobhan Curham Author Twitter: The plot was original and detailed, and there were dfar lot of sub-plots, but everything tied together in the end. She seemed absolutely genuine and was true to herself always. Punkt, das ist so. OK, I wasn’t that much surprised by what happened I didn’t know what was going to happen in the ‘big’ events and if one of them couldn’t reply Georgie is your typical teenager who is depicted exceptionally well might I add.
But as it always ends up. I loved this book. In all, I feel the funny and touching novel Dear Dylan is establishes Isobhan as one great writer, one who I hope has a very, very long successful career in front of her filled with more wickedly awesome books!
Tja, leider war es nicht siohan so pralle wie erhofft. Always looking out for her mum and little sister.
I loved how funny and lively she was even with the tragic events among the happy ones unfolding in front of her and how she found such a great friend in Nan. There’s no way I’d tell my scummy step-dad that I love him because that would be lying. Books by Siobhan Curham.
P I think this would be a really important, helpful and relatable book for young girls, especially ones who are facing domestic violence at home. Her mother was stuck in an abusive relationship and had no time for Georgie.
Curham creates magic on the page in this story about domestic violence and how the power of love and friendship can make all the difference in the world.

I know you probably get loads and loads of fan mail but I wanted to ask you – could we dlan e-mates? Ever come across a friends diary and been attempted to read the entire thing?
This is fiction, but I think it was quite realistic, with both characters having their hesitations regarding an online friendship. Das Beste war, dass es vorbei war. 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. And Georgie just wants to act, overcome the shadow of someone who’s more of an enemy than siobuan friend to her and be free of a family that was slowly falling apart.
And talking about Nan, I adored her as well. Nan and Georgie lived completely opposite lives yet through their e-mails, they were there for each other, sharing thoughts and feelings and reaching out to each other even though they are miles apart.
Dear Dylan is truly a diamond of a novel. Like when her dad came back and charged into the house. As it turns out this method of telling it by worked out perfectly with the story, and I feel that if it was told in a different way it would be missing something crucial, because it allowed for me to get such a personal look in the lives and thoughts of the characters. Curham’s writing could get really poetic every now and again which I also really enjoyed.
As soon as I realised that the whole book is made up entirely of an e-mail format, I began to think that this would be the exchange of letters between Georgie and Dylan and she realises that he isn’t who he seems blah blah blah etc etc etc.
Kids’ Book Review: Review: Dear Dylan
I really admired Georgie who was desperate to have the normal life of a teenager that all her friends seemed to have but had to deal with looking after her little sister, as well as coping with an siovhan step-dad. This is the book for you.
And when I say the following I’m speaking nothing but the truth: Fourteen year old Georgie tries to enjoy summer as much as is possible with an overbearing stepfather, curahm mother and no one who listens to her. It is an emotional rollercoaster which had me gasping and laughing until the very end.
It’s rich in details and powerfully written in a format that teens will adore, told through emails curahm two emates. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
Dear Dylan is a very interesting and fascinating story about a 14 years old girl, depressed, troubled and miserable with her family problems. Dear Dylan not only explored and navigated through the fragile, complicated family dynamics of both Georgie and Nan’s life, it also made room for some romance.
In all, I feel the funny and touching novel Dear Dylan is establishes Siobhan as one great writer, one who I hope has a very, very long successful career in front of her filled with more wickedly awesome books! I loved how funny and lively she was even with the tragic events among the happy ones unfolding in front of her and how she found such a great friend in Nan.
