    1 thought on “Dreamcatcher”

    1. Dreamcatcher is a powerful, artistic and beautiful little novel, combining western genre themes with the supernatural and introducing two unlikely friends who learn that even in the worst of times, having the best of companions can keep you motivated.

    2. A book that will appeal to any kid who has ever felt like an outsider or had to face up to a bully. Thirteen-year old Jesse Alvarez and his father are constantly on the move, as his dad seems to hop from one ranch job to another. The pair land at Savage Ranch, where the owner's son, Cade, is a mean and snarky bully. Jesse tries his best to steer clear of Cade, but that becomes difficult after Cade's father lends Jesse a horse to compete against Cade in a junior rodeo. A further complication aris [...]

    3. My son's teacher says he is a "reluctant" reader. Translation: he hates to read. But he loved this book. It also touched me on many levels as well. My son and I took turns reading chapters out loud to each other. I knew he really liked the book when he reminded me it was my turn to read. He never griped about reading it to me either. This book will speak to any kid that has ever been the new kid in school or has had to deal with bullies. Yes, this is a book about loss and family separation, but [...]

    4. This is a wonderful refreshing book of all ages. And the way that Ann Curtin describes the horses is magical! The story is about Jesse, the new kid all the time because his father goes from ranch to ranch for work. At Big Bob's Ranch will he find the home he is looking for. YOu meet characters like Cade, who reminded me of Draco from Harry Potter and the very eccentric Aaron who lost his brother a year earlier to violence. This book deals with everything friendship, loss, divorce, family, being [...]

    5. I'm almost 100% positive that I reviewed this already so I think ate it. It's been a while since I read this so I can't give into too many specifics regarding my feelings on this book. I do remember liking the story a lot, though the back half of the book is especially loaded with plot/story stuff leaving the book a little unbalanced. The characters were good too, especially Aaron. I really liked him and his arc. Sorry I couldn't be more specific.
