“About Dream” By John Davenport: Book Review

"About Dream" by John Davenport - Book Review

About Dream by John Davenport is a new contemporary and romance novel written for young adults. I read it in the summer of 2020. It is truly a wonderful book to read. It gives you a fast-paced, funny, and sexy mystery story that will keep you reading throughout the entire book. Also, it tells a simple story but still manages to have a heartwarming ending.

A very pretty but misunderstood girl is getting ready to go on her first trip to her new home. The house she has been staying in is old that they built years ago that is up for sale. She plans to take her new friend with her.

Some Facts About Dream

But, as planned, she discovers the house is haunted. The ghost of a little girl who died many years ago comes back and starts tormenting the grown-up girl who lives there. Now, it is up to her best friend to save her, and the one thing she needs most to rescue her from the ghost is a special item that only someone who has the dream mood can find.

At the beginning of the book, you are introduced to the dream mood, an object that John Davenport uses in almost all of his writing. It is described as a big red golf ball that he keeps on his desk and has been used on many occasions. In his book, The Butterfly Business, it was the flowers that help the author achieve the dream mood. I think this book uses the golf ball well and gives you just what you want in the way of a fast, funny, sexy mystery story that has the romance, suspense, and mystery in it.

The scenes are so quick and make the reader want to continue the book. I loved the friendship between the two main characters, Tom and Kate. Both love each other dearly and do whatever they can to save the other and they are only friends but as I continued reading the book, the love became more intense, and it is amazing to see them finally engaged in a relationship.

The Story Telling About Dream

About Dream tells the story of a beautiful young woman who is being haunted by an old and very evil spirit. You are introduced to a person that has always loved her. When she discovers that her new friend has something that will help her find the spirit, she just has to take her with her and get out of her home.

The ghost attacks and the two friends get into an instant bond. Kate just wants to protect her, but Tom just wants to help. The two move into the old house. There are more than just ghosts haunting it. There is the haunting of the past as well as that of the present.

The two women try to put everything back together, but there is so much history of the past that they can’t seem to put their past selves together. The ghost continues to stalk them. As they begin to work together, they begin to learn more about each other and the past.
