    'Dear Dylan' was a surprising and delightfully heartwarming read with a wonderful central character who by the end of the book felt like an old friend. The format of the story is a series of emails over a period of three months between Georgie and her e-mate. Into her emails, Georgi...

    Dear Dylan was an emotional and original novel and I'm so glad I had this opportunity to read it! It was written entirely in emails, but it worked SO WELL! The two characters exchanging emails put all their thoughts and experiences into these emails, so it felt like I was reading chapt...

    Georgie has a lot going on in her life and feels like she has no one to talk to about her problems. Feeling lonely she starts to email her favorite actor Dylan hoping desperately for someone who understands her. At first the replies she receives are just standard responses but as the p...

    Grâce à un échange d'emails avec la maman de sa vedette préférée, une adolescente de quatorze ans va acquérir une confiance en elle, accomplir ses rêves les plus secrets et avouer à sa mère qu'elles ne peuvent plus endurer la brutalité du beau-père sans réagir. Inversement...

    I love this book. Especially the style it is written in. I love getting emails so the fact that it was all depicted by emails was a plus for me. But as it always ends up. All is not what it seems throughout this book. Georgie writes to her hero Dylan and he starts too reply. I love the...

    I'm not sure why Goodreads says this book is 208 pages long when in actual fact it's 302 pages. Anyway... Dear Dylan is about a 14 year old girl called Georgie who is a massive fan of Dylan Curtland from her favourite TV Show, Jessop Close. She begins to start emailing him about how...

    SPOILER ALERT! This was a lovely read with really important subject matter. I loved the friendship that formed between Georgie and Nan. It was wonderful and refreshing to see a friendship between a young girl and an older mother-like figure through emails. I really enjoyed all the thea...

    Before I started this book I read the reviews & people were saying that it was a warm read and I was like warm? What?s that supposed to mean?? Having finished reading, I completely understand and 100% agree. Can just feel the warmth throughout the book- if that makes sense?...

    Loved it, I nearly dnf the book, the ending is so sweet, would recommend for a nice quick read. ...

    Check out more of my reviews on my blog, Booktastic Reviews. This book has been on my wishlist for the longest time, so when I finally managed to get my hands on a copy (or in this case, win a giveaway for it!), I was over the moon! As soon as it arrived in the post, I could tell I ...

    This self-published has an interesting story. In 2009, Siobhan Curham was offered a two-book deal and turned it down. She self-published Dear Dylan in April 2010 and in November, it won the YoungMind Book Award. Earlier this month, it was acquired by Egmont as part of a two-book deal a...

    I picked this book up as I really like both the cover and the title - they're simple and fun. I also thought that this book would simply be a fun set of e-mails from a teenage girl to her crush, Dylan. It turned out that this was a fun book thanks to our main character, Georgie, but it...

    Never, EVER has a book changed by mind as drastically as this one. After reading the first few pages, my opinionated rate was: 2.5/5.. and now my rating it 4/5. "How did that happen?" you say, [just say it now if you didn't before, so you don't make me look stupid] and I'll tell you. ...

    Review TBC... If you've ever had the chance to snoop into a friend's diary, this novel is for you! Basically, it's a major guilty pleasure for me atm. I'd equal it to reading a really great gossip mag filled with some slightly tragic pieces weaved amongst a very happy-go-lucky piece...

    I love this book. Especially the style it is written in. I love getting emails so the fact that it was all depicted by emails was a plus for me. But as it always ends up. All is not what it seems throughout this book. Georgie writes to her hero Dylan and he starts too reply. I love the...

    I'm not sure why Goodreads says this book is 208 pages long when in actual fact it's 302 pages. Anyway... Dear Dylan is about a 14 year old girl called Georgie who is a massive fan of Dylan Curtland from her favourite TV Show, Jessop Close. She begins to start emailing him about how...

    SPOILER ALERT! This was a lovely read with really important subject matter. I loved the friendship that formed between Georgie and Nan. It was wonderful and refreshing to see a friendship between a young girl and an older mother-like figure through emails. I really enjoyed all the thea...

    This self-published has an interesting story. In 2009, Siobhan Curham was offered a two-book deal and turned it down. She self-published Dear Dylan in April 2010 and in November, it won the YoungMind Book Award. Earlier this month, it was acquired by Egmont as part of a two-book deal a...

    I picked this book up as I really like both the cover and the title - they're simple and fun. I also thought that this book would simply be a fun set of e-mails from a teenage girl to her crush, Dylan. It turned out that this was a fun book thanks to our main character, Georgie, but it...

    Never, EVER has a book changed by mind as drastically as this one. After reading the first few pages, my opinionated rate was: 2.5/5.. and now my rating it 4/5. "How did that happen?" you say, [just say it now if you didn't before, so you don't make me look stupid] and I'll tell you. ...

    Review TBC... If you've ever had the chance to snoop into a friend's diary, this novel is for you! Basically, it's a major guilty pleasure for me atm. I'd equal it to reading a really great gossip mag filled with some slightly tragic pieces weaved amongst a very happy-go-lucky piece...

    Dear Dylan is truly a diamond of a novel. It's touching, funny, and full of heart; simply a novel I just couldn't give enough of. I have to admit when I first saw this novel I was hesitant to read it because of the fact it was written entirely in emails. As it turns out this method...

    I don't know what I expected to happen in this book but I'm glad it didn't! I was pleasantly surprised to find how easy it was to read and how touching the story was. An amazing teenage story of growing up and standing up for yourself. Made me wish I had this book a few years ago for i...

    Grâce à un échange d'emails avec la maman de sa vedette préférée, une adolescente de quatorze ans va acquérir une confiance en elle, accomplir ses rêves les plus secrets et avouer à sa mère qu'elles ne peuvent plus endurer la brutalité du beau-père sans réagir. Inversement...

    I love this book. Especially the style it is written in. I love getting emails so the fact that it was all depicted by emails was a plus for me. But as it always ends up. All is not what it seems throughout this book. Georgie writes to her hero Dylan and he starts too reply. I love the...

    I'm not sure why Goodreads says this book is 208 pages long when in actual fact it's 302 pages. Anyway... Dear Dylan is about a 14 year old girl called Georgie who is a massive fan of Dylan Curtland from her favourite TV Show, Jessop Close. She begins to start emailing him about how...

    SPOILER ALERT! This was a lovely read with really important subject matter. I loved the friendship that formed between Georgie and Nan. It was wonderful and refreshing to see a friendship between a young girl and an older mother-like figure through emails. I really enjoyed all the thea...

    Before I started this book I read the reviews & people were saying that it was a warm read and I was like warm? What?s that supposed to mean?? Having finished reading, I completely understand and 100% agree. Can just feel the warmth throughout the book- if that makes sense?...

    Loved it, I nearly dnf the book, the ending is so sweet, would recommend for a nice quick read. ...

    Check out more of my reviews on my blog, Booktastic Reviews. This book has been on my wishlist for the longest time, so when I finally managed to get my hands on a copy (or in this case, win a giveaway for it!), I was over the moon! As soon as it arrived in the post, I could tell I ...

    This self-published has an interesting story. In 2009, Siobhan Curham was offered a two-book deal and turned it down. She self-published Dear Dylan in April 2010 and in November, it won the YoungMind Book Award. Earlier this month, it was acquired by Egmont as part of a two-book deal a...

    I picked this book up as I really like both the cover and the title - they're simple and fun. I also thought that this book would simply be a fun set of e-mails from a teenage girl to her crush, Dylan. It turned out that this was a fun book thanks to our main character, Georgie, but it...

    Dieser kurze Roman ist ein Buch über das Leben, die Liebe, das Erwachsenwerden und den Kampf um Akzeptanz, geschrieben in E-Mail-Nachrichten. Mein 2. Buch, welches ich in dieser Art gelesen habe. Hier allerdings treffen zwei unterschiedliche Welten aufeinander: die eines Mädchen im A...

    Never, EVER has a book changed by mind as drastically as this one. After reading the first few pages, my opinionated rate was: 2.5/5.. and now my rating it 4/5. "How did that happen?" you say, [just say it now if you didn't before, so you don't make me look stupid] and I'll tell you. ...

    Review TBC... If you've ever had the chance to snoop into a friend's diary, this novel is for you! Basically, it's a major guilty pleasure for me atm. I'd equal it to reading a really great gossip mag filled with some slightly tragic pieces weaved amongst a very happy-go-lucky piece...

    Äußeres Erscheinungsbild: Ich finde das Cover richtig schön. Georgie ist zeichnerische in Schwarz/Weiß beim Email schreiben zu sehen. Die bunten Symbole an den Seiten beziehen sich mehr oder weniger auf Georgies Leben. Auch der Titel, der wortgenau übersetzt worden ist, passt h...

    I did not know what to expect from this novel and I was curious about the story concept because I had not read a book in an email response format and found that I was happily surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Siobhan Curnham has penned a heartwarming story that explores the social...

    I loved this book. It is written in email format throughout following an ongoing conversation between Georgie and her Emate over the course of 6 weeks. I initially was a little bit wary and wasn't sure if this idea would work but it did wonderfully. When I first started reading the ...

    I really enjoyed Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham. Fourteen year old Georgie tries to enjoy summer as much as is possible with an overbearing stepfather, weak mother and no one who listens to her. Though she isn?t given permission to go to the local drama workshop she desperately wants t...

    Dear Dylan is truly a diamond of a novel. It's touching, funny, and full of heart; simply a novel I just couldn't give enough of. I have to admit when I first saw this novel I was hesitant to read it because of the fact it was written entirely in emails. As it turns out this method...

    I don't know what I expected to happen in this book but I'm glad it didn't! I was pleasantly surprised to find how easy it was to read and how touching the story was. An amazing teenage story of growing up and standing up for yourself. Made me wish I had this book a few years ago for i...

    Mensch, was für eine Enttäuschung! Ich habe mir das Buch direkt am ersten Verkaufstag geholt und war sehr neugierig, da die Kurzbeschreibung recht gut klang. Was ich dann aber gelesen habe, war leider eine glatte Enttäuschung, denn die Protagonistin ist leider alles andere als sympa...

    Georgie Harris absolutely loves Dylan Curtland, aka the famous teenage star from the sitcom Jessop Close, and emails him whenever she can. At first he doesn?t reply, but when he finally does, she can?t believe it. She begins to pour out her problems to him, writing about her acting...

    Check out more of my reviews on my blog, Booktastic Reviews. This book has been on my wishlist for the longest time, so when I finally managed to get my hands on a copy (or in this case, win a giveaway for it!), I was over the moon! As soon as it arrived in the post, I could tell I ...

    This self-published has an interesting story. In 2009, Siobhan Curham was offered a two-book deal and turned it down. She self-published Dear Dylan in April 2010 and in November, it won the YoungMind Book Award. Earlier this month, it was acquired by Egmont as part of a two-book deal a...

    I picked this book up as I really like both the cover and the title - they're simple and fun. I also thought that this book would simply be a fun set of e-mails from a teenage girl to her crush, Dylan. It turned out that this was a fun book thanks to our main character, Georgie, but it...

    Grâce à un échange d'emails avec la maman de sa vedette préférée, une adolescente de quatorze ans va acquérir une confiance en elle, accomplir ses rêves les plus secrets et avouer à sa mère qu'elles ne peuvent plus endurer la brutalité du beau-père sans réagir. Inversement...

    I love this book. Especially the style it is written in. I love getting emails so the fact that it was all depicted by emails was a plus for me. But as it always ends up. All is not what it seems throughout this book. Georgie writes to her hero Dylan and he starts too reply. I love the...

    I'm not sure why Goodreads says this book is 208 pages long when in actual fact it's 302 pages. Anyway... Dear Dylan is about a 14 year old girl called Georgie who is a massive fan of Dylan Curtland from her favourite TV Show, Jessop Close. She begins to start emailing him about how...

    SPOILER ALERT! This was a lovely read with really important subject matter. I loved the friendship that formed between Georgie and Nan. It was wonderful and refreshing to see a friendship between a young girl and an older mother-like figure through emails. I really enjoyed all the thea...

    Never, EVER has a book changed by mind as drastically as this one. After reading the first few pages, my opinionated rate was: 2.5/5.. and now my rating it 4/5. "How did that happen?" you say, [just say it now if you didn't before, so you don't make me look stupid] and I'll tell you. ...

    Review TBC... If you've ever had the chance to snoop into a friend's diary, this novel is for you! Basically, it's a major guilty pleasure for me atm. I'd equal it to reading a really great gossip mag filled with some slightly tragic pieces weaved amongst a very happy-go-lucky piece...

    I did not know what to expect from this novel and I was curious about the story concept because I had not read a book in an email response format and found that I was happily surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Siobhan Curnham has penned a heartwarming story that explores the social...

    I loved this book. It is written in email format throughout following an ongoing conversation between Georgie and her Emate over the course of 6 weeks. I initially was a little bit wary and wasn't sure if this idea would work but it did wonderfully. When I first started reading the ...

    I really enjoyed Dear Dylan by Siobhan Curham. Fourteen year old Georgie tries to enjoy summer as much as is possible with an overbearing stepfather, weak mother and no one who listens to her. Though she isn?t given permission to go to the local drama workshop she desperately wants t...

    Dear Dylan is truly a diamond of a novel. It's touching, funny, and full of heart; simply a novel I just couldn't give enough of. I have to admit when I first saw this novel I was hesitant to read it because of the fact it was written entirely in emails. As it turns out this method...

    I don't know what I expected to happen in this book but I'm glad it didn't! I was pleasantly surprised to find how easy it was to read and how touching the story was. An amazing teenage story of growing up and standing up for yourself. Made me wish I had this book a few years ago for i...

    Mensch, was für eine Enttäuschung! Ich habe mir das Buch direkt am ersten Verkaufstag geholt und war sehr neugierig, da die Kurzbeschreibung recht gut klang. Was ich dann aber gelesen habe, war leider eine glatte Enttäuschung, denn die Protagonistin ist leider alles andere als sympa...

    For more info and reviews please visit my Book Review Blog here - A Life Bound By Books 3.5 Stars - When I first started reading Dear Dylan I wasn?t sure just what to think, it took quite a few pages to really get into. It?s written in alternating emails between a teenage girl...

    Very endearing! Dear Dylan is a very interesting and fascinating story about a 14 years old girl, depressed, troubled and miserable with her family problems. When she starts emailing Dylan, everything changes and she felt like she could has her life back somehow. It's like a story f...

    Georgie Harris absolutely loves Dylan Curtland, aka the famous teenage star from the sitcom Jessop Close, and emails him whenever she can. At first he doesn?t reply, but when he finally does, she can?t believe it. She begins to pour out her problems to him, writing about her acting...

    I've had my eye on this book for some time for two reasons. The first thing that caught my attention was the front cover (the one above, not the original one - I didn't discover that until I started researching the book for this post). I love its simplicity and quirkiness. Secondly...

    CAUTION! SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!! Wow! I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I bought this book. At first it was a bit slow, but then when shit was really beginning to go down and drama came into it I was just shocked by some of the things. Like when her dad came back and charg...
