Dogsled Dreams made me forget I was sick! I got so involved with Rebecca's desire to run a dogsled race, Jackie, a girlie-girl BFF who Rebecca thinks doesn't understand why she's not more interested in boys and makeup, tension and conflict within the family, a pinch of romance, and an ongoing mystery of sabotage that my tea got cold and I have no memory of sneezing and coughing!
Not only was the story engaging and the characters delightful (she gave each dog its own personality), Terry Lynn Johnson presented facts about dog teams, equipment, and procedures in a page turning adventure. For example, I had no idea dogs pooped on the run and what could happen to the driver when they do!
Dogsled Dreams did not disappoint but it ended much too soon. I would love to read some more adventures about Rebecca and the other great cast of characters Terry Lynn Johnson has brought to life. Kids are going to love this book!
