Her family was in turmoil. Poor Georgie-getting her hopes up then having them taken away from her like that!

This was a lovely read with really important ucrham matter. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Ich habe mir das Buch direkt am ersten Verkaufstag geholt und war sehr neugierig, da die Kurzbeschreibung recht gut klang.

Dear Dylan was such a satisfying read.

Dear Dylan

Yours hopefully, Georgie xxx. Curham has made the most of this by using variations on it, which are extremely funny. As it turns out, it’s not actually Dylan that is replying to Georgie, but instead it his his mother, a woman called Nan. The very element curyam endangers the whole exercise is also what makes the novel’s original and so engaging in the first place.

I wanted to just grab Georgie’s mother and shake her, get her to realize what an awful relationship she was in and how she was not paying attention to her daughter at all.


I was so happy for her when she got the part of Blousey and couldn’t wait to see how she did but I could not believe cear lenghts her step-dad went to to make her life a misery. Das beste war der Schreibstil, der war war sehr unterhaltsam und recht einfach gestrickt. There’s no way I’d tell my A first crush. I think that it could be quite a challenge for a writer to portray an online relationship between a young teenager and an adult, but Curham didn’t do a bad job at all.

And ‘Dylan’ saw that spark in Georgie and before she knew it, they became e-mates.

She was entertaining, honest, and so sweet to Georgie. 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. Haven’t we all dyllan an over-the-top fangirl at some stage and desperately wanted to communicate with our celeb crushes?

I love its simplicity and quirkiness. So thank you too, from the bottom of my heart. I don’t know what I expected to happen in this book but I’m glad it didn’t!

Siobhan Curham Author Twitter: Georgie does seem like a bubbly, quite confident girl from the outset, but she has a lot of problems at home, including an abusive step-father and trying to discover what her father was really like when he was alive.

And talking about Nan, I adored her as well. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. I didn’t think it could work throughout the novel.


To be honest, I was just getting fed up of her stupidity. To have a cruel stepfather and a mother who dtlan even find time to be one, Georgie had big shoes to fill in, and it wasn’t easy for a teenager to do. Georgie wasn’t even talking to Dylan, she was talking to his mom.

At times, other novels in this format can offer drag or create a little confusion with the back and forth motion but this one just flowed so well. Siobhan Curham is a great writer, and the email format made me become that much more attached to the main characters.

I just couldn’t stand reading about her getting happy over what I thought was a automated reply from his message. This was such an amazing story. When Siobhan Curham asked me to review Dear Dylan I was intrigued by the idea of a novel written purely in the form of emails. Banned from going to the local drama workshop by her bully of a step-dad and her increasingly fragile mum, she is consigned to six long weeks of looking after her tooth-fairy obsessed kid sister.
