Dreamland Lake

Of seventh grade That's when they find a man lying dead in the leaves near Dreamland Lake What hap Dreamland Lake by Richard Peck was a very interesting novelI must admit the cover and preview of the book made me very excited However it wasn t my favorite It wasn t bad either In my opinion it started getting boring in the middle because it s supposed to make you feel the suspense of the traumatic events However I felt like I was just reading some odd events Don t get me wrong I loved the words the author used to describe the feelings of Brian and the colors of the wooded area For example But by the end of March the trees were beginning to leaf out The little creek that fed into the lake was almost at flood tide the crocuses were up purple and yellow pg 1

DOWNLOAD Dreamland Lake

Flip and Brian have been best friends since grade school But everything changes during the spring This was great though I understand why a lot of people might not like it especially if they read the blurb on the back of my book It s the same as the one on goodreads mentioning two boys finding a dead body but mine also goes into them finding swastikas carved around the place a mystery and some other stuff It s not an inaccurate blurb but it spins ones expectations in the wrong direction I was going into this expecting a thriller of sorts but what I got instead was a wonderful coming of age story This was no skin off my nose since I love those but if you re not into them I d understand you crying FOUL at the publisher for their misdirectionI was also expecting to not like this at all I got this in seventh or eighth grade when the reading lab teacher was cleaning out some of her inventory at the end of the year I may have tried reading it then but it obviously didn t take I tried again around 20022003 age 2324 made it 50 pages found it to be a little too boring and set it aside It never left my mind or my shelf though and I was determined to get it done one day Apparently age 39 was the right time because as I stated before it was great Maybe I enjoyed it than I should ve because my expectations were so low especially after looking at other reviews and ratings on here I don t knowBonus Richard Peck writes really well I don t expect good literature in my young adult novels but this one had itThe story had potential to go a lot of different places including adventurethrillerhorror etc but I m so glad it didn t The ending would ve really sucked if it turned out that Elvan view spoilerhad killed the tramp But he didn t He was just a fat awkward outcast with admittedly uestionable interests eg Nazis who wanted to be liked by Flip and Bryan or anybody really so he was willing to tell whatever lie he needed to make that happen hide spoiler

    This is only Peck's second novel He was still feeling for his footing here I think But he grabs us by the throat with his use of easy voices and middle School kids He's so good at that The plot is convoluted a little and the ending is not satisfying I know Peck says in other places he doesn't want us to be satisfied But there were a lot of
