Summer’s Dream is an inspiring yet funny story written by Cathy Cassidy. This book is about a girl named Summer who has a passion for dancing. When a new role for a ballet school comes up she practises so much it takes over her life. She stresses out, and turns her summer holidays into a nightmare. Food becomes her worst enemy, and her friends are turning against her. Summer soon finds she has an eating disorder, but will it stop her dreams of becoming a dancer? I like the tension gathering up when she decides to tell no one about her eating issues and then is sent to hospital due to smoke inhalation.
I enjoyed this book because it has inspired me to keep trying and never give up. However, it is important not to try to hard and to accept defeat. I like other Cathy Cassidy books and I am hoping to read some more soon. Overall, I would rate this book 9 out of 10 and it is now one of my favourite books to read. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves reading Cathy Cassidy books.
