I hope you enjoy the blog and enjoy reading the books featured as much as I have.

What’s it all about?
Everyone’s got a dream…
Ramona Rae is starting a new job.
She’s good at starting jobs - as
she’s done it over fourteen times, maybe more…
She’d stop counting a long time
But this time, she’s convinced that
her new job as a file clerk will work out.
Only Ramona is harbouring a secret
dream and deep down she knows she will only ever be happy if she is a writer.
When she meets Sam on her first day
and he sees her scribbling in a journal, he invites Ramona to a meeting after
And that is the day she became a
member of the Dream Team – a group of people who get together to support each
Sam and Kumal want to be
professional musicians, while Paige wants to get married and have a family.
When Ramona finally admits that she
wants to be a writer, they challenge her to write a chapter every week.
The weeks go by, and Ramona soon
finds herself writing more and more.
She’s never been so happy in her
But things take a turn for the
worse when she suddenly finds herself declaring her love for someone who
doesn’t feel the same way.
And then things start to get
The Dream Team is a heart-warming
tale about facing your fears and never giving up on your dreams.
What did I think?
Aww I really enjoyed this novella.
At just 79 pages this is short and sweet, but well worth a read. Perhaps if you
are commuting, or have some time free and want a bit of escapism…then this is
Ramona is a great lead character.
She flits from job to job never settles into anything. Her life is also lacking
romance and fun. She has just landed a job working in a hospital records
department in a role that she imagines will be so boring it will never last.
Then she meets her colleagues, and as she gets to know them they invite her to
join their after work club ‘The Dream Team.’
Ramona has always yearned to be a
writer but no-one encourages her, and she has little confidence that she can
make her dream come true. But once she shares her ambition with the dream team
they actively encourage her to follow her dreams. But will it work and will It
help her find happiness?
This book is a fab story that has a
clear and lovely message about never saying never, and to go for what you want.

and often find ourselves re-evaluating our lives. I loved Ramona and could

Of course it is not all plain sailing,
and there are complications along the way that threatens to throw a spanner in

only criticism I would have is that because it was short it was all packed so
tightly it was over too quickly. I would love to have seen more of Ramona and
her friends. I would love to see her character develop and appear again in the
A feel good, warm, fun read that
urges you to take chances and never give up I will be looking out to read more
