The Book of Dreams by Nina George
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
While I could have done without the flashbacks and pseudo time travel, this is a wonderfully heartwarming tale of how a boy, desperate to meet his biological father, invites his father to his school; when he doesn't show, Sam assumes his father doesn't care but then finds out that there was an accident. Cutting school, meeting a former girlfriend of his father's and spending hours in the hospital with his father (and another patient he meets by accident) Sam grows up. There is some great atmosphere here, and Sam, Henri and Eddie are so real I expect to meet them one day.
