Tifferz Take~

I was completely captivated with the story and characters in Devon's Dream. Ms. Ashby has weaved an emotional love story with unforgettable  people. It is amazing what one phone call can do. It can change your whole life and it does for Rick. I think that Trix and Davey characters were perfect. Trix is so feisty and Davey in need and awe.   Devon and Rick  are more complex and Ricks parents are so fun. They all seemed to come to life and I felt a connection with them.  I like to feel a connection to the people I read about. Ms. Ashby totally delivers.  One of my favorite parts of the book was the mess that Davey gets himself into and how Devon helps him out! I honestly think this is a must read story! I can't wait till Ms. Ashby's next book! I know it will be awesome!

Just FYI~ This does contain a few swear words.
