HOW ZOE MADE HER DREAMS (MOSTLY) COME TRUE
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
Strohmeyer fans, get excited! Zoe is funny and relatable and she feels like a friend immediately. Like any good fairy-tale princess, she’s without a mom, lending some depth to an otherwise bubblegum plot. There are some bizarre unfinished threads, odd characteristics tried on and then unceremoniously abandoned, but this remains a solid, feel-good read.
Zoe and her cousin Jess are thrilled to have landed dream internships at New Jersey’s newest summer theme park — internships that come with a chance at winning a huge and much-needed college scholarship. The girls think they’re in for an epically fun summer, but disappointing cast assignments and unhappy pasts threaten their dreams. (BALZER + BRAY, May, 304 pp., $9.99, ISBN: 9780062187451, PB, 13 & Up)
