Kellen's mother has always insisted that her only child was born male, not female--so Kellen has been raised as a boy. At school, she meets Gryffin, whose mind is as strong as his legs are damaged, and the two become friends and allies. A few years later, the two get jobs working at an inn nearby. When it is discovered that Gryffin is the kingdom's new Dream-Maker--someone whose mere presence can help dreams come true--he is whisked away to the castle, leaving Kellen behind. By now, their friendship is shading into something more. Will it endure?

Our customer reviews

THE DREAM-MAKER\'S MAGIC was an enjoyable read, light and funny. In the story, Kellen Carmichael\'s mother insists that she gave birth to a boy and then that boy changed into Kellen. This story shows how Kellen learns to deal with her mother\'s stubbornness and makes new friends. She learns to be herself and to not worry about what others think. This story has a fascinating plot and a surprise ending. I would definitely suggest this book to more
