The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan
The Dreamer is a compassionate story about a young boy named Reftali who sees the world differently than others. You might even call him an explorer of life if you will. Reftali has a father who is very strict and thinks that he is worth nothing at all. He thinks he is a worthless, skinny little thing that has no chance of a future. As Reftali grows up he develops a love for writing story's. He starts to work for his uncle's newspaper and soon gets a writing scholarship to a university. Reftali must face his father a lay down the law if he is going to ever be happy as his life goes on. What will father say? Join Reftali as he goes through a rough time and how he over comes it. This book I think is going to be the next Newberry Honor award. When you pick up this book your in for a journey through love and compassion for what you do.
