Dream A Little Dream (Silver Trilogy #1) by Kerstin Gier

Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy) - Kerstin Gier, Anthea Bell

What fun this book was! I'm already quite partial to Kerstin Geir, ever since the Ruby Red trilogy was translated to English. Dream A Little Dream has everything you need to get lost in a quick read. Adorable family drama, a protagonist with a sharp wit, and some pretty boys who are hard to look away from. Best of all, there's no love triangle! YA abounds with these, and so reading a book where that isn't necessary is essentially the best thing ever.


Let's talk about Liv, our protagonist, first. I absolutely adored her. Liv's character is adorably awkward. She's sweet, has a wit to be reckoned with, and doesn't fold under pressure. In fact, what I loved most about her was how vibrant she was. Even in the face of darkness, because trust me when I say that this book isn't all sunny skies, Liv shines. She's a logical character which doesn't quite stop her from being all swoony over boys, but it does make it much more fun to read.


Even better, is the family relationship in this story. Liv's mother travels constantly for work. As such, Liv and Mia are shipped off all over the globe and never really settle. Their mother is a bit flighty, but her love for them comes through. Still, it's the relationship between Liv and Mia that takes center stage. These sisters are so sweet! Sure, there's the normal banter and bickering. There's also a ton of adoration and support there too. I love sister relationships, and this one was perfection.


Story wise, things move quickly but there's always just enough explanation to make it easy to follow. I'll admit that there are a few plot holes, I definitely had some questions at the end, but I'm heartened by the fact that this is a trilogy! I need more as soon as possible.
