Symphony of Dreams is a compelling story, drawing the reader ever deeper into the "gift" of Symphony Weber and the twists and turns of her life. Rogan is excellent at portraying the sub-teen and teen characters, fully rounding them out with hopes, fears and motivations. The family dynamic of the Weber household will likely be familiar to many, the mildly dysfunctional "warts and all" family that is more the norm than the Donna Reed family. Watching Symphony struggle with her family, her body image, her friends and her gift inspires sympathy and support. The surprising last act is a nail-biter. Great story, one that stays with you long after the book is closed.
