From BiblioReads: DOGSLED DREAMS: Twelve-year-old Rebecca dreams of becoming a famous sled dog racer. She’s an inventive but self-doubting musher who tackles blinding blizzards, wild animal attacks, puppy training, and flying poo missiles. All of her challenges though, seem easier than living up to the dogs’ trust in her abilities. Rebecca runs her huskies along the crisp trails near Thunder Bay, Ontario, where northern lights flare and dangerous beavers lurk. Through the bond she shares with the dogs, Rebecca learns that hard work, dedication and living in the moment bring their own rewards.

Book review: Exhilarating. When Rebecca is dog sledding the reader quickly becomes one with the sport, the dogs and the scenery along with Rebecca. I was drawn into the world of dogsled dreams learning quite a bit about the nuances of the sport, but most importantly learning what matters most to this 12-yr dog-loving old girl who not only yearns for a chance to race and prove her capability, but also for the sense of family she’s been missing. It’s very easy to get lost in the pages of Dogsled Dreams.
