Author Sydell Voeller's "Dummy & Me" is a short, but sweet read about a fifteen year old girl who is struggling with not feeling like she fits in anywhere! Her mother left to 'follow her dreams' as an actress, her father has become a stranger and she can't seem to find her niche at school or get noticed by the boy she is crushing on. Thankfully, Deanna finds joy in volunteering at the local children's hospital using her talent as a ventriloquist to brighten the lives of the young hospital patients. Instead of being proud of her gift, she now worries about what the kids at school will think of her if they found out.

"Dummy & Me" is a warm, coming of age story filled with the insecurities of a young girl who learns that by reaching out to others, she finds her own inner peace and strength. I found this to be a warm story that will resonate with tweens on up without getting too bogged down in the message it delivers!

I was provided with a copy of this book by the author in exchange for me honest review. ( )
