Honestly, I didn't enjoy the ending of "Dream Spinner" as much as I liked the rest of the book. The reason I say this is because there was a lot of questions left unanswered.

Jori meets this old man when she and her friend, Newt, go to the house in which a dog disappeared with Jori's backpack. They both continue going back to the old man's house, wanting to learn more about going into their dreams. Honestly, I didn't enjoy the ending of "Dream Spinner" as much as I liked the rest of the book. Did the other dreamers ever get out?

Disfigured by a car accident that also killed her dad, Jori has been transformed from a popular high school student into a bitter loner. Fatherless, isolated, and betrayed by her best friend, Jori is angry at the world. And now her sister Lisa has disappeared, unable to cope with the changes in her family. Walking home from school one day, Jori stumbles upon a strange house and meets Professor DePris, who shows her a living tapestry woven from dreams. Distrustful of the eccentric old man and the telepathic spider who weaves for him, she resists entering the dream tapestry until she realizes her sister is trapped inside. It’s up to Jori to enter the tapestry and rescue Lisa from the monstrous old man who is feasting on her fantasies.  But how can Jori convince Lisa to leave this fantastic, yet dangerous, world where anything―even reuniting with their father―is possible?

Jori has detention. Punching your ex-best friend in the face will do that. Sitting in the classroom, Jori reflects on her life. In her opinion, Marisa, the ex-best friend, deserves a lot more than a punch in the face for the way she has turned on her. Not only has Jori lost her father in a terrible car accident that left her horribly scarred on her face and arm, but now her sister has disappeared. To make matters worse, Marisa decides to drop her as a friend and call her a freak in the halls where everyone can hear. This is what led to her detention sentence.

One evening when walking home from detention, Jori starts to follow a dog that leads her through some scary alleys, but eventually to a beautiful, cozy cottage. Once she reaches the front door she is startled by the peep hole. Strangely, it talks to her. Freaking out, she runs away, breathing a sigh of relief once she makes it home; until she realizes that she left her backpack lying on the ground close to the cottage.

The next day Jori dreads the end of detention, knowing she is going to have to go back to find her backpack. Luckily Newt, also stuck in detention, offers to walk her home since it gets dark so early in the evening. Not wanting to go to the cottage alone, she accepts his offer. Once they get there, they are sucked into a world of unimaginable consequences.

Mr. DePris is the owner of the cottage and inside he presents a very welcoming environment, offering snacks and a warm place by the fire. Mr. DePris offers to tell them a story and takes some glittery powder out of his pocket and blows it toward the flames. Once it is in the air, Jori and Newt become overcome by fatigue and drift into sleep to dream. Mr. DePris is able to watch their dreams and seems very excited by what he is seeing.

Jori, not completely asleep, sees Mr. DePris and is uncomfortable enough to rouse herself awake. She forces him to wake Newt up so they can leave. The problem is, Newt doesn't want to leave. He was enjoying his dream of being a warrior, fighting with William Wallace. Before Jori and Newt can get out of the cottage, Mr. DePris invites them back the next day to see a treasure. Newt is very excited to return, but Jori feels uneasy.

Returning to the cottage turns out to be the most dangerous thing they could have done. Once inside, Mr. DePris takes everyone to the second floor to see a beautiful tapestry that hangs on the wall. This tapestry is very special. The intricate designs move. It turns out that Mr. DePris has a spider that can take the dreams of the people he brings to see it and weave them into the tapestry after he puts them to sleep with the glittery dust. After their dream has been woven into the tapestry, the dreamer goes into the tapestry as well and remains there until they dry up and die. Jori realizes the dangers of this and, using the help of an unlikely ally, gets into the tapestry to save Newt and hopefully bring her sister home.

DREAM SPINNER is an interesting and unique fantasy that leads one lonely girl through the process of healing physical and emotional scars while finding her strengths and learning to rely on them to survive and rescue those she cares about.

"Dream Spinner" is about a girl named Jori who must go into her sister's dreams in order to save her from death. Jori meets this old man when she and her friend, Newt, go to the house in which a dog disappeared with Jori's backpack. They both continue going back to the old man's house, wanting to learn more about going into their dreams.

From the beginning, Jori feels uncomfortable about living her dream instead of reality. She also thinks that it is all just a trick that the old man is playing. Jori chooses not to return to his home. That was until she realized that Newt, and her two worst enemies, Derek and Marisa, went back to the old man's house to trade their real life to live a dream.

While Jori is looking through the room to make sure Newt is really there, she discovers that her missing little sister, Lisa, has also chosen to trade her life for a fantasy. Now, Jori must go into each of their dreams and try to save them before it is too late. Can Jori do it alone?

Honestly, I didn't enjoy the ending of "Dream Spinner" as much as I liked the rest of the book. The reason I say this is because there was a lot of questions left unanswered. Did the other dreamers ever get out? What happened to the old man? What did Jori's mother say about the dog? What happened to Marisa? What did Jori's mother say when Lisa appeared home? How long was Jori in these dreams? There were also some really good parts to "Dream Spinner" as well. For instance, I liked how Newt, Derek, and Jori had to work together in order to escape and find Lisa. I think that this is a very valuable lesson as a lot of people, especially teens, don't understand that teamwork is the best way to go at times. I think this book would be best for someone thirteen and older.

Book received free of charge.
