Book Review: How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer

Like Meg Cabot, Sarah Strohmeyer has a gift for creating smart, funny girls teen readers love. She’s done it again with Zoe, heroine of her latest romcom.
In YA novel How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True, Zoe learns there is a dark core under the glittering façade of the fairy-tale themed amusement park (cough, Disneyland, cough) where she’s a summer intern. For starters, her boss has a blacker heart than Snow White’s stepmother, and the other interns are worse backstabbers than Cinderella’s step-sisters.
On the upside, she has the chance of romance with a real-life Prince Charming, and a shot at winning a big heap of cash. If she can just live through a summer in the Fairyland Kingdom.

Isn't this title a mouth full! Definitely worth the read!

"How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True" by Sarah Strohmeyer was fantastic. There is no other way to put it. I absolutely fell in love with this almost fairy tale. I wish love in real life could be more like Zoe's story. Not only did she have a fabulous summer but she fell in love all the same. Who wouldn't want to work for an amusement park where you got to pretend to be someone else that children fell in love with.

I love the subtle hints of "the mouse" it kept this story quite comical. I know nothing was stated I the book, but most readers if not all would not exactly who they were referring too. I think this was an amazingly fun tale. I wish I had a copy for my bookshelf because I would love to be able to pull it down for people to borrow it and fall in love just like I did.

Zoe is the type of heroin that I like. She knows how to take control of her life even when it is falling to pieces or spinning out of control. How can someone no admire a character or person like that? I couldn't help but wonder if I was in Zoe's shoes if I would have done the same thing. Zoe gave up so much to see her cousin succeed, I hope that if I ever get an opportunity like that, that I would take it.

I think everyone should give Zoe's tale a chance because I don't think anyone would be disappointed. This is definitely a story worth reading. Please take a moment and check out "How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True."

I give "How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True" by Sarah Strohmeyer four out of five bookshelves.
