9780142410967: The Dream-Maker's Magic

Kellen’s mother has always insisted that her only child was born male, not female—so Kellen has been raised as a boy. At school, she meets Gryffin, whose mind is as strong as his legs are damaged, and the two become friends and allies. A few years later, the two get jobs working at an inn nearby. When it is discovered that Gryffin is the kingdom’s new Dream-Maker—someone whose mere presence can help dreams come true—he is whisked away to the castle, leaving Kellen behind. By now, their friendship is shading into something more. Will it endure?

About the Author:

Sharon Shinn is a journalist who works for a trade magazine. Her first novel, The Shapechanger's Wife, was selected by  Locus as the best first fantasy novel of 1995. She has won the William C. Crawford Award for Outstanding New Fantasy Writer, and was twice nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. A graduate of Northwestern University, she has lived in the Midwest most of her life.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up–Shinn returns to the world of The Safe-Keeper's Secret (2004) and The Truth-Teller's Tale (2005, both Viking), creating a stand-alone story with a unique heroine. When Kellen starts school at age 11, she is considered strange by the other children. She meets Gryffin, who is teased because his legs are deformed. As the girl grows and becomes more independent, she begins working at a local inn, which becomes a shelter for her friend when he needs to escape his uncle's abuse. After becoming involved in the lives of many of the travelers who frequent the inn and becoming ever-closer friends, the young people learn that Gryffin is the new Dream-Maker, whose very presence can cause others' dreams to come true. Kellen follows him to the capital, where more adventures follow, leading to a surprising conclusion full of twists and mistaken identities. Kellen's voice is authentic and direct, and her comments add humor and perspective to her adventures. This is a fast-paced and captivating tale, sure to appeal to fantasy fans looking for a touch of romance. Shinn has created a fully realized world full of unusual characters.–Beth L. Meister, Pleasant View Elementary School, Franklin, WI
