About the Author

Libby Robare is just another hopeless dreamer, from the magical land of Oregon. She earned a degree in psychology, and has so far only put it to use by studying the minds of fictional people. On a typical day, she will go to work at a grocery store, and make pretty fruit bowls and such, and return home to unwind by dancing to acapella music and drinking lots of tea. By night, she inhabits the Crossworlds realm, plotting and scheming the lives of people like Rose and Dawn. All, of course, while wearing her own black and gray dress.

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Dawn is a very enthusiastic freshman. She is also a very talented singer. So when she attaches herself to second year Rose, a songwriter in secret, she opens up a part of Rose’s talent that even she didn’t know existed. And, with Rose’s friends, they take heart in doing good deeds, kind deeds around the school, making students and teachers feel more positive as well as raising money for noble causes. They call themselves the Everyday Heroes Club and the school spirit starts to improve as a result of their good deeds, positive, encouraging attitude, and, of course, Dawn’s acapella singing. (In case you don’t know what acapella means, it is a musical term that means singing without instrumental accompaniment.) But, like all schools, there are the mean students, the ones who bully and take advantage of others, and take pride in their mean deeds. And this school is no different. Known as the Villains, these mean students take aim at the Everyday Heroes Club and the consequences are not pleasant. The question that always presents itself is: does evil really have to take the lead? Libby Robare’s young adult novel, Dawn’s Acapella, challenges that very conflict between good and evil. Sometimes it just appears easier to let the evil factor win. But Dawn, Rose and their group take heart in a lengthy letter published in the school newspaper, written by a student recipient of their acts of kindness. While evil may appear to win, the group hasn’t given up yet on their good deeds and neither has the school as a whole. A good lesson in morals and concepts of right and wrong. The teen characters are realistically presented and the plot evolves with care and precision. Basically, a story well told and a good story to share.
