One of the best books I've read in a long, long time. It should win the Newbery Award! Dreamsleeves is unforgettable! I love the idea of wearing your dreams on your sleeves because you just never know how might help you achieve them.

Could you run a house at age twelve? Aislinn has recently finished the seventh grade and is home for the summer taking care of her four younger siblings while her parents work full time jobs. Capable of caring for her young siblings and running the house, Aislinn is very mature. She understands that her father is an alcoholic. When drunk, he becomes abusive to her, the younger children, and her mother who struggles to defend them. As a result of her father’s drinking, the family lives with her father’s mother and her father issues unreasonable commands. Aislinn is not allowed to leave the yard, talk to boys, or go to other people’s houses. Recently, Aislinn’s father has been drinking more and more. Bills are beginning to go unpaid and he is becoming more and more abusive. In an attempt to get help for her family, Aislinn creates Dreamsleeves. By writing her wishes on a sticky note and wearing them on her shirt sleeves, people cannot ignore her hopes. Aislinn is a great character who could be described using all the adjectives of a noble heroine. She protects her siblings, confronts her fears, and inspires others. Paratore conveys all Aislinn’s worries and qualms in such a way that Aislinn seems to become real. The reader wants to meet the brave girl whose thoughts they read. This author does an excellent job telling the reader Aislinn’s story. Dreamsleeves seems appropriate for any female reader older than age twelve. Aislinn motivates her readers to achieve their dreams. Dreamsleeves receives five stars; it is a great book everyone should read.

I love how Aislinn didn't give up and she's really hardworking since she takes care of B,C,D, and E. This is a really good read and good for ages 10- 13 . And it's a relly good idea - dream sleeves.

Wow, this book is one of the best books I have ever read...seriously. You can FEEL the connection with Aisleen and the pain she goes through. She is an utterly amazing character. She reminds me of me - a 13 year old girl going through hardships, which I love because she gives me hope. The dreamsleeves idea is AMAZING. Seriously, you need to try it - I just love the idea. Please read it, you will be satisfied.

I loved the book so much I can sort of relate to her not having a reliable dad so amazing not going to spoil any thing read it for your self

It was sad to know that her dad has a drinking problem and how her dad won't let her leave the lawn except for going out to the store. I think it is really sad to know that Asnill has to babysit her brothers and sisters amd never had fun that a 12 year olds have to have. But overall it was a great novel
