“A fast-paced and captivating tale ... Shinn has created a fully realized world full of unusual characters.”—School Library Journal

The Dream-Maker's Magic
Kellen is a girl whose mother has raised her as a boy. Gryffin is a crippled young man living in an abusive house. Their friendship helps them both escape their difficult situations—but not until a new Dream-Maker for the kingdom is revealed do they uncover the secrets and truths that will shape their lives.

Publishing history:
Hardcover published in 2006, paperback in 2008.

Interesting tidbit:

The lawyer Raymond Lemkey is based, at least in part, on my father. My grandfather was adopted by his stepfather; his original name was Raymond Lempke, which would have been my father’s name as well had the adoption not taken place.

My favorite scene:
Chapters Fourteen and Fifteen, when so much happiness comes to the Parmer Arms—and they finally realize why.
