Dummy and Me

BWL Publishing Inc.


Fifteen-year-old Deanna Lambert is miserable. She can't find her niche with the popular kids at school and believes she is ugly. Then too, after her mother deserted the family to pursue an acting career in New York City, Deanna's father has grown distant and embittered. Now Deanna is saddled with most all the chores at home—and she and her dad barely communicate. Yet Deanna's one happy escape is her volunteer work at the nearby Children's Hospital. There the activities director convinces her to get back into her ventriloquism, a creative skill Deanna's grandfather had taught her years earlier. Deanna and her puppet, Ramblin' Roy, entertain and delight the young hospital patients, but Deanna is worried. What if the kids at her school discover what she's doing? Will they think she's just "a baby” who still plays with dolls? Deanna takes the risk, but one problem soon leads to another. Can she ever gain true acceptance at school, especially from Jason, the guy whom she has a major crush on? And most of all, can Deanna embrace her gift of ventriloquism, and in so doing, come to terms with her mother's leaving?

---

"Dummy and Me" was a heartwarming read, a book I couldn't put down. Deanna Lambert suffers from typical teenage angst, wanting to belong with the "in" crowd at school. Her mother is estranged from the family, and Deanna and her dad have communication problems. One outlet for Deanna is her dummy, Ramblin' Roy, and her skill with ventriloquism. The scene in which she entertains the youngsters at the Children's Hospital is especially poignant and cute. This was truly a delightful read, and as with all of Sydell Voeller's stories, a good pick-me-up.

This story deals with bitterness and grief, but shows the reader that with God's help and true love you can overcome. I especially liked the biblical references to faith, and prayer. Great read!

A sweet contemporary romance about two people struggling to overcome difficulties in their pasts and their fears about letting themselves love again. One thing I especially liked about this story is that it gave us the point of view of both the female and male main characters, both of whom were realistic and well-developed. A great book to curl up with.
