Chasing Dreams by Renae Brumbaugh

That’s what 12-year-old Rebecca thinks she’s doing when she competes for a scholarship at the prestigious Columbia Girls’ Academy. But when Cinderella’s wicked stepsister turns out to be her roommate, her dreams evaporate into nightmares. chasing dreams book cover “They only invited you here to give the appearance of being a charitable institution,” Jill said in that fakey-sweet voice. “There’s nothing wrong with charity, but Columbia prefers to keep its charity cases on the other side of the world, not right here under their roof.” That did it. Rebecca pushed herself to a sitting position and launched off the top bunk. Her feet slammed on the floor. She pointed her finger in Jill’s face in a swift, sure motion she was quite sure she could never duplicate. “Look here, Miss Prissy-Bow, you’ve got a lot of nerve saying—” The door popped open and Rebecca’s words came to a halt. Hannah stood in the doorway, and her expression held a mixture of shock and disappointment and . . . and something else Rebecca couldn’t quite identify. The smug look on Jill’s face only magnified Rebecca’s humiliation when she realized Hannah had just witnessed the height of Rebecca’s temper, and none of Jill’s snide remarks. As of this moment, it looked as if Jill might be right, at least where Rebecca was concerned. Rebecca didn’t have a snowball’s chance in Texas to win this scholarship

Here are my thoughts.........
This was a cute book that reminded me a lot of the American girl books. My daughter loved the American girl books, so I decided to get this one for her. She enjoyed it, I think but it took her a really long time to get through it. I thought it was good that she noticed the spiritual element in the book. She commented several times to me how she noticed them praying and talking about God. Overall I think she enjoyed it. I think this book would be great for any girl who likes the American girl books. Renae is a great author whom I have read before and I am sure to enjoy books by her in the future. Thank you to TBCN and the publisher/author for giving me the opportunity to review this book. A positive review was not required.
