Flip and Brian have been best friends since grade school But everything changes during the spring Dreamland Lake is a short novel which I guess is supposed to target the YA crowd although it has mild swearing and some pretty dark topics It has you hooked from the early pages This tale begins when two boys who are interested in the history of their small town discover that there once was an amusement park where there is now an overgrown park with a lake The kids find the remains of the concrete supports of the long gone roller coaster and stumble across a dead body Afterwards there are various chapters which develop the characters but do little to move the plot forward The mystery of the dead body itself sort of dies There is a lot of time spent instead describing visiting art museums a shocking discovery in some other kid s house swimming lessons body hair and long distance trucking but the initial corpse and any hopes of truly discovering what happened to the dead guy appears to be forgotten The book instead meanders all over the place and it is clear that the only thing important to the writer is the relationship between the two main characters and how they are destined to grow apart I think it was an interesting and short read but to me it seemed incomplete and a book that fell short of its potential 35

    This is only Peck's second novel He was still feeling for his footing here I think But he grabs us by the throat with his use of easy voices and middle School kids He's so good at that The plot is convoluted a little and th
