Book Review: Gateway to DreamWorld By Brenda Estacio

On their way home from baseball tryouts, Brad Colby and his two sons are involved in a terrible car accident that leaves six-year-old Pete in a coma. When Pete awakens, the family is crushed to learn that he is paralyzed.

Meanwhile, Pete’s eight-year-old brother, Jason, has been having powerful dreams that lead him to a mysterious realm known as DreamWorld. Jason discovers that all of his desires can come true in DreamWorld, but the time is fast approaching when he will have to choose between his two worlds.

And when more devastating news strikes at the heart of the Colby family, Jason and Pete set out on a desperate attempt to find the Gateway to DreamWorld and save their family. With time running out on their dangerous path, will Jason and Pete’s fear of the Unknown keep them from reaching the paradise of their dreams?

A great book for grandparents to buy for their grandchildren because my book shows how even in the tragic circumstances, the connection between family members grows ever stronger when love keeps them together. A young boy risks everything to save his family and give them a new beginning in DreamWorld. It delivers a message to readers: “Follow your dreams. Dreams can come true.”
