Allana Walker - American Dream (A Novella)

**Review by Susan

Since the age of 6 Grace McDonald always wanted to be a Broadway star.

Singing, dancing, acting she didn't care as long as she was on a stage in the Big Apple.

She wanted that American Dream.

But when tragedy strikes before she's due to go live out those dreams, it all comes crashing down!

Will she let this stop her or will she follow her dreams like she always wanted?

American Dream is a beautiful short story of a father and daughter's bond, love and respect.  

From supporting his daughter in her strive for success at The New York Performing Arts School was tainted after learning of her father's ill health.  

"...You're going for your dream and it's right there.  Right there in your hands."

But in the saddest of circumstances he would make her promise him that no matter what lay ahead, she would go and be everything he knew she could be...

After all, you can't break a pinkie swear, it's against parent/child law.

Cue the sobbing mess and ugly crying! Allana Walker has this incredible way of reaching into my heart and breaking it slowly, piece by piece.  

A beautifully sad, short and poignant story that I think many people can sadly relate to.  

I've lost my best friend.
I've lost my hero.
