    One thought on “Street Dreams”

    1. “There had to be something to take the taste off life.”Initial Final Page Thoughts. Sounds good to me too, Tyson.High Points.Boys, boys, boys! Seriously, there are two females in this book and it’s brilliant. I always forget how annoying YA girls are. But yeah… Tyson, Marc, Rawiri, Ihaia…. All of them . As a city girl myself, the urban setting was greatly appreciated. Auckland slang (Although I had to admit that I still don’t understand how the word ‘bro’ can be pronounced as ‘ [...]

    2. We all dream. Grand or small the dreams keep us up and moving through the day. But they can get lost or forgotten so easily in the harsh monotony of the day to day struggle to live and work. How do we keep dreaming when everything seems to shout out—“Why bother?”Tama Wise’s Street Dreams tells the story of Tyson Rua growing up in a hard neighborhood in Auckland, New Zealand. A neighborhood filled with pain, poverty, violence in the homes and out, hip hop, breaking, work, graffiti, loyalt [...]

    3. Amazing story, I loved it!! Review to come in March 2012 :DOriginally posted at Butterfly-o-Meter Books on Mar 14 2012:When I saw this title up for grabs on NetGalley, I immediately went for it, and thankfully my fervent enthusiasm was received warmly, and so I’ve gotten the chance to read this marvelous novel some good months before its release. As I’ve come to see in some cases, that’s both a good and a bad thing, and I’ll start with the good: having the chance to read a great book con [...]

    4. Well I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, and the story and characters have popped into my brain on odd occasions over the last few days since I' finished it. It's not perfect, and there's a few niggling flaws, but it's thought provoking and a good character study. Tyson is a teenage Maori boy with problems. His father is dead and he's working night shift washing dishes in an upmarket restaurant in Auckland City. It takes him an hour each way on the train to get to work from his impoveris [...]

    5. 3.5 starsRating Street Dreams is giving me fits. It's not a bad book. It's an fairly ambitious book with flaws, but a book that's heart is in the right place.I'm honestly not sure how I ended up requesting this book from Netgalley. The story is centered around a boy who is struggling to come to terms with his homosexuality. It's not that I have an issue with that, but I don't typically read issue books or any kind of romance. So it's like a double whammy of not my normal.But this book made me th [...]

    6. I was really excited when I got the chance to read Street Dreams for a couple of reasons. One, because I enjoy reading LGBT literature, especially in the young adult category so that I can stay up to date on the issues some of these teens go through (all over the world as this book proves). Secondly, what better way to learn about another country and culture then to read a book set in a different place then my own?Street Dreams takes place in a downtrodden area of Auckland, New Zealand.

    7. Street Dreams might be aimed at a YA audience, but it doesn't shy away from adult topics. Tyson, our hero, is up to his eyeballs in problems. His mother is working herself ragged to support their family, his best friend Rawiri is in the middle of an abusive home situation, and Tyson's own job as a dishwasher is growing more and more precarious. Most important of all is Tyson's own struggle to reconcile himself with his sexuality. As a young man of mixed islander descent, Tyson is expected to be [...]

    8. This review was originally posted at Here There Be Books on January 20, 2012.The problem (if it can be called a "problem") with reading so many great books in a short amount of time is that the books that aren't great but are still good seem even less good than they normally would if they'd were read after a streak of sucky books. Do you know what I mean? Street Dreams isn't a bad book. I just wasn't as wowed with it as I wanted to be.I liked Tyson! He's got a lot of problems and he doesn't alwa [...]

    10. Really strong story with engaging and interesting characters. Tyson and his life, his hood, his problems are very realistic and honest. The tension at the end was very well done as well. I had no idea what Tyson would do to handle his problems but in the end a very hopeful and engaging read.(Amanda)

    11. More thorough review later. A bit dark and depressing, yet there is still something about Tyson that makes you want to go on this journey with him, and the author redeems it at the end. Highly recommend this book.

    12. Really strong story with engaging and interesting characters. Tyson and his life, his hood, his problems are very realistic and honest. The tension at the end was very well done as well. I had no idea what Tyson would do to handle his problems but in the end a very hopeful and engaging read.

    13. The diction and word choice are a little erratic, but overall a really engaging story and set of characters. Tyson is really sweet and really relatable. Just a good, solid book.
