Item description for Kathleen's Shaken Dreams (A Life of Faith: Kathleen McKenzie Series) by Tracy Craven...
Overview Kathleen flew through the back door into the kitchen. "Mama! Papa! I did it. I won the spelling bee. I'm going to the citywide competition next month!" Mama and Papa sat at the kitchen table. Papa was holding a newspaper, and they were intently listening to the radio. Slowly they looked up, but they stared at her as if they didn't even see her. "Mama, did you hear me?" asked Kathleen, beginning to wonder what was so important in the news. "What's the matter? What's going on? What are you reading?" Kathleen peered over Papa's shoulder and read the headlines written in bold lettering: Stock Market Crash Leaves Millions Penniless and Hopeless.
In Kathleen's Shaken Dreams you will meet a spunky, gifted, eleven-year-old Christian girl who enjoys competition and strives for excellence. Set in tumultuous 1929, Kathleen's opportunities for achievement are many until "Black Tuesday" and the stock market crash shake her dreams for high achievement to the very core.

i LOVED this book!!!! kathleen is really exciting, and you really learn to love her! shes spunky and always has ideas. i thought this was a great book, full of lots of fun, and i like how she met her best friend. if you think you might get this book, i say get it! it was a 5/5 story and it makes you want to read the rest!
is this the right book....? Feb 9, 2007
I was looking foward to reading this series because i LOVE the other four girl series books by Mission City Press--Elsie Dinsmore, Millie Keith, Violet Travilla and Laylie Cobert. But this book really disappointed me. It was just like reading an american girl book and really lost my intrest. I expected it to be more like the others since they are in the same series basically. It was easy to tell what was going to happen next, and each chapter seemed like a whole new story, instead of one story and main lesson through the whole book.
