Book Review: Dreamland – Sarah Dessen

Ever since she started going out with Rogerson Biscoe, Caitlin seems to have fallen into a semiconscious dreamland where nothing is quite real.  Rogerson is different from anyone Caitlin has ever known.  He’s magnetic.  He’s compelling.  He’s dangerous.  Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else—her missing sister, her withdrawn mother, her lackluster life.  But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?

3/5 stars (liked it)
This is my first book that I have every read by Sarah Dessen.  I always hear how great her books are and I am not disappointed.  This book took a very unexpected turn.  This story is about Cailtin and how her life changes so much after her sister Cassandra runs away from home at the age of 19.  Even though Cassandra is not in the book, she is a huge presence  in Cailtin’s life.  Caitlin uses a journal she has to “write” to Cassandra about what is going on with her life.  Overall an easy read and a good book.
