She falls in love with him, and gets past his walls. I very much enjoyed both of them, and, based on my experiences with them, I cataloged Sarah Dessen’s fiction as intermediate contemporaries, balancing dark issues with optimism and sweet romance. We can almost hear the throbbing drums in the background as Caitlin, who has been bullied by Rina into going off to the lake, frantically tries to telephone a dangerously furious Rogerson. This book was a total waste of my time.

It made me think about how hard it is to walk away from something you are so bound up with emotionally Rina, too, who has issues with men, brings some comic relief to the story, and she and Caitlin are another unlikely friendship.

But then, out of nowhere, he hits her. But he’d been all I’d had, all this time. The ending was a surprise and I love that the book didn’t just take an easy way out with and everything was super okay with everyone, the end. Like any sane person would.

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen – Reading Guide – : Books

I don’t have much patience for people who are too weak to I’m on my post-final YA fiction binge and working my way through the roommate’s Sarah Dessen books. Caitlin and Rogerson’s relationship becomes more physical.

She starts exhibiting dangerous behavior and even gets a new, destructive boyfriend – Rogerson Biscoe. This book will really touch you as it did for me.

Relationships are essentially a power struggle, a game of manipulations. What has been the effect on Caitlin of following in the footsteps of her older and more talented sister all her life?

Ghoulia’s aunt wants her to If you have a kid – you better own that shit. Or at least I would not call them love between two people who trust and respect each other. This was probably the worst Sarah Dessen book I’ve ever read. Even Caitlin’s best friend who is only defined when she is dating someone I found a bit sad. I did not need a reminder twice every friggin’ chapter that love-interest boy has dreadlocks. But I wish she would desseh writing cautionary tale-type fare; it’s unfair to the target readers.


It was as if I was dreaming with Caitlin and then rudely awakened with her, dsssen well. That is, spoiler alertuntil Rogerson hits Caitlin for the first time. But this is one world that is filled with a vast drealmand that extends for miles and miles.

I feel like I was just expecting more with all of the great reviews and recommendations. Is this book available on kindle? The writing was raw and honest. The story is a good, but creamland book. But I do think it was smart and ddeamland of the author to tackle this issue for young adults as I think people overlook this happens in high school relationships too. Caitlin begins to see Cass in a TV show that Cass’s boyfriend works on. I’ll keep reading her because I like her stories, but I am not wild about what young girls will pick up from her lessons.

In Sarah’s Words

It’s one of those books that you just have to read. On her 1st game at half-time, Caitlin goes to the top of the pyramid. There were plenty of people to talk to. She feels it, then falls to the ground, and someone from the bottom of the pyramid, runs out from under everyone to catch her.

Couldn’t put it down. It was a wonderful read I never saw coming.
