One that really can sum up feeling totally drained, broken, but at the same time hopeful? If the word does exist, that’s this book in a nutshell.
While reading this I literally cringed and would slap the book shut, but a couple seconds later I would open it again to see what happens to a girl named Caitlin. She never feels like she measures up to her sister Cass, and in turn that leads her to trouble. And that trouble is named Rogerson this is random but Is there another word for heartbreaking?
He’s different and wild, and she feels like she can gain that from him. Things seem to be ok at first, but you see hints of things that just don’t seem right I don’t want to give away what happens because it isn’t mentioned in the cover blurb I literally wanted to shake Caitlin sometimes. She herself knows that she is on a destructive path, but feels like she can’t do anything to get out of it. Though that isn’t true, you always have a choice.
This book is so raw. I understood why Caitlin thought they way she did, even if it was wrong. It really opened my eyes to the situation she was in. Be warned that there is a lot of drug use. Rogerson is a dealer, so it was inevitable. Dessen does a good job of showing the negative effects of drugs without being preachy, or on the other hand being mistaken as a “stoner” book.
Sometimes to heal you have to go through pain, and drugs cheat you of that opportunity. Sarah Dessen is the queen of showing how all the sarsh choices we make add up to what path we are lead to. She does this in all her books, but it’s emphasized in dsesen one especially.
As always her symbolism is perfect, and as all you fans know she really does know her stuff. If you are looking for something happy this isn’t it, but it’s worth the read. Dessen’s style shines and does an excellent job of telling Caitlin’s story, which I know will hit home for some teenage girls. It’s the best book on the subject I have read. If you liked this one read Breathing Underwaterwhich shows this situation from the other side.
Like I said heartbreaking, but in the way we need it to be.

Instead, these authors take the chance of writing an extended resolution, arguing, I imagine, that it takes time to resolve the problems people have. I would argue that novels that have a strong sense of resolution, something more than the sum of its tied-up-loose-ends, make a more endur There is something to be said for authors that refuse to write the “Hollywood ending.
I would argue that novels that have a strong sense of resolution, something more than the sum of its tied-up-loose-ends, make a more enduring impact on us than their counterparts. The resolution desse Dreamland takes up 32 pages of a page novel, which I suspect some readers will find a little long. Caitlin O’Karen’s older sister, Cass, runs away from to be with her boyfriend, even though she has been accepted to Yale and has parents that can afford to send her there. Caitlin, just turned sixteen, has always been the younger sister.
Now, she has to deecargar herself in the absence of Cass. However, no matter how hard she tries, she finds that the people around her act as though she is the new Descargwr. It is only when Caitlin is with Rogerson Biscoe that she feels free of her sister’s shadow and her decargar expectations. Rogerson drives a sleek BMW, his report card is impressive, and his counselors think he’s “driven but misguided.
He is very dreamy, and he is the love interest that Caitlin thinks will set her free. Unfortunately, he does not transport Caitlin to ddessen “dreamland” that Sinatre might sing about. Dreamland is not a romance novel. It’s not even a “not a romance novel” in the way that Twilight descaryar not a romance novel. Rogerson sells pot “and other illegals,” his father beats him, and he has a way of getting Caitlin to do things that she knows are wrong. Still, she thinks, it’s better than cheer leading, right?
That is, spoiler alertuntil Rogerson hits Caitlin for the first time. At this point, Dreamland takes a turn for the dark. We come to descaggar that Caitlin, the battered girlfriend, is receding from reality and entering a sort dsesen dreamland.
Her grades are dropping, her squad tries to stage an intervention, and one teacher asks her to “wake up. The climax Dreamland details how Caitlin escapes Rogerson’s control, but it is not until the resolution that we see the true Caitlin emerge.
I like how Dessen guides Caitlin through her convalescence. Her recovery would not make for a very good “Hollywood descargxr. Instead, Dessen suggests that the psychology of the battered woman requires a more complicated narrative.
I’ll admit that I was impressed to see all of this in a novel marketed to young adults. View all 7 comments. Wake up, Caitlin, Mr Lensing had said.
But what he didn’t understand was that this dreamland was preferable, walking through this life half-sleeping, everything at arm’s length or farther away. I understood those mermaids. I didn’t care if they sang to me. All I wanted was to block out all the human voices as they called my name again and again, pulling me upward into light, to drown.

Dreamland was my first Sarah Dessen book, and for some reason I’d always thought she wrote light-hearted, fun, romantic contemporaries meant for a warm, breezy summer day. But I was wrong – how utterly wrong I was. Dreamland broke my heart completely and left me gasping, unable to form coherent thoughts when I first finished it.

When I turned the last page, I sat on my bed for a moment, dazed. This gritty, emotional tale follows Caitlin, an eternally-second-best, straight-B girl living in the shadow of her absolutely perfect older sister, Cass. But when Zarah runs away, their whole family is distraught. Caitlin now has to try and fill the gaping hole Cass left behind, but it’s almost impossible when she faces her withdrawn, upset mother and her lackluster father.
Caitlin is sidelined or never given much thought to in the face of their great loss. Then she meets Rogerson.
He’s charming, funny, mysterious and magnetic, and he gives off a dangerous aura. It isn’t long before Caitlin gets involved with him.
