Before i start talking about this book. Let me say i am usually a very big fan of Sarah Dessen. Her books, the one's i have read previously, are usually about a teenager , a girl , dealing with issues and somehow coming out of it stronger. The issues that they deal with seem to be something most of us can relate to. The characters i.e the friends, the main 'hero' all are usually well drawn out characters and you are pulled into their loves.
Dreamland was so so far from that, that it almost seemed as though this wasn't a Sarah Dessen.
First of all this wasn't even remotely about coming out of the issue rather about going deeper and deeper into more issues.
The characters Rogerson and Caitlin are not interesting. They are not engaging.
Fundamentally the way the story proceeded and kept proceeding did not make sense to me. The choices the characters made were so unbelievable that it completely spoiled the reading experience for me.

This is a great book. It covers a topic not many people realize they may be going through, or if they know, they don’t want to realize. I think this book could open the eyes of many teens that may be going through a similar situation. Ive read this book many times and each time I get something more out of it. ( )

Dreamland’s about an abusive relationship so brace for a difficult though worthwhile read.

Caitlin’s more than a little lost after her sister leaves home without a word, at first meeting Rogerson is like a lifeline, at first…

Given her floundering state of mind Caitlin is initially drawn to the air of danger around Rogerson and to brief glimpses of vulnerability, however, Rogerson didn’t appeal to me even the tiniest bit, not ever, which I’m fine with, this isn’t a romance, he isn’t someone the reader is meant to be attracted to, Caitlin’s toxic relationship with him isn’t glamorized in any way. It isn’t made to seem like a relationship to covet or aspire to, you spend pretty much the entire novel cringing, wishing she would tell someone, wishing someone would see, fearing for her (and fearing with her, the scenes where she’s terrified of not being on time to meet Rogerson, you develop a knot in your stomach right along with Caitlin).

The other noteworthy thing about this book is that it doesn’t pretend that walking away is easy, that magically you’re healed, Dreamland takes the time to show the hard emotional work. ( )

For Bianca, Atiya, Ashley, Hannah, Gretchen, Leigh, and Charlotte, who have always told me their stories, and Jay, who is still listening to mine.

I am grateful to my agent, Leigh Feldman, for seeing me through; Michael and Mariangeles, for support and spirit; and my parents, Alan and Cynthia Dessen, who survived my lost years and, like me, lived to tell. Thank you.
