Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Wake up, Caitlin." My English teacher wasn't the only person who'd noticed.

"Caitlin!" the dance coach barked as I flubbed another cartwheel.

"Caitlin?" Rina, my best friend, asked. "Hello?"

And finally, the one voice to which I snapped to attention, every time.

"Caitlin," Rogerson said, and I listened so hard, trying to tell just by the cadence what might happen when we were alone.

What they don't understand is that Caitlin can't afford to leave this dreamland, this half-sleeping state where everything and everyone can be kept at arm's length. Because then she'd have to face the ugly truth about her relationship with Rogerson: magnetic, fascinating--and very dangerous--Rogerson. What is it about Rogerson Biscoe...and why can't she leave him? In her most challenging novel yet, acclaimed author Sarah Dessen guides readers through the harrowing netherworld of a young woman's shattered dreams to her profound awakening.

Review:

"It's not only the plot that's vivid; the characters are also intensely real, with each of the supporting characters as strong and indispensable as the leads....Another pitch-perfect offering from Dessen." Ilene Cooper, Booklist

Review:

"[T]he characterizations have an unmistakable depth; readers may grow impatient with Caitlin and the obliviousness of her nearest and dearest, but they will believe she is real." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Dessen crafts a believable portrait of a teenage girl....Despite the book's heavy symbolism and shortcuts with characterization, readers will find themselves being pulled in by Caitlin's story." Horn Book

Synopsis:

Love can be a very dangerous thing.

 

After her sister left, Caitlin felt lost.

 

Then she met Rogerson.

 

When shes with him, nothing seems real.

But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?

 

“Another pitch-perfect offering from Dessen.” —Booklist, starred review
