Dreamland is a sad, but very real story about relationship and abuse. I read this book and fell in love with it. It tells the dark truths about; abuse, feeling alone, and growing up troubled. I really enjoyed reading this book, and could not put it down. Sarah Dessen is a wonderfully talented author who puts love and care into every book she writes. She is one of the best authors, and is one of my favorite!!!! I recommend ANY of her books!!!!

This book actually made me cry, the author really knows how to set the setting and actually put you in the situation. I am a teenage girl myself and this book was incredibly hard to put down. I recommend this book especially to girls who have or who are feeling pain and pressure from someone close to them. I also recommend this book to any teenager who needs a taste of reality.

My friend told me about this book and I am so glad I bought it. Simply amazing. I finished it in three days, I just couldn't put it down! Sarah Dessen writes with such honesty and emotion... it's brilliant. I highly recommend this book. Especially to those who have suffered abuse.

"It's not only the plot that's vivid; the characters are also intensely real. Another pitch-perfect offering from Dessen."
by School Library Journal,
"Dreamland is the story of many contemporary teen relationships. Compelling reading."
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
