Dreamland was a great novel. Caitlin's sister, Cassandra, runs away on Caitlin's birthday. After she leaves, Caitlin feels like she has this hole of perfection to fill and struggles to find a way to be unique. Soon she meets a strange boy, Rogerson, and they form a relationship that, despite his illegal activities as a pot dealer, starts out innocently enough. But soon Caitlin is stuck in an abusive relationship that consumes her life and she struggles to find a way to make it better.

The reason Dreamland gets four stars from me was the slow start. It took me until about halfway through the novel to get to a point where I couldn't put it down. But once I didn't put it down, it was a great story. Caitlin's struggle was very realistic and I actually think every high school girl should read this novel and teach herself a little something about abusive relationships.
