Dreamland by Sarah Dessen:
Review by, Lily
"Dreamland" by Sarah Dessen is a suspenseful and intriguing book for a more mature audience.
This book follows Caitlin through her experience being in a relationship with Rogerson Biscoe. Rogerson is nothing like any boy she's ever known. He's magnetic and compelling, but once you rip away his misunderstood bad boy exterior, Rogerson is a dangerous, controlling psychopath.
He doesn't like Caitlin talking to other people, and if she's even a couple of minutes late meeting him, well then, she's in BIG trouble. Rogerson expects Caitlin to blow off everyone else for him and to cut herself off from the people who care about her.
"Dreamland" shows the harsh reality's of abusive and controlling relationships. This book, full of twists and turns, draws you in and doesn't let you go. Unlike books such as the popular Fanfiction, "After" and the best seller, "Fifty Shades of Gray," Sarah Dessen gives a realistic portrayal of these type of toxic relationships in this tear-jerking novel.
