Book Talk Review; Dreamland

  One of the most powerful Books By Sarah

 
 Wake up, Caitlin

 Ever since she started going out with Rogerson Biscoe, Caitlin seems to have fallen into a semiconscious dreamland where nothing is quite real.
  Rogerson is different from anyone Caitlin has ever known.
  He's magnetic. 
  He's compelling. 
 He's dangerous.
  
  Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else--her missing sister, her withdrawn mother, her lackluster life. 
 But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?

 This book is an emotional one. It is one that many teenagers go through. Many people in general actually. 

 I couldn't read this book without crying. 

 Caitlin is in a dream-state,  since her sister Cassandra left, and her mother became withdrawn, Caitlin met Rogerson Biscoe. 

 At first it's the distraction that she needed. With cheer-leading, a new boyfriend, and new friends, Caitlin tries to pick up her life. 

 But then something happens, something that changes Caitlin. 

 Caitlin struggles. She has that internal struggle that every girl who goes through something similar does. Is it her fault? 

 Why? 
 How? 
 Can it be fixed? 
 If only...

 If only what Caitlin? If only you would have opened your eyes. If only you would have challenged before it was too late. 

 But none of that matters now. 

 None of that matters, you can't change the fact that it happened. You can only let it make you stronger. 

 Nothing hurts worse than thinking it was your fault. 

 This book is powerful, it sends the message that many of us try to ignore. While many discredit books that deal with this type of subject matter. We need these books. 

 We need to face the fact that life is NOT all sunshine and roses. Sarah took a big step when she wrote this book. 

 She wrote about one girl's struggle, and the confusion on how fast a person can change, from someone you know, to someone you don't. 

 *Note- warning, this book deals with sensitive subject matter. 

 *Quote- "I concentrated on reaching the surface, feeling the water break across my face as I burst through it into the air to finally breathe on my own." -Caitlin

Old Cover ( I love the New Cover the Best)
