Cheerleader Caitlin enters a relationship with the mysterious Rogerson Biscoe, only to find herself being abused by him, both verbally and physically. However, Caitlin's attachment to Rogerson makes it too difficult for her to get herself help.
Dreamland gives fascinating insight into the state-of-mind of a girl in an abusive relationship, especially for someone who has never been involved in a situation like Caitlin's. Every girl should read this book to protect themselves from abusive relationships. Even if it only helps them understand a friend's problem better, this book would be helpful.
