Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

It's not only the plot that's vivid; the characters are also intensely real. Another pitch-perfect offering from Dessen." (Booklist, starred review)
“Dessen’s dead-on handling of the psychological maelstrom that accompanies an abusive relationship is vivid, heartbreaking, and honest. This is intelligent fiction that takes a hard but realistic look at many of the pressures teens must face as they enter adulthood, including that first brush with true love. Dessen gets her message across loud and clear without any spoon-feeding or preaching, and the sweetly naive but wry voice of Caitlin is captivating, funny, and entertaining.” Barnes & Noble
“The characterizations have an unmistakable depth; readers may grow impatient with Caitlin and the obliviousness of her nearest and dearest, but they will believe she is real.” Publishers Weekly
“[Dessen] convincingly portrays Caitlin’s emotional turmoil, making her appalling situation believable to readers.” KLIATT
“Dessen masterfully traces the evolution of an abusive relationship in yet another breathtaking novel for young adults. She evokes the various masquerades of love through the couples in the novel…In examining the question of how much must be sacrificed to maintain a romantic relationship, Dessen has created a compassionate novel that examines how wrong love can go.” VOYA
“Powerfully written and not soon forgotten, Dreamland is the secret story of many contemporary teen relationships. Caitlin’s dependency on Rogerson is a realistic and finely drawn portrait of a young woman without a strong sense of self-esteem. Characters are well developed…The high school milieu is accurately depicted as is a family’s reaction to an unpredictable crisis. Compelling reading with contemporary teen appeal.” School Library Journal
“Another pitch-perfect offering from Dessen.” Booklist
