This book should definitely be required reading for health classes teaching about dating abuse. With her signature spot-on teenage voice, Sarah Dessen once again crafts a masterpiece. Her novels are not merely novels; they are works of art that I hope will last forever. While not everyone has gone through an abusive relationship, Sarah Dessen describes Caitlin's thoughts and fears so genuinely that readers will feel as if they ARE Caitlin themselves. They will feel all of Caitlin's pain and confusion, wrapped up in a world so well written that it's easy to forget you're reading a book.

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Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else-her missing sister, withdrawn mother, her lackluster life.
But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larder problem then being without him?

Really good book, according to the prolific reader. My eleven year old read it. She describes the stories and it takes a long time for her to create a review, but she highly suggests this book.

Great book that sucked me in from the beginning. Dessen has a way of writing that makes you sympathize with the characters immediately. I felt like I was racing alongside Caitlin, and didn't want to put the book down. Second book from this author for me and I plan to read all she has written.
