Catlin and her sister Sarah have been best friends since childhood, always together. They always share every secret. However on the morning of Catlin’s birthday, Sarah runs away, leaving behind a dream journal as a present. Catlin begins to fill the void in her life and her parents by becoming the perfect ideal daughter that her older sister was.
One day Catlin runs into Rogerson, an individual the sensible Catlin would have avoided. Over time Rogerson becomes Catlin’s lifeline. He is always there, ready with an illegal adventure. However this dream very soon becomes a nightmare. Rogerson in reality is not the loving prince she thought, but rather a manipulative and abusive individual.
Catlin begins a downward spiral of self-destruction, withdrawing from friends, family and life. It is up to Catlin to take the steps to put herself first, and begin a journey of self-healing. Will she do it?
This novel is another one of Dessen’s engaging novels.
