Publisher's Summary

"Wake up, Caitlin." My English teacher wasn't the only person who'd noticed."Caitlin!" the dance coach barked as I flubbed another cartwheel."Caitlin?" Rina, my best friend, asked. "Hello?" And finally, the one voice to which I snapped to attention, every time."Caitlin," Rogerson said, and I listened so hard, trying to tell just by the cadence what might happen when we were alone.

What they don't understand is that Caitlin can't afford to leave this dreamland, this half-sleeping state where everything and everyone can be kept at arm's length. Because then she'd have to face the ugly truth about her relationship with Rogerson: magnetic, fascinating--and very dangerous--Rogerson. What is it about Rogerson Biscoe...and why can't she leave him?

In her most challenging novel yet, acclaimed author Sarah Dessen guides readers through the harrowing netherworld of a young woman's shattered dreams to her profound awakening.

My favorite book!

I have read this book dozens of times since I first discovered it as a kid and its always spoken to me like no other book has (other than the HP series) so when i saw the audio version i was ecstatic! Overall the book is awesome, the storyline hooks you within the first page, but the narrator is very bland and boring so much so that it almost made me not want to listen to it but i toughed it out. I'm not an expert but i feel i would of done a way better job at reading it out loud.

One of my favorites

This has been a favorite book of mine for a while. I love love Sarah dessen. The narrator is ok. You get used to her after the first chapter. I feel she is slightly nasally and her male voices make me laugh. But I appreciate the effort she puts into different voices so I can follow the dialogue easier.

Great

I think the author really captured Caitlyn's voice, however I didn't really prefer her voicing the other voices but it was still great it was just how I imagined her voice the first time I read it.

cliche after school special

Ugh. If this is what all Dresssen's books are like, I'll pass on Amy future books.

Just okay

Not a big fan of the reader, it took a while for this book to capture my attention. I felt mad at the main character the entire time.
