Dreamland The morning of Caitlin’s 16th birthday she woke up to a very hectic household. Come to find out her 18 year old sister Cass had run away in the middle of the night. Neither one of her parents could understand why; she had everything she could dream of.

Caitlin looked at it as a chance to try new things instead of constantly being shadowed by her older sister. She tried out for the school cheerleading squad and met this mysterious guy Rogerson Biscoe. Most of her friends in school had warned her about this guy.
