Scribbler of Dreams by Mary E. Pearson

Kaitlin Malone hates the Crutchfields. For all her life, she's been told that the Crutchfields are at fault for all the Malone's problems.

She and her sister are forced to attend a public school since the Malones can no longer afford the tuition to the private school they normally attend. There Kait meets a boy. During lunch, Bram draws while she writes. She finds herself falling for him. Then she realizes that he's a Crutchfield.

The title was the first thing that attracted me to this book. I wanted to know more about Scribbler of Dreams immediately. As well as attracting me to the book, it also turned out to be a perfect fit.

The hate between the two families is very similar to the play Romeo and Juliet. I learned this by reading the summary on Amazon, and I was anxious to see whether or not Kait and Bram would meet the same fate.

Scribbler of Dreams was a book I couldn't put down. I found myself trying to focus on something (namely, schoolwork), only to end up being distracted by my thoughts on the book, giving in to read just one more chapter. Of course, things didn't turn out that way, and I finished this book within a few hours. It was certainly worth the time spent.
