Goodreads description:

What if the last place you should fall in love is the first place that you do?

You’d think getting sent to Turning Pines Wilderness Camp for a month-long rehabilitation “retreat” and being forced to re-live it in this journal would be the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.

You’d be wrong.

There’s the reason I was sent to Turning Pines in the first place: I got arrested. On prom night. With my two best friends, who I haven’t talked to since and probably never will again. And then there’s the real reason I was sent here. The thing I can’t talk about with the guy I can’t even think about.

What if the moment you’ve closed yourself off is the moment you start to break open?

But there’s this guy here. Ben. And the more I swear he won’t—he can’t—the deeper under my skin he’s getting. After the thing that happened, I promised I’d never fall for another boy’s lies.

And yet I can’t help but wonder…what if?

My review:

Rating: 3 stars

Dear Cassie was a nice book. There were plenty of funny moments, as well as meaningful ones. There were characters with their quirks and secrets. I got a clear idea that the book was mostly about forgiveness and, most importantly, Cassie's forgiveness of herself. I liked Cassie and how her story progressed. She had an attitude, yet had a lot of fear. However, she did soften a bit and begin forgiving herself.

I did like the book, but it didn't leave much impression on me. It didn't stand out as a fantastic, must-read contemporary read.
