Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite The Dorm by Terri Weinmann is a young adult fiction novel about coming of age. This is a book that would appeal most to an audience of female young adults who enjoy coming of age novels with a dark feel. Blair Palmer has just begun living away from home and is in her first semester when she meets Logan Mills, a senior. She feels like she has hit the jackpot and that he is the perfect gentleman, who is both intelligent and charming. His promises of love and safety lull her into a false sense of security and lead her to ignore him separating her from her friends and family. Slowly Logan begins to change who Blair is as a person, but it is all for her own good and because he loves her ... or is it? The Dorm by Terri Weinmann might be a fiction novel, but it reads a lot like fiction based on reality. Terri Weinmann clearly demonstrated her understanding of toxic, abusive relationships with how she creates a very realistic one between Blair Palmer and Logan Mills. This is not the normal love at first sight sort of romance; instead it is a story of how the seemingly perfect love can prove to be about seduction, manipulation and betrayal. The relationship between Blair Palmer and Logan Mills seemed normal at first, but as it quickly turned sour, I could not help feeling bad for Blair’s friends and family who were being cut from her life. I could not believe that she would allow some boy she just met to turn her against all of those that had loved and supported her, but Logan Mills really highlighted all of the manipulative techniques that someone could use to do this.
