American Dream is a book by Marie Johnson.
Sixteen-year-old Dream Lewis never thought that one night would leave her half-dead and chasing justice. After she is assaulted by a dirty cop and her mother falls victim to a domestic violence incident, Dream is forced to pick up the pieces of her life. But thoughts of that terrible night keep haunting her. She won’t rest until she gets that dirty cop off the streets, but with no evidence, will anybody believe her?
