Review: Wake by Lisa McMann

Title: Wake
Author: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Pages: 210
Rating: 5/5

Not all dreams are sweet.

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreasm is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a life time.

She can't tell anybody about what she does - they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.

Then she falls into a gruesome night-more, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She's a participant...


Janie can see into other people's dreams, and she doesn't like it. She goes through every day hoping that no one dreams while she's in school. So she doesn't have to deal with the paralyzing annoyance that she has to keep up with. She's starting to see dreams and it's piecing together something that's more real than just a dream....

This book amazed me, and was just what I was waiting to read. The writing in this book was even more interesting and awesome, it follows Janie everywhere... Including in her dreams. I could really feel like I was in each dream as well. McMann did that amazingly well, with just a minium number of words.

The characters were well rounded as well, each had their own fears, wants, and hopes. The relationship between Cabel and Janie never failed to interest me, there were surprises with ever turn of the page. Cabel sounded amazing, especially after he changes his looks around...ahem.

There are two more books to this series, and I can wait to read the other two. This is a great novel, so of course I can't not read the other two (:
