Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to see into people’s dreams? Their fantasies, their fears…it would all be spread out before you…and the best part? They wouldn’t even know! It sounds great, doesn’t it?
Well, not for Janie. Most of her dreams consist of other people’s, and it doesn’t just happen when she’s sleeping. If she’s around anyone who falls asleep, she better watch out, because she’ll be sucked into their subconscious, unable to control her body shaking or going numb while her mind is away.
And the worse thing about all this? Nobody knows but her…until she meets Cabel.
Cabel is a boy in her class who suddenly transforms one school year into the type of guy that has all the girls looking, but he only seems to focus on Janie.
But of course, nothing ever stays simple in Janie’s life and some of her dreams transform into nightmares of a monster armed with knives for hands.
As her year goes on, even things with Cabel start to change and Janie begins to think she never had him figure out to begin with.
But what exactly are those nightmares about? And what is up with Cabel?
Whether she wants to have it or not, Janie has a gift…so will she use it?
Wake is an amazing debut from author Lisa McMann. Janie’s struggles with family, friends, and school are not alien to teenagers today, not to mention the boy troubles! But mix that with her ability to see into people’s dreams and you have a realistic fantasy at your fingertips! You’ll speed through these pages, eager to figure out every single mystery hidden within the novel, and in the end, you’ll definitely be eager for more!
