Book Review: WAKE

ised at the Edge Book Review
Lisa McMann

Some might call it a gift; others might call it a curse. Ever since she was a little girl Janie has found herself getting sucked into other people's dreams. It happens, on trains, school buses, and classrooms; anywhere that people fall asleep in a near proximity to her. Not only does she see all the dream's action, she actively participates in the events.
Janie's role as a "dream catcher" allows her to help people solve specific problems, and move on from catastrophic events that define their lives. But on the flip side, she also is subject to a lot of embarrassing information and revelations. Worst of all, she's sometimes exposed to terror. Life becomes complicated when she starts seeing the terrifying, panic-inducing dreams of mysterious guy named Cable.
Cable, like Janie, comes from a poor, dysfunctional family, and is a bit of a social outcast. Janie has spent so much time and effort trying to fit in, and be accepted by the wealthier mainstream kids at her school. It's probably a huge mistake to befriend Cable. But he seems to understand Janie better than anyone else. She even trusts him enough to reveal her secret. But what is he hiding from her?
Lisa McMann writes a suspenseful thriller, full of twists and turns that keep the reader engaged, down to the very last page. I eagerly await the sequel FADE, which is coming soon. WAKE will be in stores in just a few days.
