Wake by Lisa McMann

Grade: 5/5
Summary: Janie isn't the typical seventeen year old. She gets sucked in to other people's dreams. No matter how much she tries to control it she can't. She has seen everything from flying to the classic standing in the front of everyone naked.
Janie lives on the "bad" side of town. Her mother is an alcoholic. She was friendless, until Carrie moved in next door. Carrie is plagued by dreams of a drowning boy that she can't help no matter what.
Janie keeps her ability a secret, because it could be disastrous to herself. She then finds Cabel. Everyone thinks he is a drug dealer and a pothead. As, she enters his dreams... he enters her life. His dreams can be very romantic one minute and the next minute, his dreams are very disturbing. With Cabel's dream, Janie finds that she's not just a watcher of people's dreams, she's a participant. And she's determined to help Cabel through his nightmare. Cabel kept Janie's secret, but as soon as she finally started to let him get close to her, he messed up.
Note: I read this book, in one night and I have re-read it. I don't tend to re-read books, because I have a lot of the other books to read. Wake is a mix of romance and realistic fantasy. I recommend this book to everyone. It is a page turner and you'll be wanting more Also, Fade will be coming out on February 10th, 2009. So don't miss that either.
Happy Reading!
Peace out, Sarah.
