BOOK REVIEW: WAKE
BY LISA MCMANN

We hope you enjoy this book review by The Bookworm.



Janie's dreams are not her own. Since the age of 8, no matter where she is or what she is doing, if a person near by falls asleep she is dragged into their dream, be it a nightmare or not. She has seen it all, the falling dreams, the drowning dreams, the naked at school dreams and more. The worst is yet to come as the dream's tug grows stronger she begins to suffer physical pains. Now at the age of 17 and struggling to keep her secret, she wonders if there is anyone who can help. But what if that someone is a loner type who is a supposed drug dealer?

Wake was based on an interesting problem that translated into an easy to read paranormal mystery.

I flew through Wake. I was so caught up in Janie's wretched predicament that I couldn't stop reading. Janie's and Cabel's relationship wasn't realistically solid enough to handle the stress between them, so no matter how much I disliked their slowness at getting back together after some fights, I have to agree that it fit the situation.

The profanity and sexual references didn't add any substance to the story, all it did was make it murkier. It wasn't needed. What added depth to Wake was Cabel. His past, his repentance for the wrong that he did, and then his turning away from that sin and setting out to do better was ultimately his greatest quality.

I recommend Wake because of its plot and the main character's interesting dilemmas. I suggest readers who want to read this book to be wary of sexual content and frequent cursing (f-word used often) and to try their best to skip over the inappropriate material.
