Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

LOUD. There was an accident. Ember knows at least that much. She was driving. The car was totaled. She suffered back injuries and brain trauma. But she is alive. That's the only thing left she can cling to.

AWAKE. Eight months later, Ember feels broken. The pieces of her former self no longer fit together. She can't even remember the six weeks of her life leading up to the accident. Where was she going? Who was she with? And what happened during those six weeks that her friends and family won't talk about?

LOST. One by one, Ember discovers the answers to these questions, like a twisted game of dominos. And little by little, the person she used to be slips further and further away.

In the wake of her critically praised young adult psychological thrillers, Tighter and All You Never Wanted, National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin has created another triumph. Loud Awake and Lost is an unflinching story of loss and recovery.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Teenage Ember Leferrier remembers very little of the car accident that left her in the hospital for eight months. Now, as she returns to school, she begins to remember different things about the night and weeks leading up to the crash. However, she must work to determine which of her friends and family are lying to her as she tries to find the truth. Narrator Craden turns in a performance that is guaranteed to maintain listener attention. She reads with a softer tone during Ember's scared and vulnerable moments, and this contrasts well with the tone she uses during more dynamic passages. Not all of voices Craden lends the characters match up perfectly, but she hits the mark well with the major players. Ages 12-up. A Knopf hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
