Synopsis:

Not all dreams are sweet.

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody- notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can't tell anybody about what she does — they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant....

this book is a real;heart racing,palms sweating page turner. and not to mention the spurts of humor though out. well in four simple sum up words,the whole book is awesome,so i reccomend you get it asap... and don't forget the book two in the wake series because its an "at the edge of your seat" kind of book from start to finish,a real nail biter.

Wow!!! Double Wow!!! Lisa McMann has "it". She has the "it" factor that comes effortlessly in raw, natural, magical talent.

Let me break it down, Lisa McMann is a painter of words.


She doesn't have to "tell" her story. Lisa lets Janie make you feel the story & become a part of her world. Yes, you become Jaine.


In a literary world saturated by vamps & the emerging soaking of faeries, zombies & what not, Lisa McMann didn't just break the mold... she shattered it.


Wake is an electrifying, fast-paced, emotionally gripping page turner!!!

The characters were well fleshed & not tossed in as fillers.

Lisa McMann did a brilliant job making everyone three-dimensional. No Melba Toast characters sprinkled in -- think thick, crusty,delicious sourdough bread.

Jaine is an intelligent character ~ finally.

Sadly, there are some heroines who lack common sense, you wonder ~ or shake your head & roll your eyes~ where are all the strong female characters?

It isn't all about getting lost in a guy's eyes. Nor is it "does he/doesn't he" or "will he/won't he" that pepper some YA books.

Janie is an empowering role model. How refreshing to find Janie a kick butt gal w/ integrity.

Janie wasn't gushing over the latest designer handbag, lip gloss or getting all caught up in the clique scene.

Jaine is definitely someone to look up to & respect. Cabe is _____. You know -- smile = ).

I found myself wishing this was written when I was in my teens... It's been 12 years since I was a teen. lol.

I think this book is a must read. I would definitely assign this to my students if I taught 6th grade & up.

I love the way Lisa wrote Cabe -- he wasn't cookie cutter fluff.

Psst! The only fluff Lisa McMann knows about is what you do to your pillow =}.

I felt all of Janie's emotional trauma. I want to know more about Janie & her world -- even her mom.

Am I the only one who thought mom needed a sit down w/ Oprah & a Dr. Phil intervention. lol.

Lisa McMann blazed her own path w/ this phenomenal debut. No sugar toppings are added & the authentic narration is edgy, fresh & remarkable!!! INCREDIBLE!!!


I would be remiss if I didn't give Lisa McMann the accolades she deserves --from my point of view --Wake is a much better read than Twilight.

I know I'm not the only one to think it... just brassy enough to say it ;].

A must to read this Summer, so hurry up & add it to your beach bag.
