Wake - Lisa McMann
Janie can see other people's dreams. Cool, right? Not so much. She can't choose which dreams she falls into; she just goes. She doesn't tell anybody about her "abilities' because she's afraid people will think she's weird.
Until Cabel, who she thinks she wants to be more than a friend.
Lisa McMann has written an extraordinary book. I didn't want to put it down, it was exciting from the beginning. The writing was really good, and I haven't seen a style quite like hers before. Also, the idea of the book was really cool, too, and nothing I've ever heard of before. I can't wait to read Fade, which comes out early next year! Wake is definitely a book I'll be re-reading.
With mystery, humor, an a hint of romance, Lisa McMann has written an excellent dubet novel that will leave you wanting to read more (which we can't do, unfortunately, until Fade comes out).
