“She feels the pencil fall from her fingers, feels her body slump to the arm of the couch. Tries to sit up, but with all the whirling colors around her she can`t tell which way is up right. She overcompensates and falls the other way, onto her mother.”

17 year old Janie Hannagan has a power like no other. Raising herself Janie never had much free time. All of her time is spent in school, volunteering at the local nursing home or “babysitting” her incapable mother. Carrie Bradnt was Janie’s only friend, until the first day of her senior year. Cabel Strumheller, a distant kid with a troubled past, catches her eye for the first time. Due to Janie`s special power she learns something about Cabel that brings them together at a level nobody could ever understand.

Wake is a very well written novel but sometimes it gets confusing due to her power because it switches the point of view. Sometimes books are hard to get into, or slow going, but Wake is exciting right from the first page and it`s hard to put down. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age because it`s an all around great book.
