Wake - Lisa McMann

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....

I'm so glad I read this! I absolutely adored it. I guess its my type of book. Its so amazing the way she writes, she doesn't tell you everything just enough. I did feel a little bit confused with dates, I kept going back, to see what day it was. But its so refreshing and original the way she writes you just keep turning pages non stop.

The story is amazing, I've always felt intrigued by dreams, I think people don't really know the power they have. So reading -fiction- about the subject was delightful. The characters are simply marvelous. This is one of the best debuts I've read, a mesmerizing plot that will stay in my mind for long. And the cover is one of my favorite, I'm somehow discovering I'm definitely a fan of black covers. If you like dream mystery and troubled romance you will most likely fall in love with this book just as I did. I highly recommend it!
