"McMann lures teens in by piquing their interest in the mysteries of the unknown, and keeps them with quick-paced, gripping narration and supportive characters." Kirkus Reviews

"A lyrical, shuddersome novel whose images linger with you long after you've turned the last page, like the most haunting of dreams." Cassandra Clare, author of NYT Bestseller City of Bones

"Be warned: If you open this novel, you're going to be sucked into it until the very last page. Author Lisa McMann presents Janie Hannagan's strange world in a vivid and compelling story of dazzling originality. Janie Hannagan is a tremendously sympathetic character, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary problem that she handles with resilience and grit. Her romance with Cabel Strumheller, himself a mystery, adds several delightful twists. A terrific read for teens and adults alike."
Richard Lewis, author of The Flame Tree, The Killing Sea, and The Demon Queen (forthcoming).

"Man, oh, man. If I understand anything at all about the movies, this book is bound to become one. GREAT premise--teenage girl who gets sucked against her will into other people's dreams, including their nightmares--and excellent execution. Plus a really hot guy, a heroine we're totally pulling for, and nonstop action and intrigue (plus the really hot guy). You're really, really going to enjoy this one--a fast read, nothing but cool."
Robin Brande, author of Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature.

"...a work of art that we all will long remember."

"I will definitely have trouble waiting for the sequel "Fade" to come out next year." A Page Turner Book Reviews

"I loved Wake! McMann has created a complex tale sure to keep readers engaged." Teen Troves

"Ms. McMann is a master story teller, she has me hooked. From now on all of her other works will be on my book shelf. 5 Hearts." Book Reviews by Crystal
