Wake by Lisa McMann

Front Flap: 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... It was pretty good. It's really interesting, the idea of going into others dreams without meaning to. I mean think how much that would suck! You'd never get to slep or you would, but not normally. Janie is a brave character though, because at first she's not sure what to do, but then gets inspiration to try to figure out how to help the people in the dreams. At least she has someone to help her out through it all, and of course it would be a boy. But I like them together, they're like a dream team! And thank goodness he was like an undercover cop and not really all over Shay, cuz thatd be sad. Fade will be a great book I know, but I have to wait for 10 more holds in the library before I can get it! Popular, popular!
