I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Wake Unto Me Review

Wake Unto Me
Lisa Cach
Young Adult
Publisher: Speak
Paperback: 304 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-0142414361
Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars

Caitlin leaves her home and everything she’s even known back in the America to attends a boarding school in France, Chateau de la Fortune. Caitlin a good and plain girl (so she thinks) who goes to school thinking everything would be ordinary and just like every other school, only to realize she was wrong. There are new friends, new divas, love, death, ghost, vivid dreams, and whole bunch of other things you can’t even begin to guess.

I loved this book. Well it did start a little slow in the beginning and I put the book down but when I picked it up again I found that it got faster and better. I found Caitlin to be a great character, she was likeable and not once did I want to punch her in the face (I’ve felt like that before in other books), I found Caitlin someone I could relate to. I mean who hasn’t felt confused or out of place at one time or another. What I really loved about this book was the fact that I couldn’t even guess what was going to happen next, usually I can tell how a book will end but this one had me on my toes, and wrong so many times. Lisa Cach took a cliché (girl goes to new school, finds out there’s something special or different about her. And she falls in love with amazingly handsome boy) and turned in something different, unique, and amazing. I found that in this book the small details that you really don’t care about are the things that make the biggest impact, and are the most important.

I can honestly say the only thing I didn’t like was the fact that I don’t have a Raphael of my own, so I’m a little jealous. Wake Unto Me was more than I had hoped for and I hope there will be a part two. I would recommend this book to anyone, I don’t care what kind of books you normally read, Wake Unto Me is one that you don’t want to miss.
