I gave this book 5 stars only because I read it in one sitting. However, when I come to think about it, there are a fiew flaws which I would like you to know before selecteng it. Emma can't remember her name at the begining. But she remembers that there is something called school which she would like to finish. She remembers what a boy friend is. Suddenly, out of no where, she gets the "correct" sence of right and wrong. It is nice for a book, but would never have worked in real life. Also, everything is extreme. Mayson always does the right thing, his brother is selfish, Emma's friends are bad... Mayson I can understand. But I wanted to know some of the others better. Her parents were very well presented. But they also had flaws. So when you select this book, I would like you to know that it is fine, but lackeslogic.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wide Awake to be better than the print version?
I enjoyed both the print and audio version, it's a great audio because the characters, plot, the whole book is well written. Moreover the audio gives it another, more personal dimension to the experience
What was one of the most memorable moments of Wide Awake?
The plot, I was fairly new to young adult books (at aged 31) and I wish it had a book like this to call upon when I was growing up. Being more specific fav moment would be the mothers acceptance of the male lead in her daughters life.
What does Emily Durante and Sean Crisden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
They make it more human, and easy to make character distinctions, rather than just one narrator
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I have tinnitus so need to listen to something in quiet moments like when falling to sleep. A good indicator of a great audio book is that I rewind the story in the morning so I don't miss anything. That happened with this book. Many thanks Shelly Crane 😀
