Publisher's Summary

Fall under the spell of Wake - the first book in an achingly beautiful new series by celebrated author Amanda Hocking - and lose yourself to the Watersong.
Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They're the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi, and Thea have caught everyone's attention - but it’s Gemma who’s attracted theirs. She’s the one they’ve chosen to be part of their group. Gemma seems to have it all - she’s carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door. He’s always been just a friend, but this summer they’ve taken their relationship to the next level, and now there’s no going back.
Then one night, Gemma’s ordinary life changes forever. She’s taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi, and Thea partying on the cove. They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different. Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price. And as she uncovers the truth, she’s is forced to choose between staying with those she loves - or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.

What would have made Wake better?

The Narration was awful. It made me cringe to listen to it. It made the whole story seem whiny and overdramatic.

No

Performance felt young

I read the reviews before choosing this book and several reviews commented on how young the book is. I realized after listening to the book, it isn't the story, it's the narrator. The narrator tries very hard to add in voices and make an enjoyable listening experience. However, I felt as though I was listening to a book for small children. Keep in mind that the characters are 18 and 16. Many times I found myself being pulled out of the story due to the performance. It was unbelievable that the characters would talk like children. The narration is so distracting that I had a difficult time following the story line. Very disappointing.
