Will is sixteen year old Lucy’s best friend. Their lives intersect in dreams, where destiny pulls them together through different times in history.
Even though their meetings are more real to Lucy than the present, Lucy is uncertain if Will exists outside her mind. Lucy’s mum thinks there is something wrong when Lucy sleeps for days at a time. She is so caught up with finding a cure she doesn’t see the real problem.
Lucy is bullied at school and is thinking of ending her life. When the bullying goes too far and Lucy ends up in a coma, only Will can reach her. But how do you live when the only person who can save you doesn’t exist?
An intricate tale of bullying, depression, suicide, hope, and time travel that blurs the line between dreams and reality.
Praise for If I Wake -
“This book was so different than I expected it to be. I really enjoyed it all the way through- especially the time travel scenes that were so vivid. I think the balance between these scenes was perfect for the flow of the story as I was rapt the whole time.” - Amazon Review
“How do I review this book? Well, that's probably the hardest question of all. How about I say I've never seen anything like it before in my life. And coming from an individual educated in literature, formally and otherwise, that's saying something. Brilliant falls show. Five stars? How about ten? How about fifteen? This book doesn't deserve anything less than the eye level shelf of any bookstore.” - Amazon Review
