Awaking by Madeline Freeman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Morgan Abbey's life is about to change. Just weeks before the beginning of her senior year, a mysterious stranger approaches Morgan with information that turns her world on end: First, the psychic ability she believes she has just been pretending to have since middle school might actually be real. Second, her mother, who disappeared abruptly and completely almost a decade ago, might still be alive. Morgan finds herself drawn into a centuries-old struggle involving a shadowy group with incredible powers. The Veneret have quietly coexisted alongside the common people of the world for centuries. Now they believe it is time for them to reclaim their former positions of power-and that Morgan is the key to their victory. Every victory comes at a price-but is it one that Morgan will be willing to pay?
What I think:
I liked the story here, but I had the feeling it was kind of all over the place, which made many things confusing.
I liked the idea of this and I'm kind of sad that I can't read the second book in this series, because it's impossible for me to buy it (where I live) though I can buy the third book. That's the logic of the online bookstore.
It's certainly a quick read and excellent for the early young adult readers. The characters aren't too young, but the way they handle their love life is. The relationships between people are vague and I kind of got annoyed with this whole "wanting but not wanting" at the same time. I hope somebody knows what I mean by that.
