From USA Today Bestselling Author Angela Fristoe comes the award winning young adult novel Waken
Haunted by nightmares of her mother killing her, Janie Moore just wants to be normal. After years of abuse and eventual abandonment, she’d rather forget her parents ever existed and moving to her mother's hometown of Everod is the last thing she wants.
Life in Everod seems normal enough until she meets Tristan. He's out of her league and the emotions he draws from her are almost enough to make her ignore all of the strange things he says. Almost enough to ignore the way the entire town seems ready to pounce on her as if she were fresh meat.
Almost, though, isn’t enough when Janie finally discovers what the town is hiding. The people of Everod have been waiting for Janie and if she hopes to survive, she’ll need to confront the truth of who and what she really is.
