Unwanteds by Lisa McMann

07th December 2012

This was a fun book, perfect for young fans of  “Harry Potter” style stories. It’s a blend of dystopia survival with magical elements and intrigue. While it’s action packed and suspenseful, it’s not frightening or gruesome, and would be an excellent read-aloud or independent read for grades 4-7.

Wake by Lisa McMann

09th November 2008

Wake Janie is a 17 year old girl with all the normal high school problems, plus one unique addition–when Janie sleeps, she can enter other people’s dreams.  With the help of her new friend Cabel, Janie learns how to use her unique “gift” to help others.

An interesting young adult novel.  There’s quite a bit of language, teen sex and drug use–it’s definitely a book for older teens.

And a plug for my alma mater…Lisa McMann is a 1990 graduate of Calvin College.
