Wake by Lisa McMann

Janie doesn't really feel like she belongs. She's been mostly self sufficient since she was young due to her mother's alcoholism, and steers slear of most people, afraid that they'll learn of her secret: Janie can enter into others' dreams. Unwilling or otherwise, she is a silent observer to anyone who may be sleeping near here. Janie has been able to handle it for nearly 11 years, until she becomes friends with Cabel. Because Janie actually partakes in Cabel's riveting nightmares.

Told in a journal format that allows the story to glide along smoothly, Wake is fast paced and full of high suspense. Janie is the girl that everyone knows, but no one notices, thus making her story and life even more appealing. The tension and the mystery, the vagueness and trepidation are what make Wake so appealing. Readers will follow this mesmerizing story with rapt attention as Janie's talents expand, she discovers the truth about herself and rises to take her place in the world.
