Summary

A girl. A coma. A life she can't remember. When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital. Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?

Can't recommend highly enough.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wide Awake to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed both the print and audio version, it's a great audio because the characters, plot, the whole book is well written. Moreover the audio gives it another, more personal dimension to the experience

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wide Awake?

The plot, I was fairly new to young adult books (at aged 31) and I wish it had a book like this to call upon when I was growing up. Being more specific fav moment would be the mothers acceptance of the male lead in her daughters life.

What does Emily Durante and Sean Crisden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

They make it more human, and easy to make character distinctions, rather than just one narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I have tinnitus so need to listen to something in quiet moments like when falling to sleep. A good indicator of a great audio book is that I rewind the story in the morning so I don't miss anything. That happened with this book. Many thanks Shelly Crane 😀

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
