This week my WoW is...


When We Wake by Karen Healey
Release Date: March 5th, 2013
The title of this one caught my attention, but it was the summary that pulled me in! Here is the summary from Goodreads: My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy. Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027--she's happiest when playing the guitar, she's falling in love for the first time, and she's joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice. But on what should have been the best day of Tegan's life, she dies--and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened. Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity--even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?

  5. I've just read When We Wake, and I must say that it's a good book. = ) The world building is very interesting. That whole "human manure" thing is a little bit crazy, though. = )
