I think this book has restored my faith in YA. I've only started browsing the booksites, and already I'm noticing a large amount of people criticizing the narration style, to which I say, "HUH?!" While I found Wake just a tad bit too description-heavy for my tastes, the narration was still some of the best I've read in a really long time, and I only wish more authors wrote like this. The characters are heartbreakingly human, particularly Cabel, and I just want to learn more! More about them, more about who they are, who they will be, where it all began. I'd like to learn the origin of Janie's ability, and why she's chosen to have it. I really cannot wait to read Fade, and I hope Ms. McMann doesn't ever break up the amazing [crimefighting] duo!
