Waiting on Wednesday: Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine


Book: Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Release Date: May 23rd, 2011

Genre: Young Adult

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Description from Goodreads: Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her. Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.
In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.

It is an awesome books, isn't it? A little slow in places, but the world that the author's built is intriguing, and the characters are so interesting that I practically couldn't stop reading my NetGalley copy either!
