Mini Review: As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

Title: As I Wake
Series or Stand-alone: Stand-alone
Author: Elizabeth Scott - Website
Available: Now
Reading Level: YA
Source: ALA

Description from Goodreads:

Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them - and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.

Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.

My thoughts:

This book was completely and totally not what I expected, and this is why I love it as much as I do. I’m contemplating how much detail to put in my review. I’d truly hate to ruin the ride for anyone else.

I will say this was one fast paced read. I was holding my breath, while anticipating what would come next the majority of the time I was reading. Thank goodness it was under 300 pages. It would have been a shame to pass out from lack of oxygen while reading such a fantastic book.

P.S I want to run (drive, skip, hitchhike) to the closest bookstore & purchase every book Elizabeth Scott has written. I am her newest fangirl.

My Rating:
