Review: Wake Unto Me

Wake Unto MeWake Unto Me by Lisa Cach
  • Pub. Date: March 2011

  • Format: Paperback , 304pp

Wake Unto me sets us into a world of French castles and lost history while our main character Caitlin is making new friends and a romance. Wake unto me had everything that was needing in a good YA novel: romance, great character description, a fantastic sense of place ( France, I felt like I was there, and mystery and a smidgen of adventure.

I think some of my favorite parts in the book was Caitlin's interactions with her friends at her school on France, because the dialog was humorous and fun to read.

The ending was well tied in with the story and Lisa Cach created a great tale of teen love and ghosts with great detail and history mixed in.

YA Ghost Paranormal Romance lovers here is a gem for you.

Book Blurb:
A haunted castle, a handsome young man dead for four hundred years, one heck of a scary portrait of a witch, and a treasure hunt -- not to mention a princess for a roommate! -- all await 15 year old American girl Caitlyn Monahan when she earns a scholarship to a French boarding school.

There are secrets behind the stone walls of Chateau de la Fortune, buried for centuries along with the mystery of who killed Raphael, the charming ghost who visits Caitlyn at night. But as Caitlyn unearths the history of the castle, nothing scares her as badly as the secret she learns about herself, and the reason she was chosen to come to the Fortune School.

And nothing breaks her heart as badly as falling in love with a dead guy.
