Wake (A Watersong Novel)
Amanda Hocking
Fall under the spell of Wake―the first book in an achingly beautiful new series by celebrated author Amanda Hocking―and lose yourself to the Watersong. Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They're the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi and Thea have caught everyone's attention―but it's Gemma who's attracted theirs. She's the one they've chosen to be part of their group. Gemma seems to have it all―she's carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door. He's always been just a friend, but this summer they've taken their relationship to the next level, and now there's no going back. Then one night, Gemma's ordinary life changes forever. She's taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi and Thea partying on the cove. They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different. Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price. And as she uncovers the truth, she's is forced to choose between staying with those she loves―or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.

Profile Picture

Everyone hated them. Everyone wanted to be them. The three girls, Penn, Lexi, and Thea, were outstandingly beautiful, and in a way they were also scary. And didn't there used to be four of them? No one seemed to know where she went. They all strutted around the city of Capri and pretty much did whatever they wanted which really bothered Gemma and her sister Harper. They would do anything to avoid being by Penn and the others, but Penn and the others seemed really interested in being with Gemma. They loved that she was determined and brave and of course, a good swimmer.
