About this item

Amanda Hocking takes you deep into a new world with the first book in the Watersong series.

Beautiful. 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, Thea, and Lexi have caught everyone's attention, including the eye of practical Harper. But it's her sister, Gemma, they've chosen to be part of their group.

Sixteen-year-old Gemma seems to have it all - carefree, pretty, and falling in love with the boy next door. But her greatest passion has always been the water. She craves late night swims under the stars, where she can be alone yet belong to the sea. Lately she's had company. Penn, Thea, and Lexi spend their nights dancing, singing, and partying on the cove—and one night Gemma joins them. When she wakes up groggy on the beach the next morning, she knows something has changed.

Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. As she uncovers the truth about her new mythical powers, Gemma is forced to choose between staying with those she loves or entering a dark world brimming with unimaginable secrets.

This is the first Amanda Hocking book I've read and she's really good. She really keeps you into the story, hard to put it down. I read it in a few days. Now I can't wait to read Lullaby.

This is a story about two sisters who have lost their mother. Wake kept me turning the pages until the bitter end and now my 12 year old daughter is reading it. I loved the idea of the water singing to Gemma and the ending left me wanting to get my hands on the next book as soon as possible. The e...see moreof the reviewer's review
