Awake: A Fairytale is a YA (Young Adult) book. The characters are 18, so it probably would be considered upper YA, although I think it would appeal to a younger audience as well. I’ve heard from several readers that they have given Awake to their teen/tween kids after they’ve finished the book and I love that they liked Awake well enough to share it with their kids!
One such reader is Wendi Sotis. Wendi is an Austenesque author that I know through Twitter. She bought and read Awake in the first few days it was out and then shared it with her eleven year old daughter, Maddie (Wendi obviously has really good taste in names). Maddie read Awake and decided to do a book report on it for school! Here is Maddie’s illustrated book report of Awake: A Fairytale:
Warning: This report contains spoilers (and is AWESOME)
Oh. My. Gosh. Is this not the most amazing thing ever? I totally adore it! If I were Maddie’s teacher I’d give her an A 😉 In fact, Wendi, you should let her teacher know that the author was impressed with her reading comprehension and detail recall. I might be getting this framed because it totally makes me feel as if I’ve “arrived” as an author. Thanks Wendi for sharing the book with Maddie, and THANK YOU to Maddie for the awesome report and for letting me share it here!
