Allbook Review: Wake Me Up Inside

Genre:  Ghost Story

Title: Wake Me Up Inside

Author: Lee Bice-Matheson

Paige Maddison has been having nightmares ever since she learned her family would be moving. Ripped from everything she’s ever known in her hometown Toronto, her grandfather’s ailing health has forced Paige and her family to move to their enormous estate, O’Brien Manor.

As soon as Paige steps into the manor, her troubles begin. On a race against supernatural forces to finish solving a certain “mistery” before her grandfather runs out of time, Paige rallies the power of family, friendship and young love in her battle to save those she loves.

I found this book to be the epitome of a compelling mystery and ghost story that retains the delightful cleanliness of a short novel suited for any age group. Lee Bice-Matheson’s style of writing very effectively drags you in and keeps a reader on his or her toes until the very end. The most noticeable aspect of the whole novel may be Lee Bice-Mathesons’s choice to use Paige’s stream-of-consciousness to describe the scenes around her rather than the usual ominous third-person descriptions found in so many other stories. This lends the book a sort of endearing innocence while maintaining the level of suspense needed to bring the reader to a satisfying conclusion.

The first in a trilogy, Wake Me Up Inside introduces characters whom all demonstrate great potential for further development. I for one await the other two books with a fervor. This is highly recommended by Boyu Huang, Allbooks Review.
