Wake

Amanda Hocking takes you deep into a new world with the first book in her never-before-published 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.

From the author:

Sixteen-year-old Gemma and her older sister Harper share the lead in the Watersong series, with their struggles and love lives propelling the story along. But it would be impossible to forget about the girls they tangle with – Penn, Lexi, and Thea. Penn is the enchanting leader, with a wicked smile and an unwavering desire to get what she wants.  While Lexi seems content to go along with anything that Penn wants, Thea’s true feelings are far more complicated.

 

Penn and her sisters aren’t the only things Gemma and Harper have to contend with this summer. Gemma’s growing crush on the neighbor boy, Alex, is blossoming into something more – whether Harper or likes or not. But Harper has her hands full already, between working and looking after the family, so when Daniel finds his way into her life, she has no idea if she’ll be able to make room.

 

In Wake, Gemma and Harper discover the supernatural secret that Penn and her sisters are hiding, but in Lullaby, their real darkness is revealed. Lullaby – the second book in the Watersong series – arrives 11/27/12.
