Awakening by Claudia Cangilla McAdam is a book about a teenage girl (Ronnie) who goes back in time and is able to witness (and possibly change?) the events leading up to the . Is she able to change the outcome?
It is difficult to write a review on this book without giving too much away. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from page 1 to page 150. I couldn’t put the book down. There were many “a-ha” moments in the book and the suspense made me stay up late at night to see what happened next. This book also made me feel closer to God. Even though I know that He died on the cross for our sins, this book really made it hit home. I am 29 years old, and I thought it was great how modern the descriptions were in this book (there was the use of the word “skank” in the book that made me chuckle a bit.) I believe this could easily be read and understood by teenagers – boys and girls alike.
There are several favorite parts of the book, but one that made me smile is about how Ronnie was named and the meaning of her name. I would highly recommend this book to both adults as well as High School teenagers.
I received this book free from Sophia Institute Press as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
