Caitlyn Monahan knows she belongs somewhere else. It's what her dead mother's note suggested, and it's what her recurring nightmares allude to.

Desperate to flee these terrifying dreams--and her small town--she accepts a spot at a boarding school in France. Only, when she arrives, her nightmares get worse.

But then there are her amazing dreams, so vivid and so real, with visits from an alluring, mysterious, and gorgeous Italian boy from the 1500s. Caitlyn knows they are soul mates, but how can she be in love with someone who exists only in her dreams?

Then, as her reality and dream world collide, Caitlyn searches for the real reason why she was brought to this school. And what she discovers will change her life forever.

When I first began reading WAKE UNTO ME, I was grabbed from the beginning. I found myself not able to leave this book since it was all heart pounding action and mystery. This is the type of book I've been waiting for such a long time to read!

Caitlin has been haunted by her dreams since she was a little girl. Some of them aren't harmful, but others are lurid. She is trying to find herself, but always sees that she does not belong in Oregon and to her suprise, she receives a full scholorship to Chateau de la Fortune in France. There, in her dreams, she meets a handsome boy, Raphael, in her dreams. She feels this close attractiveness to him that she can't explain and both of them find a mystery of their school, but the frightening part is when Caitlin finds her destiny and what she is.

During the beginning of the book, I was happy that Caitlin was about to find herself and feel happy in Chateau de la Fortune, but once the middle of the book came, I just couldn't stop reading. I had to know what the secrets were and what was going to happen to Caitlin.

There were so many twists and turns in this book that I found myself wanting to read faster just to find out what was going to happen because the anxiety just kept on building up. I can't even find words to descibe this book on how amazing it was.

The cover too is beautiful with the boy who is a ghost and the girl holding onto him. So mysterious, yet thrilling.

Overall, this was a great book and I recommend you buying this one when it comes out on March 31, 2011.
