VBT# Wake - Abria Mattina

Today's VBT# is author Abria Mattina and spolighting is her book "Wake".
Synopsis: Wake - Abria Mattina - September 2011
Eighteen isn’t too young to run your life into the ground, but it’s not too old to fix it, either. The desire for change drives Willa Kirk from St. John’s, Newfoundland back to her hometown of Smiths Falls, Ontario, away from her mistakes and the place where her sister died. She’s looking for a place to settle and rebuild, but Jem Harper just wants to get out of town, back to the life he knew before cancer. By letting the tragedies in their lives define them, they are both dying a little more every day. Welcome to the wake.
Wake is written in two main voices: Willa's and Jem's, with parallel accounts of the same situations as well as of their feelings and struggles...usually by discussions going on in their heads at the same time. Later in the book a third voice is added, Jem's sister. And through each of these separate accounts we get a full picture, like pieces of a puzzle.
