As a school librarian, I want to give great books to readers and I want to pull maybe-readers in with something too mesmerizing to walk away from; something fun, but also a little disturbing.
So that's the book I wrote. THOSE THAT WAKE is loaded with good, chewy ideas and questions that beg you to put yourself into the situation: What if you woke up one day and your parents had no idea who you were? What do you do with a door that wasn't there an hour ago? The answers I provide are also meant to shake readers into asking larger questions about whether the world really works the way they always thought it did.
