Jesse Karp

Dear Librarian:

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.

Interested? Email me at to enter to win a signed copy.
