Will is sixteen year old Lucy’s best friend. Their lives intersect in dreams, where destiny pulls them together through different times in history. Even though their meetings are more real to Lucy than the present, Lucy is uncertain if Will exists outside her mind. Lucy’s mum thinks there is something wrong when Lucy sleeps for days at a time. She is so caught up with finding a cure she doesn’t see the real problem. Lucy is bullied at school and is thinking of ending her life. When the bullying goes too far and Lucy ends up in a coma, only Will can reach her. But how do you live when the only person who can save you doesn’t exist?
In an intricate tale of friendship and hope that blurs the line between dreams and reality, author Nikki Moyes addresses the serious issues of bullying, depression and suicide.
"As a senior high school teacher who has experienced the suicide of a student, I have to say that If I Wake is one of the best books I've read dealing with the issues teens face. I believe every family, every teacher, every principal, and everyone who knows a teenager should read this book. It needs to be in every library." - Goodreads reviewer
"If I Wake delivers a powerful message that will touch the hearts of so many who are being bullied or have been bullied in the past. The book should be required reading for students, parents, and anyone who works with youth." - Entrada Publishing
