My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy. Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027–she’s happiest when playing the guitar, she’s falling in love for the first time, and she’s joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice.
But on what should have been the best day of Tegan’s life, she dies–and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened.
Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity–even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn’t all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?
When I started to read ' When we wake' I honestly wasn't to saw what to expect . Which was great as I didn't have any preconceived ideas of what the story was about. However By the end of the book I found my self wondering what would I do if that was me?
The story follows Tegan a 16 year guitar playing Beatles love girl who after a tragic event wakes up 100 years later. Everyone she ever new is dead and now she is government property.
As she struggles to deal with the world she has awaken in, the truth as to why they brought her back is slowly being revealed. When the lies unravel the question is who will be left standing .
There were a. Lot of great elements to this story. The characters were well thought out and the over plot was unlike anything else I have read. It really got me thinking about the world we live in and how the choices we can effect the onces we love and the world around us.
I found it a interesting choice to make the friends and loves of her past life have the same characteristics of the friends and loves of her future life
Set in Australia the story also use Australia's humble begins as a base for our story , which I thought was a great way to inject a little history into a story. Who knows it may even leave u wanting to learn more.
All in all this was a very intreging story and one that will not only get you thinking but also get you talking
