Gone (Wake Trilogy Series #3) by Lisa McMann

Caution: This is the third book in the wake series and will most likely contain spoilers if you have not read the previous two.

Gone by Lisa McMann
Publication Date: February 9, 2010
Versions: hardcover, audio

Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Things should be great for Janie—she has graduated from high school and is spending her summer with Cabel, the guy she’s totally in love with. But deep down she’s panicking about how she’s going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people’s dreams is really starting to take its toll.



Things get even more complicated when she meets her father for the very first time—and he’s in a coma. As Janie uncovers his secret past, she begins to realize that the choice thought she had has more dire consequences than she ever imagined.

This was defiantly a bittersweet read for me due to the fact that seven words are printed on the top that clearly say: The final book in the Wake trilogy. Deep down, I was hoping she would continue the series past just a trilogy but this comfirms that she most likely will not. The sweet part of this book was that it was wonderful. Janie's life continues on and she now has to deal with more stuff including her dad and her blindness to be. The book was written just as good as the other two (Wake and Fade) but seemed more grown up in a way probably due to the growing up of the characters.

Will I reread it?
When I get over my sadness (haha) yes.

A perfect ending to a great series. I will look back at Janie and Cabel and long for more from them but I guess I have to take what I can get and three books is great.
