Staff Reviews



Kiri's parents are gone for the summer and she's got big plans: to win The Battle of the Bands with her best friend (and secret crush) Lukas. What really does happen is that Kiri gets a phone call from a guy who says he has her sister's stuff…but her sister's been gone for five years. What's Kiri to do? Hilary Smith has created deeply true writing and beautifully flawed characters who don't always make the best choices. In spite of this, I'm rooting for them to succeed and to find peace in their lives. For grades 9 and up.

Description


Seventeen-year-old Kiri Byrd is home alone for six weeks while her parents are away on a summertime anniversary cruise. Kiri, a musician, intends to spend the time in a disciplined blur of devotion to her Art. But somehow, that's not exactly what happens.

Praise for Wild Awake…


“Hilary T. Smith’s absorbing debut whispers with mystery, drawing us into a world of dead sisters, family secrets, midnight bicycle rides, music, madness and art—ultimately exploring that most profound mystery of all: love.”
