Review: Those That Wake by Jesse Karp

New York City’s spirit has been crushed. People walk the streets with their heads down, withdrawing from one another and into the cold comfort of technology. Teenagers Mal and Laura have grown up in this reality. They’ve never met. Seemingly, they never will.

But on the same day Mal learns his brother has disappeared, Laura discovers her parents have forgotten her. Both begin a search for their families that leads them to the same truth: someone or something has wiped the teens from the memories of every person they have ever known. Thrown together, Mal and Laura must find common ground as they attempt to reclaim their pasts.

This book totally dddrrraaagggeeeddd! I was so happy to be done with this so I could just move on. This book jumped characters so much I just couldn't keep up. There was also a lot of stuff I just didn't understand. Its a very complicated book. Wait this is a young adult book? Are you kidding me?!? Lets not get started on how many time the F-bomb and G.D. is dropped. Totally not appropriate. I'm glad I didn't waste my money on this book. Over all if you can't fall asleep and need some help this is your ticket.
