Awake at Dawn – C.C. Hunter
Supernatural, fantasy, young adult, fiction.
Kylie is still wondering of what supernatural creature she is, but she did find out other truths along the way. Her father isn’t really her father and her biological father was the dead army man she occasionally had seen. She uses the information of her birth father to try to find his family or well her extended family to find answers of who and what she really is. Another ghost appears in her life asking for her help. As she attends camp activities, who and what she is becomes even more confusing. What doesn’t help is that there is something sinister going on at the camp.
I found this sequel very intriguing and regularly paced as the first one. I believe firmly in that a story shouldn’t be dragged out kind of like how this author is doing. This is an exception because this adds onto the narrative of the main character going on a journey of self-exploration and self-assessing. I sometimes can relate onto the main character because I occasionally have an identity crisis and or existential crisis. Kylie explores that grey area that is a new concept to her and her friends helping her understand that grey area. This is great to read.
