Karen Healey

   When We Wake Giveaway

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?

Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be our own.

    I'm looking forward to reading about how and why Tegan was cryogenically frozen. I think the idea is both fascinating and bizarre, so it would be interesting to read about. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

    I'm looking forward to why this is so intriguing to me. <3

  1. I want to see the dystopian worldbuilding in this novel; the summary sounds very interesting :)

  1. I want to find out why it was Tegan who was frozen, and I do love a good dystopian ;)

  1. This looks like it might bring on the waterworks. I love timetravel fics, because people go to far off place, but this is harder. This is a 16 yo girl waking up in the future with no friends or family and no maybe of getting back to her own time. It's a different dynamic than I'm used to seeing, so I'm really intrigued.

  1. I love reading dystopian. and this sounds interesting.
