About book When She Woke (2011)

This book contains controversial takes on so many topics: reproductive rights, punitive justice, politics, faith and theology. The main character's evolving sense of self spoke to me as someone who was raised in a similarly repressive religion. She and I ended up at different places (me without so many harrowing events), but many of her stages rang true to me. I was satisfied with the ending, but it always bugs me a tad when things are too neat at the end of a novel.This is the kind of book I love, one that leaves me itching to talk to someone about it. a young adult science fiction reboot of The Scarlet Letter. it starts off at a good clip but then wallows a bit in the middle as the protagonist becomes little more than a passive receptacle for persecution; however, in the last third of the book, both the story and the protagonist recuperate and exceed themselves. overall a very strong book dealing with the darker side of america's protestant soul, gender equality, abortion, and independence.

Do You like book When She Woke (2011)?

Interesting concept...way too much Christian stuff for this non-Christian.

This book is a classic example of a fantastic concept poorly executed.
