This book most definitely did not put me to sleep in anyway. Actually Asleep by Wendy Raven McNair aroused every emotion in my body. I went from emotional highs to emotional lows. Who knew someone could pack so much into one book.
In this wonderful tale a young female, Adisa Summers(Uh- Dee- Sah), finds out so much information about her life that a typical young African-American woman wouldn’t be able to handle. Adisa is no where near normal, even with her childhood obsessions she is stronger than she can even imagine, but to figure that out a mysterious boy comes a long and awakens her. These two end up in a relationship that takes flight, literally!! Micah Alexander is a blessing and a curse all at the same time for Adisa, but ends up being her saving grace, more than once.
Micah leaves a young African-American woman like myself wonder if I’m going to find the perfect guy for me who can fly me to the moon and back, love me and my faults, and never cease to protect me. I fear that I might have to continue to read to feel those feelings.
This hard to put down novel had so many twists and turns, that kept the story moving. I never felt the story was going to slow or that I wanted to skip over chapters. I ended up finishing this book in one day only stopping to have dinner with mom. I really don’t know what to say other than this novel had me floored with just how amazing it is, especially every time I told my mom how amazing it is. I highly recommend this novel to EVERYONE of ALL ages. I cannot wait to read the next novel, but it’s not out yet 😦 . Until then, keep turning the pages!
