Wide Awake - Shelly Crane 2.5 stars

This is a story about Emma, hit and run victim, who wakes after spending six months in coma. By her side are her parents and Mason, her very hot and young physical therapist. She doesn't remember anyone from her life and her parents try really hard to make her be that same old Emmie. The girl who wore pink and a ponytail. The girl who was the Queen B in her high school. The girl who was selfish, shallow and cruel to others. Andrew, her boyfriend is also there and he's trying to make Emma love him again but it's not working because she starts having feelings for the guy who helped her every day, Mason.

Wide Awake was a solid story up until Emma left the hospital and returned home. Her parents were obsessed with trying to get her to love everything Emmie loved and Emma didn't object because she didn't wanted to disappoint them. She went along with everything and it made me so mad because I strongly dislike people who are afraid to show the world who they really are. Who has time to pretend to be anything but themselves?

Emma's friends were awful. Like those bullies who never stop torturing people who aren't 'as good as them'. I will never say, oh well, they're just kids and they're insecure, that's why they bully those who can't defend themselves. No! No! No! Bullies have corrupt souls, they enjoy torturing other people cause it's their mission to make others hate themselves so they would rather take their own life than endure it any longer. They deserve to burn in hell. There was this one scene with which seemed over the top for because I don't think there's no way any of them would get away with it but they did.

I didn't like the romance either. It was sweet but I didn't feel anything while reading it. Emma and Mason were apologizing all the time. I am sorry for this, I am sorry for that and it kept going, on and on.
