In Wild Awake, Hilary T. Smith's exhilarating and heart-wrenching YA debut novel, seventeen-year-old Kiri Byrd has big plans for her summer without her parents. She intends to devote herself to her music and win Battle of the Bands with her bandmate and best friend, Lukas. Perhaps then, in the excitement of victory, he will finally realize she's the girl of his dreams.

But a phone call from a stranger shatters Kiri's plans. He says he has her sister's stuff—her sister, Sukey, who died five years ago. This call throws Kiri into a spiral of chaos that opens old wounds and new mysteries.

Like If I Stay and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Wild Awake explores loss, love, and what it means to be alive.

Editorial Reviews

“Exquisite…Smith adeptly captures the darkness and betrayal of a family secret. Kiri’s narrative is heart-wrenching….The story is beautifully written and engaging, and Kiri’s voice is a powerful reminder that life can be full of pain and joy and that to embrace both is good for the soul.”
