Awaken takes place in the future. In the future everything is done on a computer or other device. People are suggested to stay home alone not to interact. The book is about Maddie, Maddie’s dad run DS aka digital schools. Like many people Maddie does not like DS. One day when Maddie meets a friend from her study group in person he tells her people are supposed to be together in person not just on a screen. When Maddie gets in trouble she must escape this launches her into a extraordinary adventure, involving rebellion, escapes, and learning what pancakes are. This book is so cool.
