About this item

Age Range: 8 and up


Fear drives me forward as I rush down a rocky path in Jerusalem, trying to sort things out even as dusk makes it harder to hurry.

Am I really an American girl, cast back to the time of Jesus? Or a delusional Jewish teen, plagued with visions of a place called America, thousands of years in the future?

I don’t know anymore.

But I do know that something awful is about to happen to my Jesus: they’re going to arrest him tonight, and kill him.

No one believes me; they think I’m crazy. So it’s up to me to save him, hurrying down this dark path toward Gethsemane, toward the turning point of all history, the attempt to kill Jesus . . . toward the uncertainty of whether I can actually manage to change the future.

Amazing Book
Awakening is one of the most inspirational books I've ever read. This book blends life in Jerusalem with modern characters in the biblical settings leading up to and including the crucifixion. AMAZING! You are left with a complete understanding why Jesus died for us, just as the main character discovers after failed attempts to stop it. I adored the main character and the author does an amazing job capturing the teen's attitude, thoughts and motivation as she "walks" with Jesus. After reading it myself first, I then read it aloud for my husband and 11 year old. We laughed, we cried, we sat in silent reflection. This book would be an outstanding companion for teens preparing for confirmation and also a wonderful Lenten reflection during Holy Week, helping us walk with Jesus.

I got this and I read it in one night. I konw it's not real, but I was jealous of Ronnie all the same. It's incredible. An awesome tale of time travel, trying to change history, and Jesus all in one. I think everyone should read it.
