Und schon wieder hat mich Amazon mit einem Buch beglückt. Montag kam „Awaken“ an, dass in Deutschland auch als „Die Rebellion der Maddie Freeman“ erhältlich ist.

Katie Kacvinsky – Awaken

Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Work, school, even dating can be done from home, and people do not venture out. Maddie plays soccer, and likes the physicality and camaraderie of team sports, but for the most part, she’s okay with solitary digital life – until she meets Justin.
Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her.
Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her – a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way of live. And waybe it’s his attentiveness, or the physical closeness of actually being with someone, or just that he’s very good-looking, but Maddie is definitely drawn to Justin.
Then Maddie uncovers the truth. Justin belongs to a group that wants to change the world, starting with destroying Digital School. Madeline’s father created Digital School, and the group knows she doesn’t fully support her dad’s work. Plus, she can kach into his computer.
Maddie feels used. Is Justin only with her because of who her father is? Or does he really have feelings for her as well?
