Reviews for Wake Me Up Inside: John Robert Colombo, author/anthologist and Canada's Master Gatherer had this to say: In Praise of Wake Me Up Inside: “It was an amazing feeling .... ” So begins this lively short first novel written by Lee Bice-Matheson... then it transports the reader to “the Manor” where life is rather different, both demanding and rewarding! The author deserves to be congratulated, for she has found a style that moves along in a sprightly fashion. She spares the reader the descriptive passages found in most first novels in favour of rewarding the reader with reams of lively speech. The result is that young Paige is very much alive, she enters into relationships, and she turns out to be something of an acrobat, for she leaps off the page! Amazon reviewer declared 'Move over James Patterson, there's a new kid in town! 5 stars C. Harkin, Fitzhenry & Whiteside said 'This portion of a tale of the supernatural connects the world that teens will know and be familiar with to the terrifying concept of ghosts and the unexplained.'
