Review: Cabel's Story by Lisa McMann

Author: Lisa McMann
Pages: 32
Publisher: Free e-book short story from Simon & Schuster
Series or Standalone: Short story in the Dream Catcher series
Genre: YA Romance
Reading Level: 13 yrs old+
Dominant Themes: Romance, Dreams

A free online story by Lisa McMann. A companion to the first Dream Catcher novel, Wake, this is Cabel's perspective of the field trip that Janie and he took with their English class.

This online short story that Simon and Schuster offered is simply the retelling of events from Lisa McMann’s novel Wake told from the perspective of Cabel, the male love interest and main character. It was a short, but told in Lisa’s distinctive writing style that made it to the point and still managed to get a lot in.

Reading things from Cabel’s point of view adds depth to how he and Janie come together. We only got how Janie felt about things. Now we’re getting his anger at having his personal thoughts violated, and eventually his crush on her slowly burgeoning forth. All it took was a door knob to the gut…

If you’ve read Wake, I definitely recommend reading Cabel’s Story. It’s  a sweet addition to the Dream Catcher series, especially now that the series is over. I give this 5 out of 5 stars.
