Reawakened begins with Lilliana Young is a smart New York City high school student, raised in wealth by non-existent, but overbearing parents. Lilli has heeded her parent’s advice her whole life and stayed safely within the boundaries they have established. By doing as they say, she is afforded relative “freedom” to do what she wishes. Self-described as careful and thoughtful, the Phoebe we find at the beginning of this novel is surprisingly sheltered for someone who has free reign on the world—this is partly her overbearing parent’s fault, but also Phoebe’s fault for never daring to challenge their desires. She’s lonely and feels trapped by this life of relative freedom. She has yet to come out of her shell.
