“Happy Birthday Cassie... You’re a fucking idiot.”
It’s the morning of Cassie’s twenty-sixth birthday, and she wakes to find herself in someone’s front garden with no recollection of how she got there. As Cassie struggles to retrace the night and get home, she moves between memories of her dubious past behaviour, and the chain of events that led to her present circumstances.
Awakening is a fierce, funny, painfully honest journey that leads to shocking truths and a self-awareness Cassie has been avoiding for years. Can she heal old wounds, address her self-destructive tendencies and find the courage to do the right thing? Or has she cried wolf too many times?
At a time when awareness of the voices of sexual assault victims is on the rise, Awakening unpicks the moment of realisation when Cassie is forced to face up to painful truths, and speak up to wrong doing in order to protect future generations of young women.
