Abandon by Meg Cabot
Publisher: Scholastic Inc
Publication Date: 4/26/2011
Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can’t help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she’s never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she’s moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid. Only she can’t. Because even here, he finds her. That’s how desperately he wants her back. She knows he’s no guardian angel, and his dark world isn’t exactly heaven, yet she can’t stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
This book was sent to me by Story Siren who donated it to the book baskets I”m putting together for the silent auction that I’m attending to! So when I saw the book out of the package, I knew this book was in to read pile and this was my chance to read it before it would be shipped off for the auction! I’m glad I got a chance to read it.
The book was filled with mystery and fantasy. Romance seems to pop up a bit but that becomes consistent later in the book, I think. I love how through out the book Pierce realizes there’s something more than meets the eye of what is happening to her. Pierce is a character that draws danger to her as well as drawing John in.
Memories of Pierce come and go throughout the book which helped me to understand where Pierce is right now along with John in the picture. The relationship between John and Pierce seems be hot and cold which I dare wonder if it will meet up in the middle in the next book? And the danger that is after Pierce makes me wonder how that will go in the next book? Will she be safe or no?
John, I am curious of his past and how he came to be who he is. Hope to see that in the next book.
The book left me wanting to know what as going to happen to Pierce and John. Plus the description of the necklace sounds amazing which makes me want to have one! The second book is in my To Read Pile.
