Book Review: Abandon


Abandon
Author: Meg Cabot
Publish Date: April 2011
Publisher: Scholastic, Inc.

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.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.
(From GoodReads)

Walking through the bookstore the cover immediately caught the eye. Oh, pretty.  Then the synopsis. Oh, intriguing. Look at the author, I’ve never heard of this woman before. Maybe I should try it out. Yes, I have never heard of Meg Cabot before. 

Pierce is a sweet, confused child. I instantly want to hold her hand and take her under my wing. She’s not as crazy as everyone makes her out to be, but you know that old say, “Here it often enough and it must be true?” Poor Pierce. She tries really hard to keep her life whole and it just seems to keep falling apart the harder she tries. 

Then enter our bad boy, John. Such a simple name. I still wonder if it’s his real name or if that’s a name he just hands to everyone to keep his real name protected. Always dressed in black, always tucked in shadows.  Always appears when he’s needed most. And he has a chip on his shoulder to rival Atlas’s. Throughout the book I kept thinking, seriously what it this guy’s problem. He’s very closed mouthed about his reasoning until the very end. What is it with guys?

 The story was cute. It’s not a difficult read, unless you count the jumping back and forth in time difficult. The plot doesn’t follow a clear concise line (or at least it didn’t seem that way to me). It’s more like pieces of a puzzle being handed out at different intervals and you have to wait until the end to put them all together. I’ll be on the lookout for the second book just to see what happens next. ^_^ In the meantime I'm going to look up the other Meg Cabot books. ^_^
