The latest book I just finished reading was, Abandon By Meg Cabot. I’m in love with it! What really hooked me in this book is that it is a modern story of the myth about Persephone and I love Greek myths. I had just finished reading the story of Persephone in class. I finished the book in less than two days, it was one of the best books I have ever read.
Pierce is one the main characters in the book. Two years ago she died by hitting her head after a fall causing her to slip into her pool and drown. However, she came back to life. What did she see when she was dead? A light.
She went to the place that you visit before your final destination. There she runs into a guy that she met when she was a kid at her grandfather’s funeral. She soon finds out that his name is John and he is in charge of the ‘between’. John took Pierce to the place he lives and told her that she would be stuck there forever, but she escaped. John continues to show up when she least expects it.
After Pierce moves the worst starts happening… She finds out that John is in love with her and that she is falling in love with him just as much. But does that come with a price? Find out by reading Abandon!
