We’ve all been through that phase in our life when suddenly, something big happens, and all of a sudden, life turns upside down… And even if it is something that we haven’t been through, we all certainly fear it.
Well, this is exactly what the protagonist of the book Abandon by Meg Cabot goes through.
The first of a trilogy, Abandon is a thrilling and captivating read. The book is a well-written novel. I have to mention that in the beginning, the book can be a little confusing to read and follow. This is mainly because of some of the parts that the readers are not privy to, yet. But as these plot points get revealed, the book gets less confusing and more captivating.
The book follows the story of Pierce, who moves to a new town and has to settle down and start her life, all over again. We come to know that she had previously been in an accident and died, and well, came back to life, thanks to the paramedics. The rest of the story, of course, follows Pierce and her journey. Did she really die? If she did, how did she get back? What did she do there? What must she do now?
Well, the book is certainly a captivating read with an intricate story line. A must read for any fantasy fanatic.
I’d give it a 3.5/5.
