The Hollow by Jessica Verday
Okay, so I'm usually not into the whole sci-fi book thing, but because of twilight and harry potter, I gave this one a chance. I decided to post this now because I already read the book and I wanted to get a post out there to tie you guys over until I get a chance to read The Midnight Twins. The description of The Hollow is:
When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead?and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.
Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.
For being a Sci-Fi book, this one was pretty good! When I read it, I stayed up till 4am finishing it. I thought it was a pretty cool story and I loved the part about Abbey's perfume making! It makes me want to try it myself. This book was definitely a good one and I recommend it to any Sci-Fi book lover out there. Even non Sci-Fi book lovers, just not as much, haha. Anyway, see you would think that I would catch on to the twist of this book before the end, but I didn't. When I told my friend about it half way through the book though, he spat out a whole scenario that he suspected to be true. He was right, ughhh. It is a pretty interesting twist and I can't wait to read the next one to find out more. Guess you'll have to read it for yourself to see what I mean. ;]
