Pierce had a life changing experience, a big one where she tripped, hit her head and fell into an icy cold swimming pool. She survived but it was all because she escaped the underworld and she knew it was real.She was there in the underworld after she fell, she felt cold and there were a lot of people lining up. She didn't know where to go and somehow she had found him. He took her to his home and made her tea but she threw it in his face and ran away through a door and back to earth.

So much have changed since the accident, Pierce is in a Welcome to Isla Huesos party because her mom and her had moved there. This was because her parents got a divorce and her mom wanted to come back to the island to study some birds. Her cousin Alex was questioning her about the light, whether she had saw one. It was stressful because people would ask her that and she could not tell the truth. She did try to say something but she end up going to a therapist. The party had her mother's family, Uncle Chris, Alex and her grandmother but it felt suffocating to her. Pierce told her mom she had to go and so she hop on her bicycle and kept cycling. She ended up at the cemetery somehow and he was there. She tried her best to avoid him because she was afraid and he showed up there.

Abandon by Meg Cabot is about a girl who came back from the dead where she met someone from the underworld. The boy wanted her and he wants to bring her back there. I have to say I really like this book and it's for the young adults audience. The previous Meg Cabot book that I read was Overbite and I always buy her new stories which always entertain me. This one is a new trilogy and I'm loving the first book. I have to say I did not research the book hence I was not aware of what story this would be. Of course, it would be a love story but what other elements were involved that I do not know. After finishing the book, I can say there's a bit of mystery as the characters slowly unravel a bit of history and a bit of danger surfacing.

I don't read a lot of young adult but it's a breath of fresh air to me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lately this is the kind of books that has become popular which are stories having vampires, demon, magic and all sorts. Even though it's common but it was not boring to me. I finished the book quite quickly because I wanted to know how the book ended for our heroine and hero. Since the fonts are big and it's not thick I don't mind reading it again in the future for a bit of romance that's forbidden. I'm looking forward to the next book to know how Pierce and her "Prince" advances after having an unexpected ending.
