Abandon by Meg Cabot - Review

Here's Amanda's review of Abandon, which looks so, so good. Can't wait to get to it.

Pierce Oliviera knows all about dying-- she did it when she was 15--at the bottom of their pool in the middle of winter, tangled up in her red -tassled scarf. But since the doctors brought her back, nothing has really been the same. And trouble is a constant companion. Now, almost two years later, her parents are divorced and Pierce and her mother have relocated to Isla Huesos--the Island of Bones. But a fresh start is hard to find when your past follows, showing up in the Island cemetery calling your name. (By the way, his name is John, and he just might be the ruler of the Underworld, and he certainly was the one you left behind when you came back to life). Pierce has lots of questions about her NDE (near-death-experience) and absolutely no answers as trouble starts anew on the Island. With death all around and love lurking in the shadows, Pierce must tread carefully--there may not be a next-time. This is the first book in the Abandon trilogy-- a modern telling of the myth of Persephone and the Underworld.
