Abandon by Meg Cabot
Pierce knows what it's like to die,
because she has done it before.
It starts off as a normal day, like any other. When Pierce sees a little bird in danger, drowning in her pool, she wants to help it. So, she walks over to her pool but her scarf gets tangled in her feet. She hits her head and drowns. The last thing she remembers seeing? The bird flying away.
After this scary experience, Pierce finds herself somewhere completely knew. She doesn't have a clear memory of what happened, or how she got there. There are two lines facing a long, ominous river, and there are mostly elderly people there, not many people Pierce's age. Where is she? She goes to ask someone for help, and sees a familiar face. He takes her away and informs her that her boat has left and she will need to stay with him, forever.
After she gets out of this situation, how will she ever be normal again? She has died, and come back. That's different that most teens problems...
I loved this book, it was gripping, dark, scary and left you on edge. I can't wait for the next book in this series, Underworld, to come out!
