This week, we are so excited to be teaming up with Scholastic to bring you a fantastic week-long feature on Abandon by Meg Cabot, a new YA series from the best-selling author that’s inspired by the myth of Persephone. We have some great goodies planned for this week — including an exclusive Q&A with Meg, your chance to win a copy of the book, fun ways to tie-in Abandon into the classroom and lots more.
But first, here’s more about Abandon:
Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can’t help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she’s never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she’s moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can’t. Because even here, he finds her. That’s how desperately he wants her back. She knows he’s no guardian angel, and his dark world isn’t exactly heaven, yet she can’t stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.
Here’s the official book trailer:
