The Shadow is the first episode of Borrowing Abby Grace series. The story starts with a girl, who wakes up in the back of a van. She doesn't know why she is there or who she is. Now she will need to find out, with the help of an estrange but good looking guy, Will, the reason of why she is there and what she needs to do. The answer will surprise more than one. Abby Grace has a mission, and she needs to complete it in order to move forward. Where? She even doesn't know it yet.
I don't want to talk too much about the plot because I think it's awesome with capital A, and I consider everybody should read the book and discover the story by themselves. Lovers of YA books, that enjoy stories full of suspense, action and supernatural elements, will love this book, specially because I think it has everything a book needs.
First, like I said before, an amazing plot.The book is full of mystery that makes you read and read and read until you finish it and go running to buy the next one, because you need to know what is going to happen next! What is going to happen to Abby? Will she go home? Will she remember? Is she d…? There are so many questions that need to be solved!
Second, long story short. Sometimes you read a story that has more than 400 hundreds pages, and you get bored with so many descriptions and so many details and so many things that most of the time, are not necessary! But in the case of Abby Grace, the story is short, is an episode of only 47 pages, but with a really well developed idea. You don't feel rush, or a brusque ending. Of course, you want to read more, but you get a felling that the book ended in the way it was supposed to finish.
And last but not least, lovely characters. I love Abby. Abby Grace is a really smart girl, and even though she is not in her best moment she has time to make you smile and laugh with some of her ideas or when she is mad at Will, or when she does something a little bit crazy or risky. She is strong and brave, and she doesn't stop until she discovers the truth, she has the gift to make everything go well again. That's why she was selected…because she is perfect for the job!
Ah! And I almost forget! The covers are amazing! They tell you a lot about the story! : )
