Review: The Hollow by Jessica Verday

Author: Jessica Verday

Page Count: 512

Book description from Goodreads:

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.
Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.


My Review

Abby has some serious issues that needs to be resolved, instead she ignores them completely and go about life as if nothing is wrong. Her best friend, Kristen is missing, but it isn't until they find her body that Abby accepts the reality and starts to slowly hit rock bottom.

She and Kristen has a favorite place next to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, the river Kristen died in. One day Abby just randomly meets a boy, Caspian, there with blond hair with a black streak, they start to meet alot there.

Halloween night, prom night, Abby goes into hysterics goes to the river and gets into the rushing water, Caspian sees her there and begs of her to come out of the water. When she does he walks her home.The next day they meet at the library, but after what happens that day Caspian trys to avoid Abby the best he can.

I liked this book, but I didn't like it awhole lot because it did have slow parts in it. I think the next book will be alot better. Abby was very weird, she needed help badly. I hope she'll be better in the last two books. Caspian is really sweet but you don't really have much on him.

*start of spoiler* I think the reason why Caspian could touch her is because it was his anniversary of his death, BUT I have no clue why that would happen! *end of spoiler* I really liked that Abby made perfume, I thought that was so cool. Hopefully I'll be able to get the next book because I'd really like to see how Caspian thinks hes going to make things work!
