THE HOLLOW by Jessica Verday

The Hollow (The Hollow, #1)
Add caption
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.

I enjoyed reading The Hollow but i won't say that I love the book. i'm not actually expecting a good read coming from this one because of the mixed reviews I've heard about it but surprisingly I've found myself captivated. It is an easy read, really, because I cannot put the book down. Ironically, I really don't feel any connections to the characters and the plot has many holes and some unanswered questions. And what a bummer! a major cliffhanger ending that makes my toes curl and make me want to read the second book (the haunted) immediately...Yes it is interesting enough for me to pick up the 2nd book and read more about Caspian and Abbey!
