Book Review: The Shadow (Borrowing Abby Grace, #1) by Kelly Green

Genre: Young Adult (Mystery)

Abby Grace is a Shadow. That means she is placed in bodies of teenagers with major  problems. It's her job to solve those problems. When she's pushed in the life of, Brooke, a teenager who's been kidnapped, she doesn't know who she is or why she's there. She soon figures out that Brooke wasn't the only one who was kidnapped. Her brother is missing too.

When I first read the summary, I immediately thought of Quantum Leap, which was my favorite show growing up. I was excited to start reading this book, however I had a hard time getting into it. It is a short story, and I felt like by the time it really started to take off it was over. I would love to know more about the characters involved as well as have more details about what was going on. This is the first book in the series, so I'm sure you learn more as it progresses, but I would've liked a little something more to pull me into the plot. I didn't feel that connection.  I enjoyed Kelly Green's writing style. The cover is fantastic and fits perfectly with the book. When you have a few hours to spare, this is a nice little story to help you pass the time.

This book was sent to me from the author for review. The opinions are my own.

  1. Good review, Gabby. You have such a polite way with reviews that are less than what you expected. Even still, what you did say positive I'm sure will draw readers in.


Thank your for stopping by. Please comment! I'd love to hear from you!
