While most people believe that Kristen’s death was an accident, Abbey suspects that something fishy is going on. It was a charming tale that put a good spin on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Anyway, they meet up a lot here and there, mostly at the graveyard or river. 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. I would suggest this if you are interested in reading a non-scary, romantic somewhat watered downmodern day sleepy hollow.
Oh, and I still can’t find a moral to the story. It was verray charming tale that put a good spin on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I remember loving the big reveal and it was why I loved the book so much when I was younger, but as someone who has read more books, this is rushed and poorly plotted.

Goodreads Summary A love like no other Maybe I’m just hypercritical because it’s been a few years since high school for me, maybe I’ve crossed over that bridge and can’t really connect because that part of my life is over Thank goodness for Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey’s life.
He seems completely indifferent to Abbey most of the time, and by the end I find myself almost forgetting anything he’s done only chapters before and even worse caring if their ‘relationship’ will work out. He was born in St.
Abby spends a lot of the time wondering what is going on with him, as was I because nothing was going on. Take an active roll in finding out, gosh darn it! Even more so when Kristen is practically dismissed for the next couple of chapters while Abbey continues to swoon over Caspian.
I wanted her to take a stand on something, ANYTHING, instead of drift through days having meaningless arguments with her mother about the prom and having nightmares that had no purpose in furthering the plot. We dealt with that for about a chapter then nothing more until seemingly the last few chapters only about a line or two.
There is no action, and the only fantasy elements make an appearance in the last 40 — 30 pages. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he’s the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again The dialogue is awkward, the writing choppy.

However, the reason it got two stars was because it was nothing new, and I actually got pretty bored reading the book. I remember starting one when I was nine I lasted about a week ; it went pretty much like this: Tina was still in her teens when she burst upon the national scene by starring on Broadway in the critically acclaimed box-office success “Li’l Abner”, based on the famous And I’m pretty sure that if I see the sequel on the bookshelves of Cole’s, I’ll pick it up and spend a few dollars on it.
One of the most underrated book series I have every read. I can see why I loved this years ago though. The parents were either, not around or being abnormaly jessiva. This picked my curiosity so I took it from the shelf and started to read.

If you’ve ever seen the movie Sleepy Hollow or the animated disney version, which i found to be just as scary when i was like ten or something lolthen you know that this story is disturbing and creepy, and The Hollow being almost completely based on the short story by Washington Irving, Jessica Verday could’ve made better use of the legend.
He started out promising; kind, sweet, a bit secretive for my taste, and edgy.
He died moive years before in a car accident. I thought this vervay was going to be about Abbey trying to find out how and why her best friend died, but there was nothing but romance and Abbey going on her daily life, watching her break down and cry and mourn for her dead best friend. But was it done well? So, it Actual rating: But anyway, it was a cool aspect of the story nonetheless.
Still, I expect an exciting story, target audience or not, and this one failed to deliver. The beginning of the book is great.
