"Abandon" - Meg Cabot - 2011

A modern retelling of the myth of Persephone and Hades, also the first in a trilogy.  "Abandon" packs in tons of the obligatory setup and not much action, leaving me a bit divided.  I had trouble really getting into this book.  It has a storytelling style that grated on my nerves a bit -  a jumpy flashback every few pages.  Also, I kept wishing the main character was slightly older than high school.  But there were one or two swoonworthy moments, so I'm down for the rest...as long as that bed that "big enough for two" gets used in the second book!  Cabot, you're such a tease!
