the hourglass door.

i quite liked this book. yes, it seems like mangum jumped the teen romance + something supernatural bandwagon, but it was still good. you could definitely compare it to twilight. a teen girl in her final year of high school meets a mysterious and handsome new student. and strange things start to happen... you get the picture. if you loved twilight, you'll probably like this. it's published by shadow mountain, and all of the praise on the cover is by other authors published by/sold at deseret book. so take their comments with a grain of salt. overall, i liked it, i read it quickly {always a good sign}, and i'm jumping right into the sequel, the golden spiral.

a little about the book: {from the cover}

Abby's senior year of high school is going according to plan: good friends, cute boyfriend, and college applications in the mail. But when Dante Alexander, foreign-exchange student from Italy, steps into her life, he turns it upside down. He's mysterious, and interesting, and unlike anyone she's ever met before. Abby can't deny the growing attraction she feels for him. Nor can she deny the unusual things that seem to happen when Dante is around. Soon Abby finds herself drawn into a mystery whose roots reach into sixteenth-century Florence, and she uncovers a dangerous truth that threatens not only her future but the lives of those she loves.
