Earthbound (Earthbound, #1)Synopsis:

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told.

Tavia immediately searches for answers, desperate to determine why she feels so drawn to a boy she hardly knows. But when Tavia discovers that the aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents’ death may have actually been responsible for the plane crash that killed them–and that she may have been the true intended victim–she flees for the safety of Camden, Maine, where the boy she sees in her visions instructs her to go.

Now, Tavia is on the run with no one to trust. No one, that is, except for her best friend and longtime crush, Benson.

Tavia feels torn between the boy who mysteriously comes to her at night and the boy who has been by her side every step of the way. But what Tavia doesn’t know is that the world is literally falling apart and that to save it she will have to unite with the boy in her visions. Only problem? To do so would mean rejecting Benson’s love. And that’s the one thing Tavia Michaels swore she’d never do.

I’m looking forward to this book because I have seen quite a few of early reviews of this book and they seem to really like it. It’s actually a little bit surprising that it isn’t exactly published yet.

What are you waiting for?

What do you think?

  • I am really looking forward to reading this book! It sounds really interesting, and I’ve never read anything by this author before. :) Great pick!

      Thanks! Yeah, she’s a new author to me too (hell, she could be a debut author for all I know) but I have seen some pretty good reviews already for this. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  • This cover reminds me of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. I haven’t read anything by Pike, but I’ve heard she’s an amazing author. I have this one on my wishlist! Great pick 😀
