Publisher Comments:

When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead…and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. 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. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her—one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.

“Spectacular! The Hollow keeps you reading from beginning to end without coming up for air.” --L.J. Smith, bestselling author of The Vampire Diaries and Night World


When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes, everyone thinks Kristen is dead. Soon, however, Abbey learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend.

This is an amazing beginning to a series. I cannot compare this book to any other books I have read. The Hollow does a good job giving a backstory to it's story. Jessica Verday makes sure that you know what is happening and makes sure you are not confused with the story. This is unlike any other book I have read.

Contemporary, Sleepy Hollow

Abbey’s best friend Kristen vanishes suddenly at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, and everyone is quick to accept that Kristen is dead and that it might not have been an accident. Abbey publically goes through the motions of mourning but privately she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Out of nowhere at Kristen’s funeral she meets Caspian, a gorgeous boy that keeps appearing in Abbey’s life. Caspian has secrets of his own but with Caspian Abbey feels normal again. He also makes her feel special.

As Abbey starts to accept things she learns a secret about Kristen that has her question whether or not she ever really knew her best friend. How when they shared everything could Kristen keep silent about so much? While reeling from what seems as a betrayal on the part of Kristen Abbey learns some more truths that nearly undo her completely. Truths that will challenge her new love for Caspian and doubting her own sanity.

This is a wonderful twist on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This story is contemporary but the original legend influences the current story and makes this one a must read. The town comes to life for readers in ways that will have the reader able to completely picture the town and characters in this story. With every word that is read the reader will be drawn more and more into the story until the very end. It will also have the reader wanting the next book in the trilogy just to see what will happen next and just how many more twists the story will take. This has a wonderful mystery woven seamlessly with the romance and will keep the reader engrossed to the point of hating to put the book down for any reason. This is a Young Adult book that will have readers all ages completely enthralled with the story.

very good book with twists that take you well past were you would think a book would go. although dark in nature this book has a rather unusual ending but over all very well written book.
