In the beginning of the Borrowing Abby Grace series by Kelly Green, seventeen-year-old Abby wakes up in the back of a van, with no idea how she got there. She manages to escape her kidnappers, but learns that she’s left her brother behind. The thing is, Abby doesn’t recall having a brother; in fact, she doesn’t seem to have any memory at all. She realizes that she’s become a shadow: a soul sent to embody people who need her help. She gets in, solves the problem, and gets out . . . or at least that’s how it should work–it’s not usually that simple. Lucky for Abby, she has her (very cute!) guardian, Will, to help her out.
