[Review] Swift by Heather London

BB Book Tours
Book info:
Meredith Martin is being hunted by evil, for something she is destined to become, but knows nothing about.
 After graduating from high school, Meredith is ready to leave the place that has been a constant reminder of what happened to her as a child. She was just eight years old when her family died in a mysterious car accident, taking the secret of her destiny with them. It’s not until a new family moves to town that she realizes leaving may not be as easy as she once thought.
Meredith feels an instant connection towards the Harpers, especially the good-looking, mysterious Blake and his overly friendly sister, Abby. After a series of bizarre events that happen too often to be coincidence, Meredith begins to realize that she is at the center of something larger than herself—possibly the same thing that killed her parents and twin sister many years ago. Nightmarish visions and resurfacing memories push Meredith closer to Blake, leading her to discover her destiny and other buried secrets.
 As Meredith tries to understand her new world, she will be put to the ultimate test, and her strength and courage will be challenged more than she ever imagined.

My Review:   Meredith is trying to find her place in the world.  She lives in a small town with her aunt because her parents and twin sister died in an accident 10 years ago.  How awful that must be, losing your family - especially a twin.  In the beginning Meredith is crying at her family's graves.  While there she meets Abby, who is new to town.  The two quickly become friends.  Meredith's love interest in the story is Abby's brother, Blake.
Part of the finding her place in the world, involves some weridness.  Meredith is discovering that there is more to who she is, and more to the deaths of her family than she thought.  With Abby and Blake to help her, Meredith begins to uncover her destiny.
My favorite character in this book is Abby.  She is just awesome!  She's the kind of person that I'd love to have as a friend.  I like Blake - I just wish that there was more build-up in he and Abby's romance.
Overall the book is very well written.  It has just the right pace.  I didn't notice many errors in grammar, which is always a plus.  The book ends nice and neatly, and could be a stand alone, but there will be a follow up book.  I will be waiting to read it!
