Waiting on Wednesday - Abandon

This one's a year away so no cover details yet. Meg Cabot's new paranormal trilogy begins with Abandon:

PUBLISHER(S): US – Scholastic, UK – Macmillan
DELIVERY DATE: August 2010
BLURB: The myth of Persephone’s abduction by the ruler of the Underworld is given a modern twist in this new trilogy by Meg Cabot.
In Book One, ABANDON, we meet popular, outgoing Max Harper. Max is the only one who saw the man standing beside her grandmother’s deathbed in Bay Island Hospital. No one--not Max’s parents, her beloved aunt Susan, her little sister Mina, best friend Rachel, or even boyfriend Nate Rector--believes in the leather-coated apparition fourteen-year-old Max insists she saw. No one except Angela, Rector High’s token Goth, whom everyone assumes is crazy anyway. But Max isn’t about to give up. She’s determined to find the man she’s convinced is in some way responsible for her grandmother’s death.

Taken from Marsh Agency Rights pdf.

The publishing date is not yet confirmed according to Meg Cabot's forum:

Since Abandon is set to be released as a three book trilogy all at once (or with each book released just a few months apart), the release date may be put off once again since I'm not done with the second and third books in the series yet.


  1. Oh, this is really interesting! I didn't know about it. Thank you! It sounds great.

  2. That's actually the first time I've seen a summary for Abandon. It sounds so amazing. I love Meg Cabot's books.

  3. I had a dig around the web after reading about it on Meg's website (after reading Airhead). I confess I don't know the story of Persephone...

  4. When the HELL is this going to come out?
    I swear I can't wait! I've pratically read all of her books. It's getting tiring waiting.

  5. i must say this doesn't actually sound like the story of Persephone?? unless the grandmother represents Persephone? and Max represents the mother who set out to find her????? but it does sound good!! love meg's writing!!
