When I first read about ‘Obscured’ I was immediately interested. This book sounded like a very fun read and the cover just really looks interesting and mysterious. So I signed up to read and review it.
In ‘Obscured’ we meet Abby Martin. Abby is sixteen years old and has just moved with her mom to Arizona. Not only is she trying to get used to her new hometown, and her parents’ divorce, but she is also starting High School. Abby isn’t really looking forward to her new school and meeting new people, but on her first day in High School, Abby soon learns that there are a lot of nice people who want to be her friend.
One of the first people Abby meets is Eli, a mysterious guy who becomes her best friend almost form the beginning. But Eli has a strange request, he wants Abby to stay away from Pete. But Abby likes Pete from the very first moment he started talking to her, and nothing seems wrong with him.
But Abby soon learns to get used to her new life, but also that people can hide all kinds of stuff.
This book was a very nice read and I enjoyed every page. The main character Abby was immediately very likeable. Abby loves to read, and she is very serious about her schoolwork since she wants to get into an Ivy league college. Abby also seems to be very mature, she helps her mom out with cooking, always makes sure her mom knows where she is and she really tries to do her best at school.
Eli was also a character I really liked. He was really mysterious and seemed to keep some secrets from the very beginning, but somehow I felt like he could be trusted. The friendship Abby and Eli developed was just adorable and I really loved them.
The writing in this book is very prescriptive and easy to follow. This was good because I wanted to keep on reading, but at times it also felt like the story went a little to fast. Abby’s days are almost described to the detail, and although that was fun.. I sometimes wished the author didn’t write everything with so much detail, so the time wouldn’t need to go by so fast.
But this wasn’t so bad that I didn’t enjoy this book. Not at all!! This book was fun and I loved the characters and the unique turn this book took. This book definitely made me want to read more and more about Abbie and Eli.
I really hope there will be a next book, so the story of these characters can continue. I definitely want to read more.
