Gravity, by Abigail Boyd, is about a high school student, Ariel, who is trying to get over the disappearance of her best friend, Jenna. In the time Jenna has been missing she has alienated herself, and feels alone. She meets her neighbor, Theo, who, at first, is not friendly because she is used to the popular girls being bullies, Ariel assures Theo she is not popular, and they are soon very good friends. Ariel is also intrigued by the new guy, Henry, but so is Lainey, the popular mean girl. As all of this is happening Ariel is having some supernatural experiences.
It did take me quite a while to get into the book, but once I hit the halfway point it flew. I really liked the characters of Ariel and Theo. The hero, Henry, I'm not so sure about. He's too back-and-forth. I will definitely read the next book, since it left off on such a cliff hanger.
