Significance (Significance #1) by Shelly Crane

Significance (Significance #1) - Shelly Crane

Official Review:

Maggie is a seventeen year old girl who's had a bad year. She was smart and on track, but then her mom left, her dad is depressed, she's graduating - barely - and her boyfriend of almost three years dumped her for a college football scholarship. Lately she thinks life is all about hanging on by a thread and is gripping tight with everything she has.

Then she saves the life of Caleb and instantly knows there's something about him that's intriguing. But things change when they touch, sparks ignite. Literally.

They imprint with each other and she sees their future life together flash before her eyes. She learns that not only is she his soul mate, and can feel his heartbeat in her chest, but there is a whole other world of people with gifts and abilities that she never knew existed. She herself is experiencing supernatural changes unlike anything she's ever felt before and she needs the touch of his skin to survive.

Now, not only has her dad come out of his depression to be a father again, and a pain as well, but Caleb's enemies know he's imprinted and are after Maggie to stop them both from gaining their abilities and take her from him.

Can Caleb save her or will they be forced to live without each other after just finding one another?

My Review:

Significance by Shelly Crane is one of my favourite books ever, but it isn't without his problems. If you're a grammar nazi like me then I'd think twice about this, as much as I like self-published books, Shelly really needs someone to look over it. Its things like misspellings and the misuse of 'their' and 'there' and 'they're' and other words like that, but the story line is worth it.

This is a quick, easy read which will get you hooked and in love. It's a sappy page-turner of the paranormal variety with romance that will make you swoon and drama which will make you gasp. If you're looking for a cute story with multiple books that will keep you obsessed, but nothing too hard and grammar doesn't annoy you then I definitely suggest this read.

The characters have development, and form quick attachments that make you want your own attachments. Maggie is a relatable character who evokes pity and admiration through her story. Occasionally she says something or feels something which doesn't make sense and isn't properly displayed but overall it's easy to ignore.

THE STORY: *insert dramatic music*

Maggie hasn't had the best year - she's 17 and finished school a year early, but since her mum left a year ago things haven't been pretty for Maggie. Until she meets Caleb. They meet in the most dramatic of situations as she saves his life, and when they touch they seal the deal. Caleb isn't your ordinary guy - he's an Ace, which means that he's not fully human and now that he's touched Maggie neither is she. They're soul mate's - significants - and they can't be about his mother. But of course nothing is easy for these two lovebirds, and as enemies rise they will start their fight to be together - will they win?

Good read if you can overlook all the spelling and grammar issues, but I'd recommend it to most people!
