About the book:

I anxiously looked around, my heart palpitating, just in time to see an alligator slink into the green algae covered water that was on either side of us. I swallowed hard, and my heart raced even faster. Aliigators were a differn't type of predator—the one thing I was afraid of. Now I was on my own personal swamp tour. What if my kidnappers left me in the middle of a swamp with five of them creeping up on me? I've had that nightmare before and—oh no, if my dreams really are a sign of the future—I couldn't breathe now."

Adriana couldn’t decide what was worse—that Hurricane Katrina was heading for New Orleans, or that she might not survive her kidnapping to see its potential effects. She had trusted Hayden, even fallen for him, and now he and his brother Luke were taking her deeper and deeper into the Bayou. Why had two of her classmates, the mysterious Boudreaux brothers, kidnapped her? Why had Adriana’s dreams started predicting the future? Most importantly, would she make it out of the Bayou alive…

My thoughts:

It might not look like much, but this book is actually really good. I had a really hard time putting it down. I was glued to my smart phone while reading this. It was probably because you kept wondering what the deal with Adriana was. What is she? And what is the brothers? Why did they kidnap her? Yeah a lot of questions, and you will keep having questions through out this book, some of the really big questions never get answered so it is good that there will be a sequel to this one because otherwise I would be very disappointed. I like the way Duncan describes the surroundings in the book, sometimes I feel like there is to little of that, but nothing her book and she does a good job! I would love to visit New Orleans after reading this book. I also like the characters in this book and the problems that they have to face.

I would really enjoy this I think! I love it when a book is mysterious like that and you're thinking "what IS she?" haha. Great review!
