Cornerstone by Misty Provencher


Cornerstone Series #1


Cornerstone
Nalena Maxwell is The Waste. At least, that’s what she’s been tagged as at school, due to her mother’s obsession with hoarding truckloads of paper, each one scrawled with lines of what appears to be single-sentence stories. The insane volume of paper has forced them out of their house and now threatens to push them out of their apartment, but Nalena’s mother, Evangeline, refuses to part with a single sheet. Evangeline’s papers are so much more than just a hoarder’s obsession. They are the reason behind the Maxwell’s tumultuous family past. And they are the reason why the future is calling upon Nalena as its champion. Kept in the dark, in order to protect her from the past and future that no mother wants her child to endure, the life she’s presently living is illegible to Nalena. She believes her fate is to be only The Waste, until one night, when Garrett Reese--possibly the school’s most handsome and popular Senior--seeks her out in the back corner of the library with answers and questions that reveal the true ink on Nalena’s destiny.

Review
I love a book where the protagonist is not a weakling and the whole concept of this book leaves you guessing and trying to learn more about this world that Misty created.

Once in a while is really good to find a book with a new concept, without a love triangle but with enough romance, action scenes, and a whole cast of unique characters, but when you find a book like that, you feel like reading the entire series in one sitting and re-reading sometime in the future. And The Cornerstone Series exactly in that shelf. This is my second time reading this book, and even though I know pretty much what will happen in the book, it still doesn't lose any interest in my part.

I like the whole community thing, the different divisions, the whole cusp change the world thing, Garret's family and how Nalena was as a person, I loved her and how her relationship with Garret was developed. It made me want more and more each time.

The end was like WHAT? And you feel like picking the second book right away.

If you liked all that I have mentioned, then you should give a try for this series. I loved it and I'm sure you'll love it too.
