Hurricane Review!

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. Alligators were a different 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…

I enjoyed this book, but was also confused. It had a good plot, but at the beginning I was like "Um.. I thought this was supposed to be about a Hurricane. Am I reading the right book?" But then I read farther into it and figured out, that yes I was in fact reading the right book.

The plot was a little confusing. It seemed to jump from place to place with no real connection. One second it was talking about her being at school, and in the same paragraph she was at home trying to figure some things out. The bothered me, but it was still a good book.

Ana is a very strong female lead. I mean with her dad being a flake and leaving her to fend for herself in the middle of a hurricane and going off with his girlfriend. Then being kidnapped by the new kids in school, yeah not fun! She feels this strange connection with the new boy, Hayden and is scorned by his brother Luke. You figure out later why! I'm not into spoliery reviews!

Then there Hayden, the dark and mysterious new kid, who has a bi-polar attitude in my opinion. One minute he's saving Ana, from what, she has no idea. The next he's telling her that he can't be seen with her. Of course this would spark my interest with the kid, but it just pisses Ana off.  Plus he kidnaps the girl and well, won't explain all the mysterious behavior going on!

All in all the book was just Okay, of course I am going to read the sequel if there is another one. I give this book a 39 out of 59 tacos! I want to thank Jenna Lynn Duncan for giving me the chance to read and review her book! It was my pleasure to read your book, and I hope to be given the chance to read another one of your books in the future.
