The Mark by M.R. Bunderson

The Mark by M.R. Bunderson
Publication Date: March 8, 2010
Versions: paperback
Recieved from: Around The World Tours

Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
She's had it forever. A tiny mark on her hand. No big deal, right? But when Tori discovers that her ordinary freckle is really some kind of microscopic tattoo, she doesn't know what to think, especially after meeting Eric, a guy she feels strangely connected to--and not just because he has a mark too.

All too soon, Tori and Eric realize that their marks are only the first clue to a mystery that will change everything. And with each new discovery, Tori finds herself pulled deeper and deeper into a world she could never have imagined.

Tori has always had a birth mark on her hand. But one day during science class, she looks at it under a microscope and discovers it to be a very small tattoo. When she asks her adoptive mother about it, she has no idea either. And then when her friend sets Tori and Eric on a blind date, there's just something about Eric that makes Tori feel like they're so similar. Before they even leave Tori's driveway, they touch hands and instantly are captured into another dimension.

This book was very refreshing. I haven't read anything like it before and the writing was very encapturing. The plot line, on the other hand, went way too fast for me. On page two, Tori was already figuring out about her birth mark and then on the next couple pages she meets Eric. It just felt like the plot was a little rushed.

Will I reread it?
It's a little iffy because on the one hand, it was refreshing but maybe only for a one time read.

Sounds like an interesting story. Thanks for the review.

Is the book "stand alone" or is it prepping for a series? (I ask because I've fallen into too many series situations lately and don't know that I can take on another one *grin*)
