Abandoned by her birth parents and ignored by her adoptive family, Maddy Page believes she is unlovable. She only allows herself to dream of falling in love. That changes when she meets MJ; handsome and kind, MJ penetrates Maddy's defenses. Maddy soon finds herself confiding in MJ like she has with no one else, revealing secrets even her closest friends don't know. He makes her feel safe--a feeling she's never experienced except in her dreams.

When Maddy witnesses MJ disappear and reappear in thin air, she realizes she might have been wrong about him. He could be dangerous--maybe even a killer. Determined to uncover the truth of who--or what--MJ is, Maddy ignores her instinct to run. But she soon realizes that getting close to MJ could cost more than a broken heart--it could cost Maddy her soul.

About the Author:

Laurie Wetzel has always had a passion for writing, but it wasn't until a New Years' resolution in 2011 that she finally shared her lifelong dream of being an author with her husband. He read the very first draft of Unclaimed and gave her the words she needed to hear, ''This is what you need to be doing.'' Three years later, the first book in the Unclaimed series was published with the second book expected to be out in 2015.

Laurie lives in Mankato, MN with her husband and two young sons. When she's not writing, working, or spending time with her family, she's either reading, running, or catching up on her favorite shows on Netflix. For updates on the Unclaimed series as well as other works in progress, feel free to check her out online!

Review:

*FINALIST IN THE MIDWEST BOOK AWARDS*

''Maddy Page has felt like an outcast ever since she learned she was adopted. When she meets MJ, Maddy feels normal for the first time in a long time. But MJ isn't exactly a regular guy: he's an angelic ''Protector,'' charged with stopping demonic and malevolent entities from harming humans, and ever since MJ met Maddy, he has been changing. He can now feel pain and taste food, and he finds that none of his abilities, such as the power to erase memories, work on Maddy. Because of these effects, Maddy is being targeted by a demon who is closer than she thinks, and her loved ones are caught in the crossfire. In this series opener, first-time author Wetzel quickly immerses readers in the supernatural conflict through Maddy and MJ's alternating narration, and maintains a rapid pace with multiple kidnappings and near-death experiences. Maddy's adoption-related angst can feel extreme (three years after learning she was adopted, she still believes herself to be unloved, despite ample evidence of a caring family) and distract from an otherwise engaging plot. Ages 12--up.'' --From BOOKLIFE by PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
