Falling Under is one of the books that can be chosen for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at TheStorySiren.com.
Falliing Under was not one of the books that I originally chose for the 2011 DAC, but it was one I have had on pre-order for awhile. I actually wasn’t aware that it was a DAC book until this past weekend. I have read one of the author’s short stories and own a couple of her adult books so I hadn’t thought of her as a debut author, but I am glad to add her debut YA book to my DAC list.
I thought the cover looked intriguing and therefore read the description. The synopsis was so mysterious that I knew I had to own it. I can’t wait to find out what Haden is and whether or not Theia loses her soul in the process. It was as if the writer of the synopsis was marketing this book to me. Based on everything it promises, this is exactly the type of book I love.
Although an excerpt is available (link below), I am not going to read it as I want to keep the mystery and let my anticipation for this book build until I get a chance to read it.

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she’s seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.
As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia’s not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.
