OH.MY.GOODNESS!  I loved Significance!  I would have never picked up a book that would be considered paranormal but this little jewel was a welcomed surprise! 

This book was scary good!  I could not put it down!  I needed to read the next page as much as Maggie needed Caleb's touch!  

The main characters Maggie and Caleb are perfectly described as good-hearted teenagers.  They meet by chance or was it destiny?!  They are both immediately attracted to each other when they meet but when they touch hands fireworks appear!  Maggie learns about the new life she is about to begin with Caleb and she is beyond excited to finally have the family is has always wanted.  Caleb and Maggie's excitement is soon brought to a halt as the rival clan becomes aware of what is happening  between them.  Maggie is now the center of every ones attention, including the rival clan. 

 Will they keep her from Caleb or will their bond keep them together?!  I can not wait to read the rest of this series!  I also heard it was going to be made into a movie and I will be first in line opening night to watch this one!
