REVIEW: Significance by Shelly Crane


After a rough year, seventeen year old Maggie finds everything she could’ve asked for and more when she saves the life of a stranger. As her life undergoes many changes, there are those would seek to take all she’s finally found away from her.

Title:  Significance
Series:  Significance
Book #: 1
Author:  Shelly Crane
Approximate Book Length:  378 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  16+
Sexual Content:  Mild


What an adorable, sweet and addictive story! It’s told from Maggie’s point of view, and it’s touching to follow her as she graduates from high school having suffered through a breakup with her boyfriend of three years, abandonment by her mother, and a withdrawn father all in the last year. She has no idea Caleb’s her future when she saves his life.

At the first touch of their skin, they imprint, seeing bits and pieces of their future together flash before their eyes. Caleb introduces his soul mate to his family and his world, not realizing just how difficult their lives will become. His family’s enemies do everything in their power to take it all from them before even getting a chance to explore their bond.

My only complaint is that I feel the final confrontation is a little anticlimactic, and Maggie seems to respond to her ordeal very mildly. That being said, it makes for a story with conflict, while still keeping the overall experience pretty light hearted.

In Conclusion:

Shelly Crane weaves a sweet and romantic paranormal love story, with just enough fear and danger to keep you on the edge of your seat. Maggie and Caleb easily climbed into my list of favorite couples, and I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good young love story.
