The One (The Portal Trilogy #1) by Heather Self

Stranded on Earth two thousand years they’ve waited for the arrival of the One: some to save her, others to kill her. With her birth, the ancient prophecy could at last be fulfilled and the doorway between the worlds would open. Those who know the prophecy believe this event occurred almost eighteen years ago, and now, they’ll stop at nothing to find her.

Seventeen-year-old Eveline has lived her entire life on the move and she hates it. She knows her parents believe she’s the One, and they’ve done whatever it takes to stay one step ahead of those who want her dead. But Eveline isn’t fully convinced that her parents’ beliefs match her own. What she does believe is that Leadville, Colorado may be the chance she’s been waiting for. The chance to be somewhere safe. The chance for her to make friends and have fun. The chance to finally date a guy. The chance to be a normal girl, at least as normal as possible for someone not human.

My Review  
Wow! This was so cool! I just loved Eveline from the very beginning! Her unique appearance and her caring personality make her so easy to like. She doesn’t really believe she is “The One”, like her parents do, but she has put with the constant moving and protection anyway. Although staying in one place and having a normal life is what she really wants. Leadville, CO may seem like the perfect place to start that life, but little does she know things are about to get crazier than ever! This book is full of those “OMG –No Way!!” moments and caught me by surprise many times. And there is no shortage of swoon-worthy boys to fall for either, in fact I’m still not sure who my favorite hottie is! I know one thing for sure; I am dying to find out what happens next!
