    Solid is a very intriguing novel I was sucked right into it from the beginning Getting to know Clio, Jack, Bliss, Melinda, Garrett was really interesting Clio is the main character, but the other tie in closely with her and really make the friendship aspect of the book work well The characters are well done teenagers, they behave in typical teenager ways even with their extraordinary gifts.The premise is set up very well, these kids have special abilities and they have been collected togethe Solid is a very intriguing novel I was sucked right into it from the beginning Getting to know Clio, Jack, Bliss, Melinda, Garrett was really interesting Clio is the main character, but the other tie in closely with her and really make the friendship aspect of the book work well The characters are well done teenagers, they behave in typical teenager ways even with their extraordinary gifts.The premise is set up very well, these kids have special abilities and they have been collected together for research and for the government to make up for a doctor creating this difference in them before they were even born The set up is well done and not overdone Ms Workinger does a beautiful job launching you into the story and building up the premise as she goes I never felt bogged down in the story at all Engaging dialogue keeps it going and entertaining.As the premise sets itself up, the characters begin their interactions and the reader gets to know each of them primarily through Clio s eyes and Clio learnsabout herself in the process Of course to make it interesting there is muchto the book, but I don t want to give anything away, so suffice it to say the plot is extremely interesting and keeps you engaged throughout the book I would actually say my only complaint would be that it s too short I wish things could have developed , but I guess that is what the next two books are for Since I enjoyed Solid and it s characters so much I will definitely be checking out Settled and then Sound I look forward toadventures and friendship with Clio, Bliss, Melinda, Jack, Garrett and Alexis

    Firstly, I must say that I am a big fan of books about superheroes people with special abilities So when a bunch of gifted teens are placed in a school or training facility, with a strong female protagonist included as well as a love interest, that s an immediate thumbs up from me and a formula for an excellent story I mean, how could you go wrong Unfortunately you can, and many books do, as the fine line between believability and an imaginative yet gripping plot blur The struggle is to make Firstly, I must say that I am a big fan of books about superheroes people with special abilities So when a bunch of gifted teens are placed in a school or training facility, with a strong female protagonist included as well as a love interest, that s an immediate thumbs up from me and a formula for an excellent story I mean, how could you go wrong Unfortunately you can, and many books do, as the fine line between believability and an imaginative yet gripping plot blur The struggle is to make the story plausible enough so that the readers are able to accept the characters and events without too much questioning and then having the story compete with masses of plot holes I am happy to say that I believe readers of Solid will not have this struggle as it hits the mark and is everything you expect from this kind of fiction The author creates a believable scenario to explain the superpowers and I also thought the school was also within the realm of possibility The book is written in first person and mainly revolves around the emotions, thoughts and feeling of Clio, rather than a fast paced series of events, which I thought was the main let down, although despite the fact I enjoyed this, there was plenty of room to make itengaging The characters are just discovering their abilities towards the end of the book this was a little on the slow side for me , but even when they do, they handle it in a way that adds to the credibility of the book, as there is no wow we have superpowers lets go save the world The romance between Clio and Jack was sweet, although I would have liked to seeand hopefully will.As previously mentioned, what this story lacks in originality, it makes up for in entertainment value I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be eagerly anticipating a sequel

    A good story that had potential to be a great story If only it had beenoriginalThe characters weren t exactly rip offs of any individual one from another book Rather, mixes That probably makes no sense what so ever but I find it true The main character is Calliope who was somewhere between Kane Chronicle s Sadie and Champion s June while Jack was somewhere between Monster High s Jackson and something else that I can t put my finger on This relationship between Clio Calliope s cute A good story that had potential to be a great story If only it had beenoriginalThe characters weren t exactly rip offs of any individual one from another book Rather, mixes That probably makes no sense what so ever but I find it true The main character is Calliope who was somewhere between Kane Chronicle s Sadie and Champion s June while Jack was somewhere between Monster High s Jackson and something else that I can t put my finger on This relationship between Clio Calliope s cute nickname and Jack was too pushed by the author Seriously A dance at a military training camp Creative, but not exactly relevant It all seemed judged by appearances too Why does Clio like Jack All for the physical stuff and barely any internal concepts For the book to be named after such a relationship is a pity, really The author redeemed for it pretty well with the plot twists and unpredictable outcomes however, not completely Mostly these twists and outcomes came from drama and not action which is not exactly something I expected from a super hero book Though, the fact that they are somethingthan human makes you curious enough to keep reading, but nothing in there clicked with me enough to feel like I couldn t put it down In conclusion, a good book in general but it sgas than solid there, but will eventually rise away from my memory.COMMENT OVER ONE YEAR LATER Yep The plot s pretty much forgotten

    Review found at Confessions of a Bookaholic is a quick, fun read that grabbed me from the start It s taken from the point of view of Callipoe Clio , who is one of the hundred teens being sent to a special camp due to some experimentation they were subject to during their development Their mothers were given a drug, unknowingly, in their prenatal vitamins by an Army doctor experimenting in secret Now researchers are attempting to find out what, if any Review found at Confessions of a Bookaholic is a quick, fun read that grabbed me from the start It s taken from the point of view of Callipoe Clio , who is one of the hundred teens being sent to a special camp due to some experimentation they were subject to during their development Their mothers were given a drug, unknowingly, in their prenatal vitamins by an Army doctor experimenting in secret Now researchers are attempting to find out what, if any, abnormalities these kids have.When Clio goes to the camp she meets a lot of great people Jack, Bliss, Miranda, and Garrett help make the camp experience a littleenjoyable for Clio Each day the researchers test groups of kids based on their talents They have the artsy, athletic, and the group that seems to be uncategorized They are the largest group but they don t realize their actual talent for a while They can do something very impressive But once Clio overhears some disturbing statements about their group she starts to wonder if the researchers are being as truthful as she once thought This takes her and her friends on a path to find out the truth and what brought them all to the camp I really enjoyed each one of the characters in this story Clio was easy to like and her relationship with Jack was adorable and sweet Miranda was the mean girl in a lot of ways but she still seemed to fit into their group perfectly Bliss was shy and kind, but my favorite character would have to be Garrett I adore characters like Garrett They remind me of teddy bears or protective big brothers He was so funny and just had a magnetic personality that I couldn t help but love Although the book was focused on Clio s story, I can t imagine it without Garrett I just wish the story was longer Solid is a wonderful book that brings in a batch of fascinating characters and an intriguing plot that will keep you guessing Shelley s writing flowed nicely throughout the story and I m exciting to see where she goes with it in book 2, Settling
