Review- Solid by Shelley Workinger

Review- Solid by Shelley Workinger

Solid by Shelley Workinger Paperback, 221 pages Published July 9th 2010 by CreateSpace  Age Group: YA Source: Author Buy this Book: Amazon Summary (from Goodreads) Teens who discover they were secretly genetically altered before birth are brought together at a classified site where they forge new friendships, find love, develop “super-abilities,” and even unearth a conspiracy. ———————————————————— My Review:  This book was such a fast and interesting read. I really enjoyed it. It was a relatively short book, but there was a lot packed into under 250 pages. The story flowed really well, which makes reading a book so much more enjoyable. There were no slow or awkward parts. I loved how the book was setup- there was just enough intrigue and mystery for me to not figure everything out on my own, but it was not so complex and confusing that I was completely lost.

I really liked this book! I enjoyed it a lot more than the first one.

Review- Gone by Michael Grant

Gone by Michael Grant Hardcover, 558 pages Published July 1st 2008 by HarperTeen  Source: Bought    Summary: (from Goodreads) In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE. Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what’s happened. Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. It’s a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else…  My thoughts: This book was really good and it definitely got me interested in reading the rest of the series.  The concept is interesting, all adults and teenagers over the… Read more »
