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.
We get lots of review requests for self-published books and most of the time we can't accept them, but I just couldn't resist solid. Genetically altered teens?! Sounds pretty awesome right? It is.
I don't have a whole lot to say about Solid because well, it's pretty short and the plot is relatively simple compared to some other YA books. The main character, Clio, is pretty average besides the mutation part, so it allows readers to connect with her easily. In fact, all the characters are pretty easy to relate too, which is definitely something good to look for in a YA novel. When the government calls all the mutated kids Clio finds out the truth, and well the plot sort of unravels from there.
Solid is an extremely quick read that pulls you in from the start. It's complete with romance, action, plot twists, and is definitely pretty unique. Even though it's self published- it's still just as good as books published by big name publishers.
