Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Solid: Book Review

Solid by: Shelley Workinger       

I want to thank Shelley Workinger for sending me a free copy to read in order to give a review in light of the release of the second book in the series Settling coming out July 4, 2011. 

Solid is a captivating tale of a group of teenagers brought together by the mere fact that they were unknowingly genetically altered at birth for military use. They are brought to a military base camp and told about their possible mutations and start to make bonds with other characters through out the book. 

Our main character is Calliope Kaid or Clio as she is called by friends. She is socially awkward and doesn't always say the right things around cute boys like Jack Vallard. Clio and the rest of the group of teens soon find out weather or not the genetic altering has given them any abilities and they learn to utilize them. 

I am really looking forward to continuing the journey with Clio and her friends by reading Settling. This book really will appeal to those who enjoy YA paranormal.

As if the teens weren't hard enough without the military tinkering with your genetics! Sounds like a great book, Roland

This sounds like a book with implications for kids finding out who they are because we all have genetic anomalies, or special gifts and the teen years are important for learning what they are, who we are. We can't have enough help in those years and more often then not that help has to be in disguise in order to not be scoffed at.It's a lifelong process and that's one reason YA is good and enjoyable even for us old ladies.

I'm a YA Paranormal fan. Guess I better check it out. :)

Being curious here. Is the whole book about the characters learning to utilize their skills or is there some other conflict?

YA Paranormal isn't my genre but the topic is really interesting.
