Book Review #375 - Solid (Solid #1) by Shelley Workinger


Clio Kaid may be 17 and just beginning the last summer before her senior year, but her life is anything but typical.

She's just discovered she was genetically altered before birth and is now headed to a top-secret Army campus to explore the surprising results of the experiment.

Follow Clio and the other teens as they develop fantastic super-abilities, forge new friendships, and find love as they search for answers.
My Rating: 3/5
I received this book for review from the author. The author's Goodreads page can be found here.
I have a cat called Calliope. Calliope also happens to be the name of the protagonist in this book although she prefers to be called Clio. Clio was likeable enough, just not fleshed out enough.
The characters as a whole weren't very developed, but as the first book in a series this wasn't too troubling. The romance aspect seemed to come from nowhere as there was no build-up to it.
The plot was very interesting. I liked the whole concept of all the teenagers stuck in an army type camp and not really knowing what was going on.
This book is not very long and so it is a fast read but it does have a lot more depth than an average book of its size.
