Review Solid by Shelley Workinger

Solid (Solid, #1) by Shelley Workinger

Goodreads Blurb:
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 Thoughts:

What if you discovered you were the product of a secret genetic experiment?

For Clio and a Hundred other kids who have lived a life bouncing around from one army base to another. being the new kid is something they are all used to. But finding out that you are the product of a secret experiment would make anyone feel out of place. 

When the government found out that a rogue Army doctor had been experimenting with unknowing pregnant women they opened up a facility to see what kind of effects the experiment had on the children. Some expected them to not be totally normal but none expected them to have super human abilities.  But there are still secrets that are being held back from them. 

Clio  starts to realize that she hasn't been able to call her mother in a week and that sometimes they have internet connection and other times they don't. Servers down is the excuse they are given. But when Clio overhears to officers talking about how the kids here don't know what they can truly do or why they are really hear she gets curious. Clio and her ban of friends take on the task of trying to find out why the have all been brought to this base and what the government really wants with them. 

Along the way Clio forges friendships she never expected and even finds a guy she really cares about. Shelley's writing is wonderful and had me hooked. I fell in love with her characters and had no difficulty completely immersing myself into Solid. An amazing read that is enticing and captivating. It kept me gripped from the first place to the last. I highly recommend this book! 

I give this 4/5 Hearts!
