SolidSolid (Solid, #1)

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

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.

I have to say, this book has an intriguing concept. Due to experimentation on pregnant women by a military doctor, a large group of kids have been changed. One of their genes was tweaked, and now these kids are developing abilities that are just, well, not normal.

Clio, like most of these kids, left home to attend the military summer camp where the kids can learn about what happened to them.

If I'm being completely honest, I wanted more from this book. It had the potential to be stand-out, and instead it was just a typical YA romance. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it was done well. I just wanted it to be more.

That said, I'm still curious as to what happens next!

3.5/5 stars
