Solitary ~ Review!!!

About the Book:

Hidden secrets provide the magnetic force that draws Chris Buckley and Jocelyn Evans together in the town of Solitary, North Carolina. There is no resistance strong enough to prevent these two young people from being pulled into the terrifying reality that has remained hidden in this town for so long. Travis Thrasher brings his talent to the young adult market in his latest horror tale, Solitary. Blending the sinister power of secrets with the unyielding power of young love. Thrasher creates a tale that will draw readers deep within this rural town and into the darkened hearts of the people who reside within this isolated mountain community.

Sixteen year old Chris Buckley has moved to the town of Solitary, North Carolina, with his mother, and he immediately senses that there is something dark lurking beneath the surface of the community he now calls home. Chris also discovers something far more powerful and unexpected that the unusual people of Solitary. He discovers that it is possible to love someone else enough to risk everything--even life itself. Jocelyn Evans repels Chris with as much power as she draws him to her heart when they first begin their relationship. As their emotions strengthen and grow, Chris learns that Jocelyn harbors terryifying secrets about the town and the evil the lurks within its residents. By the time Chris faces the horrifying reality of the evil forces at work around him, he realizes that living a life without Jocelyn is even more frightening.

About the author:

Travis Thrasher is an author of diverse talents with more than twelve published novels including romance, suspense, adventure, and supernatural horror tales. At the core of each of his stories lie flawed characters in search of redemption. Thrasher weaves hope within all of his tales, and he loves surprising his readers with amazing plot twists and unexpected variety in his writing. Travis lives with his wife and daughter in the suburb of Chicago. Solitary is his first young adult novel.

Since this was a young adult novel I thought it would be best to allow my daughter the opportunity to read Solitary. I cannot even begin to tell you how MANY times she said "MOM! This is THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ!" or "OMG, this book is SOOOO AWESOME!" and then when she finished she told me "YOU HAVE TO READ THIS MOM!!!"
So without further adieu....Here is Jenna's review ~

Okay, Travis Thrasher. PLEASE, PLEASE continue writing these kinds of books. This was the best book I've read. It's a book of secrets, hopeless love, and mystery. Chris and his mom leave his home in New York away from his father who found faith and neither Chris nor his mother could handle it. They move to small town named Solitary. Chris meets the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. But also the most terrible. Secrets of this girls past, present, the town, and his uncle's mysterious disappearance all make this book, un-put-downable. (And yes, I just made that word up). PLEASE WRITE MORE YOUNG ADULT BOOKS MR.THRASHER. Everyone go out and get this book. It's an amazing book, and you can ask my family, I was crushed when I turned the last page. Again, a great read. I cannot wait to the 2nd book in this series!!
