Solitary, Travis Thrasher, David C. Cook, Christian/Suspense, 2010, 392 pages.

Here is the publisher’s summary of Solitary:

Solitary (Solitary Tales V1) (Paperback)When Chris Buckley moves to Solitary, North Carolina, he faces the reality of his parents’ divorce, a school full of nameless faces—and Jocelyn Evans. Jocelyn is beautiful and mysterious enough to leave Chris speechless. But the more Jocelyn resists him, the more the two are drawn together.

Chris soon learns that Jocelyn has secrets as deep as the town itself. Secrets more terrifying than the bullies he faces in the locker room or his mother’s unexplained nightmares. He slowly begins to understand the horrific answers. The question is whether he can save Jocelyn in time.

This first book in the Solitary Tales series will take you from the cold halls of high school to the dark rooms of an abandoned cabin—and remind you what it means to believe in what you cannot see.

This book started out as what I would at first term boring, but in hindsight there were some interesting details I deemed unimportant. I felt the intrigue really crank up at about 100 pages in, and I couldn’t seem to stop reading after that. The romance was turned up a little much for me, personally, but at least there was more to the story. I never expected the ending to happen that certain way. I was pretty baffled, but I still cannot wait for the next installment in the series!

My rating: 4 stars out of 5
