Solitary by Travis Thrasher

Solitary: A Novel (Solitary Tales Series)

Solitary is the first book in a new teen series by Travis Thrasher.

The main character, Chris, just moved with his mom to the small southern town 
of Solitary, following his parents' divorce.  Apparently, his mom grew up in 
Solitary, but they quickly learn that much has changed there and outsiders 
are not welcome.  Many strange (and creepy) events occur throughout the 
book, and tho it's a Christian-Thriller, it was a bit dark for my liking. 
Still, I found it hard to put the book down and finished it in a couple days.

The characters were very likable, but I needed to remind myself that most of 
them are only sixteen, as they seem much more mature.  And, I liked the setting 
for the story.  Being from the south, it was very easy to picture the small, 
rural town.

However, in the end (and after the HUGE build-up), I was left disappointed.  
So many of the questions were left unanswered, but I'm not sure that I'm really 
curious enough to read the next book in the series.  Perhaps this is a serious 
that is truly for teen readers.
