Book: Solstice
Author: PJ Hoover

ReviewGlobal warming has reached dangerous levels with heat bubbles hovering over cities across the world. Schools have temperature gauges and emergency procedures when temperatures reach dangerous levels. Piper is a high school senior living in Austin with her over protective mother when strange things start happening. She receives a strange gift in the mail and then starts to see things that seem out of the ordinary. 

This book fell a little flat for me. I did enjoy the global warming angle and the Greek mythology infused with the story  was unexpected but the 'instant' love between Piper and the male characters was just really unbelievable. The twist at the end concerning Piper's heritage was not much of a reveal. 

Overall, an okay book.

Grade: 2/5
