    Great book-must check it out!!

    I loved this book! I especially appreciated the cleverness with which the lives and characters of romantic poets Shelly, Byron, and Keats were woven into this contemporary and relevant story. I related emotionally with each character on multiple levels, as well as their stories. What I loved most about this book are the words with which the author chooses to tell his tale. I paused on several occasions to savor the descriptions throughout this novel.So Shelly can be enjoyed at different levels; it is intelligent and moving. Great for book groups and mature young adults. Ty Roth is to YA literature what Eminem is to Rap.

    Highly Recommended! Pre-Order This Now! I read an advanced copy.

    I am one of the lucky few that was able to receive an advanced reader's copy of the book. It's available to the public February 8, 2011. Ty is my friend, and I am incredibly proud of his two-book publishing deal with Random House. Friendship aside, this is indeed one of the best books I read of 2010. While placed in the Young Adult genre, So Shelly is for mature readers, and like its author, So Shelly doesn't hold back any punches; the work addresses, and without apology, very real and dark issues facing today's teenagers. So looking forward to seeing So Shelly hit the bestseller's list. Here is an early I told you so.
