Reviewed by Laura Carter for Readers Favorite Eliana Davis is no stranger to moving house a lot as her dad is in the army and she has never lived anywhere for more than a few years. She has grown to love her current home in California, however, and is devastated to learn that her dad is being posted overseas so that she and her mum are going to live with her grandparents in the small town of Myrtle Creek in Oregon. Eliana knows that she is only going to be living there for a year, so she doesn’t want to get too close to anyone and she most certainly doesn’t plan to get herself a boyfriend. However, things don’t always go as planned and Eliana finds herself making new friends, a possible boyfriend and discovering that Myrtle Creek can become her home. "Solo" is a beautiful read, a truly lovely story about discovering the true value of friendship, young love, and the meaning of home. This book perfectly captures what it is like to be a 16 year old girl struggling with friends, high school drama, and falling in love for the first time. I really liked the character of Eliana. She is strong, refusing to be beaten down by her new high school's popular girl and also refusing to retaliate. I loved the relationship she has with her mother, one open and full of trust and also the fact that she spends lots of time with her gramps. Overall, a lovely enjoyable read, perfect for teenagers or those who wish to remember the drama, angst and also life-changing experiences of being a teenager.

Great YA Book! A great read! Even though it's 500+ pages, the time went by quite fast. I loved Eliana's strong stance on her beliefs and the little journey she takes as she tries to find peace away from home.

Solo by Sarah Schofield 5 STARSI love getting to read new authors work and the surprises that are in store. Solo is a well told story that I was lost in.I love the town it was set in. My in-laws are from that area so I could picture the area pretty good.Eliana two months left in the school year gets told that her dad is called to deploy for a year and that she and her mom where going to move in with her parents for that year in Oregon.Eliana is having a hard time with the move to small town and doesn't want to get involved with anything.Casey a junior is very welcoming to her and they have 4 classes together. After gym class Eliana goes to change into levis and can't find her clothes.she is upset that her last class she has to wear short gym shorts. She ends crying in study hall. Cute guy gives her tissue.Sasha is popular cheerleader who is Casey's friend who took her cloths, thinks she so special.Eliana after a week sitting with Casey and her friends for lunch decides not to eat with them and make Casey have to choose.Eliana loves to run and One day as she was running a truck almost ran her down she fell aways down a hill. It was Lucas the cute guy in study hall. He felt bad and was shaken gave her a ride home. Lucas was trying to be her friend.Eliana at a view point saw a meadow and mapped her way to it one day and after that she would spend a lot of her time alone dancing and doing gymnastic tumbling for her own pleasure. No one knew she went their.Lucas asked her to prom and she agreed to go with hijm as friends only and tried to not to get attached to him.The relationships are pretty intertwined with most of the people living in the town most of their lives.Sasha and her boyfriend continued to spread trouble and rumors about Eliana. Eliana took the high road but decided to show her up on the talent show,I cared about the characters and wanted to know more about them. I would more stories by Sarah.I was given this ebook in exchange for honest reviews from librarything.12/22/2011 PUB M.O.I. Publishing

Solo was incredible! I could not put it down. It's perfect for a quick read which is still very touching. I found I really cared about the characters and what happened to them. I could really relate to the main character. Overall, the story is beautifully written and the characters are well developed. Although, Solo focus high school students it is still an excellent read for those who have finished high school. I would highly recommend reading Solo.

I found this a good read but, a few things bothered me enough that I will not be recommending it. I love teen lit and was disappointed that this one had so many flaws. First, the main character is a self centered spoiled brat. The relationship between her and her mom is not appropriate. The entire prom scene was something out of a parent's nightmare. But this parent trust her daughter enough to let her spend the night in a hotel room with her boyfriend on Prom Night? And apparently other children's parents feel the same way because, the whole hotel is rented under the premise that the prom night event is too far away from their home but we come to find out that it's only an hour drive when the mom said if you need me I can be there in an hour. I forgot to mention that there is no supervision at this hotel just all teenagers shacking up with their boyfriends on Prom Night. I'm often looking for books that I can recommend to my own teenagers and to my friends for their teenagers. This will not be one of them

A super idealized love novel. Things like this rarely happen in real life.
