Book: Solitary by Travis Thrasher, David C. Cook Publishing, 2010
Genre: Suspense/Horror
Target Audience: Boys 17+
Subjects: Occult, Dating Relationships, Family Relationship
Summary: Solitary is not a safe place to be. After his parents’ divorce, Chris and his mom move there. There’s a bright spot – a beautiful, amazing girl that Chris falls completely in love with. But there’s a lot of scary things going on as well. Someone is watching… and doesn’t like Chris hanging out with Jocelyn. And there is a deep evil in this town. Kids have disappeared and from all indications, Jocelyn is next.
Notes: This book is for those who like horror and suspense. The spiritual element is that Jocelyn is searching for the God that Chris wants nothing to do with. God is always watching too and He does have the answers. This book doesn’t really come to any resolutions, at least not any positive one, so only read this if you enjoy horror. For a book containing aspects of the occult, it doesn’t do a good job providing real answers, answers that God is in control and is more powerful than the evil. It is just a tale of suspense.
Recommendation Scale: 1
 Reviewer: J:-)mi

Ephesians 6:1 - For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
