Staff Reviews

Originally published in the UK in 2014, the long-awaited US rerelease of Alice Oseman’s first novel is finally here! Solitaire tells the story of Tori Spring (sister to Charlie of Heartstopper fame), a lonely 16-year-old girl whose life is upended by high-spirited new kid Michael Holden and the mysterious prank-pulling blog “Solitaire.” Unflinchingly honest and filled with suspense, Tori’s story embraces the messiness of being a teenager. I could not put this book down.
