Author Shelley Workinger Spotlight

Shelley Workinger is the author of the Solid Series.

Solid (Solid, #1)


Clio Kaid may be 17 and just beginning the last summer before her senior year, but her life is anything but typical.
She’s just discovered she was genetically altered before birth and is now headed to a top-secret Army campus to explore the surprising results of the experiment.
Follow Clio and the other teens as they develop fantastic super-abilities, forge new friendships, and find love as they search for answers.


“This is a great story for MG and YA readers, and fans of James Patterson’s ‘Maximum Ride’ series will enjoy the adventures of this new group of kids who are just a little ‘different.'” by Book Noise

“On first seeing the cover and reading the summary, I thought SOLID would be something new, different, and intriguing – and it was.” by Between the Covers

“Ms. Workinger is worthy of her own place in the science-fiction/fantasy genre, because this really is an original and stand-out novel.” by Magic of Reading

Settling (Solid, #2)


At the beginning of the summer, Clio Kaid was one of a hundred teens brought to a secret Army installation. But it was no ordinary camp and they weren’t ordinary kids…
Picking up where “Solid” left off, Clio and her friends realize that they aren’t ready to go home; they’re determined to stay on campus and continue their journey of self- discovery. But someone doesn’t feel the same way and will do anything to drive them away – even kill.
Friendships will be tested, abilities will evolve, and more secrets will come out as the teens race to stop the killer before he sets his sights on one of them…


“Great sequel to “solid”. Totally captivated me from the beginning and I loved how the characters evolved. At first I though Garrett was a bit annoying with his arrogance in Solid but he has grown on me to the point of being one of my favorites.” by Maura

“It was nice to see how the characters grew from their experiences in Solid as a new mystery unfolds around them once again sucking them into a mystery. The characters are well developed and the story is executed brilliantly.” by Jennifer

“What a fabulous follow up to Solid! This novel picks up pretty much where Solid left off, which is great since these kids have had a whirlwind of a month and you almost *need* to see them right away. It’s like a reunion with some old friends!” by Crystal

Sound (Solid, #3)


Clio Kaid’s had one crazy summer.
After learning she was one of a hundred teens who were genetically modified before birth, she and the others departed for “camp” at a classified military site.
Besides discovering her own special ability, uncovering a conspiracy, and capturing a killer, she’s also forged new friendships, found love, and managed to lose them both.
With no answers and the end of summer closing in, Clio’s terrified of going home more lost than when she arrived.
Will she finally find everything she’s been looking for?
Find out in this exciting conclusion to the Solid trilogy.


“This book has so many twists and turns and such pure awesomeness. It’s the perfect example of “be careful who you trust” because with this series? You never know who the bad guy is! Sure, you get little hints but when you find out who the real bad guy is, you are shocked!” by Stephanie

“On a scale from 1-10 I give Sound a 10. It is a great ending to a series while leaving just enough room for possibly more. If you loved Solid and/or Settling then you really need to pick up a copy of Solid. If you haven’t read either than you really need to get moving and buy all three books in the Solid Trilogy.” by Raquel Vega-Grieder
