Welcome to high school high society hell, where last season’s slingbacks can warrant a lunch table demotion, the wrong date will knock you off the it-list and behind every pair of oversized Chanel sunglasses lies a secret people are dying to keep. As if senior year at Weatherford Preparatory School wasn’t hard enough, sixteen year old Alexis Bardolph had to add school outcast to the curriculum. A new found notoriety following a family scandal, her lacrosse star boy-friend dumping her for a former BFF and a string of perpetually bad hair days were among the many things going wrong in her already turbulent teenage life. But when the haunting nightmares that have plagued her since childhood begin to take an eerily tangible form and several Holler Creek residents are reported missing, Alexis can’t help but wonder if there isn’t more to her hellish dreams than meets the eye. The unexpected arrival of a mysterious and dangerously handsome new student ultimately leads Alexis to troubling truths that not even her wildest imagination could have conjured.
Silver and Stone blew me away! It's a fast and incredible read that was both charming and haunting. J.D. Thompson is a great story teller, weaving a chilling tale about a young girl who aside from her recent past, a lot of us can probably relate to.
Alexis was popular and then something awful happened, now her life is upside down and it seems like almost no one is on her side. Her younger sister is also having a hard time in school because of her, and she never sees her father.
There's a lot about this book that I won't share, it's definitely a learn as you go novel and what makes it intriguing is figuring out the truth about Alexis as she does. I will say that the ending took me by complete surprise! Every assumption I had was thrown out the window.
Let's talk about the boys of Silver and Stone. I loved Theo, I'm still rooting for him, even if it's a lost cause. Theo is Alexis' good friend who has stood by her side when none of her other friends bothered. He's flirty, cute, and a little brooding. He's also totally into Alexis (whether she sees it or not). He's the best friend who should win the girls heart, even though it takes her forever to realize it. He would have a chance, if it wasn't for the incredibly sexy and charming Lucas, who comes in and steals the show. Like I said, I'm still rooting for Theo, there's a whole series to play out maybe partly in his favor.
Silver and Stone is a paranormal romance, heavy emphasis on the romance part. It's a book that has some supernatural elements but is mainly a book about love, hope, and overcoming the past to prepare for the future. With a great set of characters, boys to drool over, and a story to become trapped in it's a book for everyone who loves anything paranormal. Silver and Stone is also a fast paced mystery, a big puzzle to solve: Who is Alexis?
J.D. has started this series off perfectly and I can't wait to find out where she takes it. If you enjoyed books like The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, The Body Finder, 13 to Life, and Hush Hush I recommend this to you.
Thank you to the wonderful author for the chance to read and review (and fall in love with) this great book!
