Sixteen-year-old Solomon is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left the house in three years, which is fine by him.

Ambitious Lisa desperately wants to get into the second-best psychology program for college (she’s being realistic). But is ambition alone enough to get her in?

Enter Lisa.

Determined to “fix” Sol, Lisa steps into his world, along with her charming boyfriend, Clark, and soon the three form an unexpected bond. But, as Lisa learns more about Sol and he and Clark grow closer and closer, the walls they’ve built around themselves start to collapse and their friendships threaten to do the same.

Yeah, like just something broken to fix, just a stepping stone in her journey to help her on.


Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7322 comments I just finished and , while I think we needed a bit more resolution with Lisa, I really liked the book. And the ending as well.

Well except (view spoiler)

Well, that bit was left open to interpretation I guess. (view spoiler) but Lisa seemed to have learned her lesson (view spoiler)

I'm pretty sure the first one was because Lisa kept talking about leaving.

Karen Barber | 11251 comments Ch1-3. Solomon's behaviour, while hard to deal with, is very logical. I do wonder how we'll get a whole book out of Lisa's attempt to 'fix' him.


Karen Barber | 11251 comments Ch4-8. Lady Macbeth without the murder-wonderful line! Lisa is a scary character, but the way his family accept Solomon is interesting.


Karen Barber | 11251 comments Ch9-15. It won't be this easy, surely! Clark is quite sweet.


Karen Barber | 11251 comments Ch16-21. Really enjoying this, though I don't feel things will go well for Lisa.


Karen Barber | 11251 comments I've seen Rachel's review for this-guess she forgot the BR. Anyway, an adorable book and I am now going to have to recommend it to all and sundry.


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments @Karen: Oh, shit! I'm so sorry. I completely forgot about this one. I'm not participating in the challenge this month so I thought I didn't organise any BRs... I am so, so sorry.


rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments I'm so happy you loved it too though. How beautiful was Clark? I think I'm in love, haha!
