Matt, Rochelle, Daphne and Jonas are four students starting their senior year of high school, but suffer a freak-accident the very first day and start to realize that they are developing superhuman abilities. They quickly realize that the school principal, Mr. Devlin, has in fact more than just education on his agenda, and is using the school for his own purposes.
Not only must the four friends try to figure out what Devlin’s plans are, but when he will strike, and seeing as how they cannot turn to grown-ups for help without exposing themselves, must themselves grow-up in order to stop him. As well as learning to cope with these developing powers, the four teenagers must deal with the day-to-day muddles of being a teenager, such as volatile emotions, infatuations and family issues.

Purchase "Solstice High" on:
Ardash Vartparonian pens "Solstice High" with different narrators for each chapter which makes the reading exciting and original. The author's characters were well developed and a bit of an "different" bunch with great chemistry between them it all worked out. I loved this book and really had a hard time putting it down. Highly recommended for all YA and not so YA readers.
I give "Solstice High" a 5 star rating.
