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.

Alexis Batdolph is not a normal teenager, no, she is not. She experienced something traumatic in the last summer that changed her life. Now, logically, she feels miserable and frustrated, she is having those creepy nightmares that have been hunting her since she was a child and everybody is giving her weird glances. Even her sister. But the new guy at school, Lucas, doesn't seem to think in the same way. 

Silver and Stone is a really suspenseful book that starts like a normal book for teenagers, but as we go further, the story starts to get more complicated and more dark.  I must say that at the beginning when I started reading the book I was wondering all the time what it was about. Some books when you start reading you know immediately the main topic… umm… vampires, werewolves…ghosts, etc… but in this case, no, you don't know anything about the plot, and the best part is that the author keeps all that mystery and that darkness in all the book and that is what it keeps you motivated to continue reading, and that was what it kept me motivated to continue reading. I was jumping to conclusions all the time. Some of them were right, but most of them were so wrong. What I didn't like too much, was the ending. OMG! that was not fair. It finished in the best part! What is going to happen!?

The characters are very well developed. Like I said before Alexis even though is a strong girl, she is feeling really bad, and the author does a great job showing her feelings. Lucas was nice, but I didn't like him too much (Specially the part with Olivia, omg, I hate that girl) and I felt  that Lucas was behaving too awful and I just ended not liking him at all.  The same thing happened with Alexis' sister, I know why she behaved in the way the did, but I didn't enjoy her. I couldn't stand the way she treated Alexis. Poor girl! At least she had really good friends who really love her (And of course, I loved them, too)

So, what can I say? If you like mysterious book from head to toe, and if you want to know what happened that summer, why her sister is so angry at her, why are people missing and who is that mysterious student…. To find out, you have to read Silver and Stone for yourself.  

Happy Reading!

I really liked it!

J.D. Thompson is a photographer by day and closet writer by night. She views writing in much of the same manner in which she views art: it’s all about creation. J.D. has a love for words in general and is fascinated by the way a few simple sentences combined with one’s imagination can build a whole new universe on a single sheet of paper. In 2003 she attended the University of Moncton, where she majored in Visual Arts Studies and minored in English Literature. She is currently living a quaint rural town in the chilly northern peak of New-Brunswick, with her husband and young daughter. Silver and Stone is her first completed novel.
