Sound by Shelley Workinger

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.

Sound is the exciting conclusion of the Solid trilogy.  If you haven't read the first two books in the series, Solid and Settling, you can still read Sound.  Workinger does a good job of creating a stand alone book, but to experience everything, you'll want to read the first two books.

The main character is Clio and she's still juggling her 'me' time with her friend time.  Not to mention the fact that she's still honing her new powers.  The gang of friends summer at camp is growing to a close and they are all a bit nervous about going back into the real world. 

To cap off the summer, the camp is letting them pick one of four outings.  They go alright but only Clio seems to pinpoint something a bit off.  From this point, she begins to investigate.  I can't tell you what it is or it will give away the plot, but it's intriguing.

Although Sound does finish the trilogy and the ending is satisfying, Workinger leaves a slight crack open which leaves open the possibility of a continuation later or for fans to use their imaginations.  All in all, a riveting read to a compelling series that I'm sad to see end.  Recommended to all who enjoy young adult / science fiction.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
