Review

“Intrigue, suspense, and a fairly spectacular climax will appeal to teens asking the big questions.” -- ALA Booklist

“Tori’s voice makes this story into a poignant yet blackly funny and even lively emotional journey. A deeply absorbing read.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“In [Oseman’s] punky, depressive, epigrammatic, mordant heroine Tori Spring we have a Holden Caulfield for the internet age. -- The Times (London)

“Honest and authentic… with appeal to fans of John Green.” -- The Bookseller (London)

“Oseman proves herself a clever, witty writer.” -- Publishers Weekly

“Tori’s wry voice and dark humor provide a counterpoint to her descent into depression. A fascinating debut from an author to watch.” -- School Library Journal

“Oseman’s debut could put her among the great young adult fiction authors. Solitaire is a pleasure to read; Tori’s voice is incredibly relatable.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

From the Back Cover

My name is Victoria Spring.
Sometimes I hate people.
This is probably very bad for my mental health.

Tori has friends. She has brothers. She has parents. Sometimes she can be bothered to talk to them. Most of the time, though, she would prefer not to have to deal with other people.

Until the day she follows a trail of Post-its from her locker to a deserted computer lab, where she finds a message from a mysterious group called Solitaire. It's also where she meets Michael Holden. Irrepressibly cheerful, weird, and determined to be her friend, Michael is everything Tori normally hates.

And that's it. That's where it starts.

Soon Solitaire has launched a series of pranks across the school. For once, Tori feels connected, like someone is on her wavelength—making jokes about her favorite movies, blasting her favorite song on repeat over the intercom. Then Solitaire's pranks start to go too far, and no one else seems to be concerned. Tori doesn't like getting involved. But this time, the idea of doing nothing is even worse.

Solitaire is a novel about finding friends, finding yourself, and discovering that one person can change everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual YA
By Thegoangirlreads on 17 January 2021
Solitaire was my first read of 2021 and I couldn’t have picked up a better book to begin the year with.
Alice oseman is a genius and the universe she’s created is absolute magic. This book was published much before “Heartstopper”but this story takes place after Charlie & Nick are a couple, in that universe.
This story is not about Nick and Charlie, it’s about Victoria, Charlie’s elder sister.
“This is not a love story” as mentioned on the cover, this is not a lighthearted cliché YA story as one might expect, and is quite dense and intense.
Victoria, Tori, is a 17 year old compulsive pessimist, she has few friends, hates making new friends and is super involved with her blog. One day Tori bumps into a senior, the very peculiar Michael Holden and on the very same day she uncovers solitaire.co.uk, a havoc wrecking website that sets in motion a series of pranks in the school and the town.
The story follows Tori as she navigates school life, domestic issues, looks out for her younger brothers while fighting her own mental and emotional demons.

This book explores the complex minds of teenagers, the mental issues/illnesses/disorders/coping mechanisms that they might be silently or not so silently be dealing with. This book explores how Its not easy being a teenager, and figuring out life and it’s intricacies.
The first part of the book is super fun, light and fast with underlying currents of mental health. The second part gets a tad bit intense and delves into mental illness, it’s implications and the tempo slows down considerably. The story line is predicatable and the plot isn’t spectacular. However, It is inspiring is because Alice managed to write this book when she was merely 17. When you see it from that view point you can’t help but marvel at the complexity of the story and the intricacy of its characters.
