“Melt is evocative, emotional, vivid, and powerful. Beautiful, painful, and ultimately healing, Melt is a gripping read that will make you feel and care about the characters.”
“Melt...reminded me of why I love to read. My heart was literally pounding...I couldn’t put it down.”
“MELT was one of the most powerful, stunning books I’ve read all year...Castrovilla sets MELT against a Wizard of Oz backdrop and the L. Frank Baum passages offer a unique insight into the plot of MELT.
The plot was incredibly real, raw, and painful. Castrovilla takes on many different subjects, such as abuse, addiction, and first love. Despite the heavy subject matter, this novel reads extremely quickly and is amazingly well-written.
If you are a fan of realistic, contemporary fiction, this novel should be a MUST READ. Bravo to Selene Castrovilla on writing one of the best books of 2014.”
“It was so well-written. If I were to meet Selene right now, I’d clap in front of her for she has written something painfully real and beautiful.”
