Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fresh, emotionally complex bildungsroman of young American love that looks long and hard at violence, and at what can overcome it.”  —Kirkus Reviews


"Poignant, moving, and riveting, the narrative switches seamlessly between both of their perspectives, capturing the angst of adolescence and young adulthood, while handling a heavy thematic element with incredible verisimilitude.”  —IndieReader


"[Selene Castrovilla] is a writer to watch."  —Jacqueline Woodson, author, Brown Girl Dreaming


“Raw, lyrical, and darkly humorous—and uncompromisingly honest—Selene Castrovilla’s work is poetry and prose combined to the utmost. This is a writer to watch out for.”  —Daniel Ehrenhaft, author, The Last Dog on Earth


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.”  —Cheryl Rainfield, author, Scars

From the Inside Flap

Based on true events, MELT is both a chilling tale of abuse, and a timeless romance. MELT will hit you like a punch in the face, and also seep through the cracks in your soul. MELT, though not a retelling, is a brutal love story set against the backdrop of The Wizard of Oz. When sixteen year old Dorothy moves to the small town of Highland Park, she meets, and falls for Joey - a "bad boy" who tell no one about the catastrophic domestic violence he witnesses at home. Can these two lovers survive peer pressure, Joey's reputation, and his alcoholism? Joey's words are scattered on the page - reflecting his broken state. Dorothy is the voice of reason - until something so shattering happens that she, too, may lose her grip. Can their love endure, or will it melt away?
