MELT by Selene Castrovilla

MELT by Selene Castrovilla | Last Syllable Books | August 2014

Melt is a brutal love story, set against the backdrop of The Wizard of Oz. Sixteen year old “good girl” Dorothy just blew into the small town of Highland Park – where the social headquarters is Munchkinland (Dunkin’ Donuts.) There, she meets Joey – a “bad boy” who tells no one about the catastrophic domestic violence he witnesses at home. Can these two lovers survive peer pressure, Joey’s reputation, and his alcoholism? And then there’s his family’s secret – about to be unleashed.Told in dual first person, 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?

Melt is based on true events. It is both a chilling tale of abuse, and a timeless romance. It will hit you like a punch in the face, and also seep through the cracks in your soul.

What do you think of the cover?

I was fortunate to read an eARC of MELT, and I think this cover really fits the tone of the book. It’s such a great, powerful, heart-wrenching read. I want my friends to read it already so we can discuss!

    The book cover reminds me of the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz. I just watched Once Upon a Time. Kind of a lasting impression until I’m over it.
