Shelter: A Mickey Bolitar Novel: A Mickey Bolitar Novel is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
A young adult debut from internationally bestselling author Harlan Coben

Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools.

A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey's train-wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury - and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben's latest adult novel, Live Wire, Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about. With this new series, Coben introduces an entirely new generation of fans to the masterful plotting and wry humor that have made him an award-winning, internationally bestselling, and beloved author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome !!! Really awesome book, Harlan Coben is a great writter. Throughout the whole book he kept me wanting more I finished this book, well I devoured it in 2 and a half hours, it's crazy I wanted more, wanted to know what was going to happen. I wanted to know everything about this book. It's different from all the other books I read but I really liked it, it was different, refreshing, sad, scary and mysterious. This book has a lot in it. Definitely a must read if you like mysteries, this is not the last book I read by Harlan Coben !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not As Good As I Hoped But Still Great! When I first found this book I thought that it was going to be one of my favourites. I thought that it was going to be better. Now don't get me wrong, it was still great but I thought that there should have been a little less mystery and a little more answers about the main character's background and how he played into the problem or plot. I was really blown away with the way the author didn't give anything about the ending or what was gonna happen next durning the book. Most of it was kept a mystery. I liked how the everything in and about the book was thought through. The plot was really good and the characters and settings were also great. :]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great Now I know that I am a fast reader, usually reading at least one book a day, but I absolutely devoured this book. I think in total it took me an hour and half to read it. That is fast, even by my standards. After having read the book all I have to say is why haven't I read a novel by Harlan Coben before? I was hooked from the first page and when I finished the book, I immediately wanted to read another one. Unfortunately, Shelter is Harlan Coben's first foray into writing a YA novel. Having said that, I really hope he writes another one. The novel was the perfect blend of suspense, intrigue, humor, and sensitivity. The character's, who were all very different, came across as authentic and real in both their relationships and interactions. The protagonist Mickey is currently living with his uncle Myron after having lost both his mother and father in some shape or form. Mickey is both a likeable character and an honourable one. He has a tremendous sense of right and wrong, and a very deep social conscience that is not usually displayed at his age. He, despite the recent trials and tribulations he has been through, remains steadfast in the belief that you should help those who are in need despite the personal cost, and displays this throughout the novel on his search for his missing girlfriend. All in all, I found this a very enjoyable and easy read. It can get a bit suggestive at times, but it's really nothing more than you would see on TV in any prime time show.
