If the only thing you hear is a click, make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Make sure the ground to the engine is tight and clean. Check battery cables too. Next, have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for power to the smaller wire on the starter. If you get 12 volts, it sounds like a bad starter. Honestly, the fact that you hear the solenoid engage tells me the ignition switch is okay. I would remove the starter and have it bench tested at the parts store. It may have a good solenoid but the starter itself is bad. Thus, you hear a click.
