Why are all the reviews about cats and clans in the YA Warriors series? Is this accidental or is it designed to make mentally unstabe people feel even more cofunsed. The actual book looks intriguing from the brief 5 page sample, but I'm going to have to check Amazon for reviewsto decide if it's worth buying.

Insightful

I am not bipolar, but I do struggle with terrible anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Reading this soothed me. I believe that those without a mental struggle will equally enjoy this read. This book offers insight and hope in mental issues. It advocates for mental health awareness and equality among race. There is humor, love, and struggle. Try the free sample, or just outright buy it. You won't regret it.

Name- Ripple... <p> Age- He is about fifteen moons. <p> Gender- Tom. <p> Rank- Loner, he hangs around camp, though. Talk to him. Convince the tom to join officially. He has more than enough experience to become a warrior. <p> Description- He is a pure black cat with deep, piercing blue eyes. Simple. <p> Personality- At first, he seems shy and quiet. Talk to him, he opens up and is actually quite bubbly. There is also a fairly wise (for a young cat) side of him to go along with the caring. Never would he usually turn away a cat who needs help or comfort. <p> Crush- Err, no. He has been a loner his whole life and JUST found out about this Clan. <p> Mate- ... <p> Kits- o-e <p> History- Never to be revealed. <p> Theme Song- "Keep Your Head Up" by Andy Grammer and "It's Time" by Imagine Dragons. <p> Other- Ask! He'd be happy to answer. As long as it is appropriate, though.
