Overview

Sixteen-year-old Ima Berry (pronounced I’m a) leads anything but a normal life. For starters, the ridiculous name her eccentric dad gave her is always the opening for a goodjoke. Not to mention the fact he makes his living as a supernatural investigator, which has them moving around every few months. It’s hard to hang out with new friends when she spends all her time trying to prove the existence of Bigfoot, ghosts, fairies and any other number of paranormal creatures. Unfortunately, the cases always end in disaster. That is until now.

On a whim, Ima’s father decides to move them to Point Hope, Alaska. Here, he plans to investigate the possibility of shifters amongst the Inuit tribes. Ima isn't thrilled with the move, until she meets an Inuit guy named Carsen. Not only is he hot, but he’s also a star basketball player, and he’s interested in her. Too bad his best friend, Talon, doesn't like her and takes every opportunity he can to discourage the relationship. Ima has no idea what she’s done to make him mad, but there’s no denying the strange connection between them.

As things grow more serious with Carsen, Ima uncovers a secret about him and some of the residents of Point Hope. A secret that will force her to choose between her father’s already dwindling career and her new found love. And with the knowledge of this secret comes danger…a danger that could cost them their lives.

I think that this was an amazing book. I love YA books aswell as adult books and I like to read most YA's before I let me daughters read them and this book would be perfect for any child ages 12+. It was well written and I love the main theme of the book. Ima Blue Berry is the child of a paranormal investigator who has his own TV show Berry PI. Ima is loves the paranormal as much as her father but when the TV season ends they move to Alaska to look for more places to investigate in the off season. Ima soon discovers that there is more to Alaska than just ghosts... boys. She also has to decide who to trust and if blood is thicker than water. The end of the book leaves a few unawnsered questions that I would have loved to know the awnsers to but it is a great opportunity for Ms Purdy to write a sequel, HINT HINT :) I hope that you will all check out this book and even if you don't normally read YAs this is a book that doesn't disappoint even for those of us that prefer more adult genres. flag

Review of Seeking Shapeshifters 5 Stars “Seeking Shapeshifters” is a winning and entertaining YA novel which makes the paranormal seem logical and likely. Likeable protagonist Ima Blue Berry is a partner with her dad, a single parent, in Berry S.I.—Berry Special Investigations, an organization which tracks and studies paranormal events, and films the investigations for television. When they move to Point Hope, Alaska, hoping to find shapeshifters, Ima has to try anew to make friends at the high school, and this time, she finds her first ever boyfriend, Carsen. Of course, Carsen has secrets, and so do his cousins, Talon and Ferren. When Ima finds footprints that show human prints changing over to bear prints, she knows that Shapeshifters are real: at least in this Alaskan region. “Seeking Shapeshifters” is an enjoyable and fast-paced read which will appeal to YA lovers of paranormal romance, but also to older readers like myself. I look forward to more novels from author Rebekah L. Purdy.
