This book was really good, I like the authors writing style and I couldn't stop reading. I highly recommend it.

While this was billed as a "young adult" novel, its intelligent treatment of growing up a bit different in a small southern town will appeal to adults as well. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't give it to my daughter until I found out what happened to the 15 year old protagonist as she navigated a public high school in the mountains of North Carolina -- with a pet cheetah from her dad's wild animal rescue center. It's a well-written, entertaining, and often funny book, but it will also give rise to a lot of conversation about many of the bigger issues it touches upon.
