This is by far one of my most favorite books. It was described and put pictures thoughts and emotion all into my head along with action. I hope that a second one will come out and i will enjoy it. I highly recomend it.

Claws is about a 14-year-old boy named Cody who runs away from his mom and heads south. He ends up in Texas and starts working at a tiger ranch, learning how to lock the big cats down in pens to clean out their cages and how to feed and handle some of them. A bit of a mystery about the disappearance of the owner's 'Sunny' brother surrounds the place and people blame Sunny for his disappearance. Cody decides to prove Sunny's innocence and goes about collecting evidence to prove her innocence. The best part of the book was when a tornado hit the farm and once it was over they had to go out and round up the big cats that had escaped from their cages. The worst part was when they found Brutus, a huge and very mean tiger, over at a neighboring house and one of the ranch hands brought a gun to shoot him. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read or likes big cats. It's a fast-paced book that's easy to follow and it caught my attention from the very beginning.

A fourteen year old boy runs away from a psychologically abusive mother and ends up working at a tiger ranch in Texas where he cleans cages and cuts carcasses to feed to the big cats. Surprisingly, what he learns while he's there allows him to stand up to his mother when she eventually tracks him down.

He walked into the room. "Well, well." He smiled then became serious. He grabbed her and pinched, saying, "You must do whatever I say, or you'll never see daylight again." He let her go. He pulled a six- hole pistol out of his pocket. "I have a license," he said smiling, "and you go to your quarters next res. ( Not the one next to this book but the one after. Double res.) But, tomorrow, the Real work begins."
