Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
When Miri’s grandmother dies, she takes with her the family secret. Miri finds herself alone and abandoned in a St. Louis boarding school. But she is about to discover the secret isn’t dead. Taunted by bullies, Miri is shocked to learn she possesses a secret power. It can save her… but can it save those she loves? After she is befriended by others with the same strange, magical powers, her history comes alive. And with it, Miri’s fate becomes more dangerous. Join Miri on a mysterious and supernatural journey with her new friends, members of an underground St. Louis society known as the Partnership for Animagi, Werewolves, and Shapeshifters, better known as P.A.W.S.
This was a very enjoyable read. Debbie’s writing style is great. I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters and the plot. We are introduced to Miri as her world is turned upside and she learns things about herself and her family that she didn’t want to believe. Miri finds herself in a new place surrounded by people like her. Her new friends help her to deal with her new powers. She learns that people might not always be what they seem to be. I highly recommend it to others. I look forward to reading more books by Debbie.
Debbie grew up in the UK in the East London suburb of Barking. She has lived in Israel, New York and North Carolina and somehow ended up in St. Louis, where for the last 14 years she has worked as a freelance puzzle constructor of word puzzles and logic problems. She lives with her husband, two children and a very opinionated feline. She believes that with enough tea and dark chocolate you can achieve anything!
