Wild Cat

Monday, March 21, 2011

Fear shoots through my bloodstream. I feel it like the cold ink they inject in me before X-rays. Xrays. IVs. Tests. Cancer. That’s how I’m supposed to die. Not like this.

Book: Wild Cat by Dandi Daley Mackall, Tyndale House Publishers, 2009
Wild Cat (Starlight Animal Rescue) 
Genre: Realistic Fiction/Horse Story
Target Audience: Girls and Boys 13-19
Summary: Kat is the youngest in the family. She’s also the one in the worst shape. At least the others are physically well. Kat has had cancer and even though she’s in remission, she’s still not well. All the treatments have weakened her to such an extreme state that the family is terrified for her all the time. It seems she can’t do anything without getting sick again. She just wants to be normal though! And even more than that, she wants to do something worthwhile. Everyone else has some special gift. Kat wants to be worthy of the love they are showing her.
Notes: This is the third in Dandi Daley Mackall’s newest animal series. The focus is on a family that brings in foster children or teens who are desperately in need of love. Each book in the series focuses on one child or teen and their struggles. In this one, Kat learns to trust God with her life, not just her death. She also learns to just trust in the love that God and her family have for her and not to fear not being perfect enough for them.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 John 3:1 – How great is the love that the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
