So with me there's two kind of books. The ones that are recommended by my friends and I've been reading about online and I'm super exited about. And there's the kind that I randomly picked of the library shelf because they have a cool cover or have good reviews from an author I like. I usually read two pages into these books and then send them back. But occasionally I find a jewel. This was one of those. The story is about a twelve year old girl named Lillin. Every day she dose her farm chores then runs of to explore Tanglewood forest. One day she gets bitten by a snake. Suddenly she finds herself in a circle of cats, but not any cats the forest cats. They take pity on her and tern her into a kitten, saving her life. On the way to getting back to being a Human she meets a fox, a badger witch and many other interesting characters. This book really pulled me in and its one of the few books thees days where it fees like its okay if it doesn't have a sequel. I really liked the way they had a lot of native American stories woven into the book and how they have beautiful illustrations on almost every page. Defiantly a good read.
