Descrizione prodotto


Fifteen year-old Juli Perry is new at Onca Lake High School. That’s tough enough without being unexpectedly orphaned, moving to the old family farm…and growing new freckles that aren’t really freckles. Juli has to adjust to more than she expected. You see, Juli is a shapeshifter—and not just any old shape-shifter. She’s a jaguar princess.

She can run like the wind, see farther than anyone she knows, and hear even the softest whisper. Oh, and she might be clairvoyant, too. All that is cool enough but there are features of shifting that aren’t so cool. Those freckles are really furry spots that itch like crazy, her toenails grow so fast they tear up her socks, and her hair…well, that golden-brown shade would be nice if it would stay instead of coming and going with her mood.

The freshman just wants to make a friend or two so she goes out for the track team. But the Track Pack has other ideas. A clique of four other teens who try to rule the school, they mercilessly pick on Juli until someone—or something—decides to protect the jaguar princess. Such protection, the Track Pack quickly discovers, can be dangerous.

Even deadly.

5.0 su 5 stelle Shape-shifters of the world...unite! 19 agosto 2013

NEVER PICK ON A JAGUAR PRINCESS...what a title! What a book! Read it in one sitting. Started reading it this morning, then had to entertain some company, impatiently thinking about my unfinished story waiting for me on the computer...! Finally, after company gone, getting kids to bed, hubby asleep, I ran back to the computer and finished reading!
Really interesting plot and the characters, as is usual for T. Lynn Odom (aka Teri Thackston), are superbly well-written. She captures the angst of teenagers in general, but also the grief of the recently bereft. The story flowed so smoothly it was like watching a movie in my head. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I've read all the Animorph books previously, but this is a brand new take on shape-shifting that you'll love!

4.0 su 5 stelle YA Shape Shifter Story 11 settembre 2013
Di Melissa Snark - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Never Pick on a Jaguar Princess is a young adult paranormal novel targeted at the tween and early teen girl audience. The author employs clear, direct language and doesn't load the story down with superfluous minutiae. The heroine, Juliana, is a fifteen year old girl, recently orphaned when her parents were killed in a car crash by a drunk driver. She comes to live with her aunt on the family farm in Onca lake, Texas. Juli is a nice girl, smart but on the quiet side. She's bookish, likes to play chess, but is also athletic. She's mature for her age, especially given the terrible loss she's suffered. She remains conscientious, considerate of others and even tempered throughout the novel.

As she nears sixteen, Juli's shape shifting gifts begin to manifest. She scares chickens, has strange dreams, develops itchy spots and eventually grows fur at inconvenient moments. Initially the poor girl is confused and who could blame her? She struggles to accept her feline nature and eventually delights in her newfound abilities. The younger reader will find her journey to be a fun and captivating flight of imagination. However, as a mother of three, the idea of parents not only failing to prepare but actively keeping their child in the dark strained my credibility.

Much of the plot revolves around tryouts for the high school track team. Juli seems to regard membership as more than a way of making new friends. Then team provides social validation in addition an outlet for her innate aggression and high energy. Although I was never on the high school track team, the length of time the tryout took felt too drawn out.

The story deals with the subject of bullies rather extensively when Juli becomes the target of a mean group of girls called the Track Pack. The author adopts a middle-of-the-road approach. Juli talks to her aunt about the problem but they do not go to school authorities. The heroine employs various methods of resolving this external conflict, including attempts to diffuse it and standing up for herself. I felt the matter was deftly handled.

A council of shifters who meet in their partial animal forms provides some comedy relief and also serves to advance the primary subplot. Another cat shifter in Onca Lake is actively seeking to harm the girls who are mean to Juliana. The external threat helped build tension as the story sped at a quick clip toward its resolution.

NPoaJP doesn't wrap up with a neat ribbon tying everything together but the story does offer a satisfactory conclusion. Since this story was meant to be the first in a series, the questions left unresolved were OK by me. Romance elements are sweet and limited to kissing. There is mention of teenage drinking but in way of the cautionary tale--don't do it. Violence is mild. I'd be perfectly comfortable recommending this book for an eleven-year-old reader interested in paranormal fiction.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I've read other books by this author under her other name, Teri Thackston. I have always enjoyed her work. And this new young adult novel did not disappoint! It was well written with great characters who developed in ways that sometimes surprised me - in a good way. The suspense was good and the twists in the plot were not predictable. The touch of romance, humor, the inevitable conflict between teens, and the strong sense of family all combined to make this a fast and enjoyable read.

Run! Run faster! Disaster happens in everyone's life at one time or another, but it's nice to see the process of overcoming the events that happen and adding some paranormal. Why? Because they always have it harder! Plus I live in Texas so I could definitely relate to the land and landmarks. Always a plus. Is the Jaguar Princess living next door to me? I will never know.
