Book Description

From Amazon

Cat Colvin
Average teenager?
Or something else entirely?

Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager. Sure, she's taller than most girls, has a mane of fiery red hair that's impossible to tame, is left-handed, and her eyes are two different colors, but that's where the differences end . . . unless you include the minor detail of her slow transformation into a Childe.

High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it's no different. This is especially true when she's faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat's family not telling her?

My Opinion

There are very few books I read were I adore the main character but this is what happened when I met Cat Colvin. She is strong, yet caring and very quirky with an awesome set of friends.
Straight away we find out that there is a secret when it comes to Cat that must be protected.

We also learn of  another group that's not to be messed with, Isaac and his friends have there own secret which is some how tied to Cat and there instant dislike to her.
Isaac is the perfect villain with the bad attitude and huge ego he was written perfectly and very wicked, You loved to hate him. .

This book is the mystery of Cat discovering herself and we the reader are along for the ride, The authors definitely kept you guessing. The Childe has everything! Mystery, Fantasy, Vampires, Teenage angst and love...Did I mention Ryan, Dreamy Ryan who goes against his friends and all he knows because of his love for Cat!

I was also very impressed with the parents in this book, YES we have parental units! Y/A books tend to have parents who disappear in the 1st chapter and are never seen again..Well not Rachel and Sam who bring so much humor to the mix with there forever young at heart mentalities

The Childe is extremely well written and a perfectly balanced Young adult book. I was left wanting so much more and was very sad when the book ended. I could go on but I feel I would ramble Can you gush about a book? I am gushing with positivity about this unique book! I need more!!!!
