Cat Girl's Day Off by Kimberly Pauley - bookaday #2
Cat Girl's Day Off
Genre: Science Fiction
I picked this one because of the cover. It's awesome in it's simplicity. Cool looking Asian kid who reminds me of one of the Amazing Dancer's friends. Big fluffy pink cat. What choice did I have but to pick it up?
Natalie's lives in family of super-Talented people. They work for the government. Natalie, however, has a Talent she disparages, she can understand and talk to cats. Not all animals, though. Basically, cats. So right there you know there are going to be some laughs because cats are notorious for their superiority. As a "Kat"hy I know what I'm talking about. JK!
Natalie and her celebrity-obsessed friends get caught up in a kidnapping personality swapping gig that they need to use Natalie's Talent to foil. Hilarity and hi-jinks ensue. Especially since the celebrities are remaking Ferris Beuller's Day Off!
I liked the cast of characters and the twist with who was kidnapped. It was a little slow in parts but mostly fun. I also enjoyed the mostly realistic setting.
This one's put out by Tu Books. They are an imprint to watch!
