    I loved this 27 chapter book It was told through Robin s first person point of view What is someone s biggest fear Imagine waking up, not knowing where you are Imagine realizing you ve been admitted to the Killish County Mental Hospital Not only that, but your brother has been murdered That s what happened to Robin Throughout the story, the mystery she tries to solve is what had happened to her last night.My favorite lines 1 When he sat, his weight made a valley in the couch, rolling me I loved this 27 chapter book It was told through Robin s first person point of view What is someone s biggest fear Imagine waking up, not knowing where you are Imagine realizing you ve been admitted to the Killish County Mental Hospital Not only that, but your brother has been murdered That s what happened to Robin Throughout the story, the mystery she tries to solve is what had happened to her last night.My favorite lines 1 When he sat, his weight made a valley in the couch, rolling me towards him 2 Underneath the fear and suffering, there was something else, something I d seen in my own eyes the look of disgust that comes from knowing someone less than you has turned your life to absolute shit 3 I don t believe in killing, but I m not above kicking someone s butt 4 I d always believed that respect from all living creatures was something you had to earn, not steal away at gunpoint Course I didn t need any respect at the moment, just answers 5 Their egos are too fragile to entertain opposing ideas.The creepiness kept me on my toes After awhile, readers get the real deal of how wicked her brother and father were Sometimes people have a habit of idealizing a loved one s reputation once they re gone not with Martin I loved all the suspense When Robin and a deer family were stalked and hunted in the woods, it gave me chills Particularly because of the culprit This happened after she found a video tape Talk about a dysfunctional family It helped that Robin was a self proclaimed redneck The character s voice never trailed off course from that tone, adding to the realism.Monica Shaughnessy had a brilliant talent with scenes point of view, characterization, description, plot, etc The images she discussed helped me get lost in the story It felt like I took the crazy journey with Robin I enjoyed seeing her make friends at the mental institution Levi worked there , Patty another patient , and Dr G When he diagnosed her with schizophrenia, I thought that may be true But then the truth came out I m not an animal lover, but I managed to care for the deer in the story The animals as well as the people were three dimensional.It was a fast read Loving the mystery questions kept being raised , I couldn t put the book down The twists at the end were very satisfying The truth behind Martin s murder was very clever.I RECOMMEND this book to read

    What to say about this book, it was not the best nor was it the worst that I have ever read It was strange thinking that a human could talk to the animals in the real world but not overly strange to think that it could happen.

    Suspected of killing her brother Martin, 17 year old Robin Callowey is locked in a mental institution and forced to admit a bizarre secret she can talk to animals Blessed or Cursed as she believes with the ability to hear, see, and smell what others cannot, she copes with her overactive senses by sleepwalking, or turning her brain off to everything she does for periods of time.Desperate to clear herself, Robin escapes into the Texas countryside during hunting season and journeys back hom Suspected of killing her brother Martin, 17 year old Robin Callowey is locked in a mental institution and forced to admit a bizarre secret she can talk to animals Blessed or Cursed as she believes with the ability to hear, see, and smell what others cannot, she copes with her overactive senses by sleepwalking, or turning her brain off to everything she does for periods of time.Desperate to clear herself, Robin escapes into the Texas countryside during hunting season and journeys back home to Calloway Ranch hoping the trip will jog her memory enough to be certain she had no part in her brother s murder.By using her gift with a special herd of deer, she does, in fact, learn the details of her brother s death But in doing so, she discovers a trail of lies that puts her in the path of a killer someone she knew and trusted.My Rating 2 stars out of 5Because my rating on this novel is so low, I am going to start out by focusing on the postive aspects of the novel first.You immediately learn of Robin s ability to understand and talk to animals This gift, immediately catches your attention, and allows you to, for a moment, believe in the paranormal.The ending of this novel is superb A lot of things happen and are reveleaed that you would not expect Even though the ending was a bit sad, it holds the promise of so much .HOWEVER,The formatting editing of this book was ATROCIOUS I had to force myself to continue reading, due to the grammar used Words like Nekkid , Woulda , and Unloosed are used during the course of the normal narrative to mean it wasn t the way a certain character spoke.Phrases such as that weren t no better and timing was so dad gummed perfect , take away from the overall plot of the story, and to be perfectly honest, make it understandable why the author had to be self published instead of picked up by a mainstream publishing house Although the premise is strong and catching, the book just does not back it up.Overall, I would say the book is worth reading, if only for the ending, but only if you can get through the horrible wording

    Disclosure This book came to me via BookRooster dot com in exchange for an honest review.Another disclosure I had just finished the writing a review when my tablet froze and lost the whole thing I know it was much better than this one is going to be Isn t that the way it is By the way, if you are looking for ways to find new books to review, BookRooster gets you fun free ones I have had this book for a few years It is embarrassing to know I have had it that long Still books don t spoil w Disclosure This book came to me via BookRooster dot com in exchange for an honest review.Another disclosure I had just finished the writing a review when my tablet froze and lost the whole thing I know it was much better than this one is going to be Isn t that the way it is By the way, if you are looking for ways to find new books to review, BookRooster gets you fun free ones I have had this book for a few years It is embarrassing to know I have had it that long Still books don t spoil while sitting on the shelf waiting for eyes to read them.Okay, now about the book itself Though it seems to be a fantasy, girl who has hidden talent, it is a contemporary young adult book The main character can communicate with animals or has a mental illness Possibly killed her brother Yikes As you get to know her, Robin, the main character, grows on you She is sweet, sensitive, and strong As you watch her growth you can hardly wait until she come into her own life I loved all of this and it kept me reading.What I didn t like was the accents This might come across okay to the silent reader But for those of us that use text to speech it is not only annoying but confusing Even when I haven t needed to listen to my books, this kind of thing is distracting from the main story I read it on my Moon Reader Pro which sounded foolish at times as it tried to figure out how to pronounce those contracted words Because of that, I had to pay attention to the written words as I went Not a great one to listen to on the road or while busy doing other things Anyway, I don t want to discourage anyone who might want to read the book You might have a better time with it than I did And I am curious to read other works by this author

    I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for a review While I thought the main premise a girl who can speak to animals ends up in a mental institution after she witnesses the death of her brother was interesting, I didn t think the characters were well developed The main character adjusts far too quickly to living with animals Likewise, the animal s social structure and behavior was too humanoid for my tastes While humanoid behavior in animals can be justified in a fairy tale world I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for a review While I thought the main premise a girl who can speak to animals ends up in a mental institution after she witnesses the death of her brother was interesting, I didn t think the characters were well developed The main character adjusts far too quickly to living with animals Likewise, the animal s social structure and behavior was too humanoid for my tastes While humanoid behavior in animals can be justified in a fairy tale world,such sentiments are jarring in a real world context The final plot twist didn t seem adequately set up either, coming with no foreshadowing or warning

    What a fun book Robin Calloway is a delightful character who, despite a pretty lousy upbringing, is sweet, compassionate, and honest She also communicates with animals They understand her thoughts She understands theirs Very cool There were several tense moments and the mystery was a good one This is a fun, clean YA book There s even a hint of a romance I received a free copy for an honest review.

    I really liked the story and the plot twists It kept me guessing until the end which I really enjoyed Her accent was authentic I m a transplant Texan and have some authority on the subjectIt added to the realism of the character.
