Book Review - Aurora Fee, by Megan Barnes

When I was younger, I loved fantasy books. Nothing too crazy, but just different enough from my own reality to serve as an escape. I know when I was in junior high school, I would have loved Aurora Fee, by Megan Barnes.

Written by a teenager for teenagers, author Megan Barnes captured the heart and soul of every high school girl who dreams of being unique. I mean, finding out you are immortal is pretty special, but an immortal shape shifter is even better. Born an average human, her life was changed forever at 16. Aurora can change into a cat and back again triggered by her emotions. But, as all good fantasy is, this book also deals with the common issues teenagers face...Aurora must navigate high school, friends and even falling in love. If you think your teen years were difficult, just think about Aurora's complications!

"...even if I may have been human once, I'm not anymore."

Unlike the average high school girl, Aurora can't stay in one place for too long. Having kept her secret hidden for years, but a new move to a Manhattan school has her friends facing danger.

This was a fast read, and I am sure as a teenager I would have consumed it in one sitting. At 240 pages it is not a long read, but a perfect serving of feline adventure. I enjoyed that it was a great mixture between usual teen conflicts, and life and death action. It is a great story I would recommend for tween through teen readers, especially girls interested in paranormal fiction.
