#BookADay: FERAL NIGHTS (Book #1 in Feral series) by Cynthia Leitich Smith , my Curtis Brown, Ltd. agency sister (book published by Candlewick). A perfect summer YA read! Love the tongue-in-cheek humor, fun banter between quirky characters, plots twists. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Synopsis: "When Yoshi, a sexy, free-spirited werecat, tracks his big sister, Ruby, to Austin, he discovers that she's not only MIA; she's also the key suspect in a murder investigation. Meanwhile, sarcastic werepossum Clyde and his human pal Aimee have set out to do a little detective work of their own, sworn to avenge the brutal killing of a friend.

When all three are snared in an underground kidnapping ring, they end up on a remote tropical island ruled by an unusual (even by shape-shifter standards) species. The island harbors a grim secret, and were-predator and were-prey must join forces in a fight to escape alive.

Fans of best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith's Tantalize quartet will thrill to see favorite sidekick characters—together with all-new ones—take the fore in this wry, high-action entry in an exciting new series."
