AND YOU THOUGHT ONLY DR. DOOLITTLE COULD TALK TO THE ANIMALS–MEET MEAGHAN LOST & FOUND: MYSTERIOUS TALES FROM FAIRY FALLS–SHARON LEDWITH

giphyLFMTFFSL.gifThe Fairy Falls Animal Shelter is in trouble. Money trouble. It’s up to an old calico cat named Whiskey—a shelter cat who has mastered the skill of observation—to find a new human pack leader so that their home will be saved. With the help of Nobel, the leader of the shelter dogs, the animals set out to use the ancient skill of telepathy to contact any human who bothers to listen to them. Unfortunately for fifteen-year-old Meagan Walsh, she hears them, loud and clear.

Forced to live with her Aunt Izzy in the safe and quiet town of Fairy Falls, Meagan is caught stealing and is sentenced to do community hours at the animal shelter where her aunt works. Realizing Meagan can hear her, Whiskey realizes that Meagan just might have the pack leader qualities necessary to save the animals. Avoiding Whiskey and the rest of shelter animals becomes impossible for Meagan, so she finally gives in and promises to help them. Meagan, along with her newfound friends, Reid Robertson and Natalie Knight, discover that someone in Fairy Falls is not only out to destroy the shelter, but the animals as well. Can Meagan convince her aunt and co-workers that the animals are in danger? If she fails, then all the animals’ voices will be silenced forever.

So, I agreed to review this book based on the fact that it’s a teen book and I’m a middle school assistant principal. It’s important to me that I can share books with our students. I didn’t expect to actually like a “psychic” mystery with talking animals as characters. It’s a good thing I didn’t have my expectations set to like this book because turns out I LOVED it!!!!

If you’ve checked out many of my reviews, you’ll know I don’t say that I love many books.

This book has stuck with me since the first reading. The characters are real. I know people just like them. My students will be able to identify with them and their feelings. They are flawed. They are funny. They are realistic.

Add in the fact that the main character Meagan can hear and talk to animals, well, this storyline takes on an all new depth.

Two worlds collide as three unlikely friends bond over saving a doomed animal shelter.

If you are looking for a book to recommend to middle school and older students, this is a great book! It includes realistic, although illegal, escapades the characters find themselves in. It includes romance and characters with physical disabilities. It includes realistic relationships between adult and student-aged characters.

Just because the cover has a cat paw and a human hand reaching for each other doesn’t mean this book lacks depth or plot. Pick it up and give it a read!
