The Childe (The Childe #1) by C.A. Kunz

Cat Colvin 
Average Teenager? 
Or Something Else Entirely? 

Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager. Sure, she’s taller than most girls, has a mane of fiery red hair that’s impossible to tame, is left-handed, and her eyes are two different colors, but that’s where the differences end... unless you include the minor detail of her slow transformation into a Childe. 

High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it’s no different. This is especially true when she’s faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat’s family not telling her? 

The Childe is the first book in this coming-of-age fantasy series which follows Cat's life through the twists and turns toward finding out whom and what she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with mystery, biting humor, and the paranormal.

My Review  
What a great book! Very mysterious all the way through. Cat is really cool! She has an awesome group of friends that she is very loyal to & she's not afraid to stand up for herself or any one of them. This story is also unique because you get to know the thoughts & feelings of a lot of different characters as the story the moves along, rather than seeing everything from just Cat's point of view. But somehow that only adds to the mystery rather than letting out all the secrets. I will definitely want to read more of this story!
