Watch for It: Feral Curse by Cynthia Leitich Smith

The second book of the Feral series, Feral Curse, releases tomorrow! Here's what Kirkus said:

"Campy humor is paired with themes of social justice in this fast-paced, clever second volume in the Feral series. ... [T]he dynamics among characters are fascinating and are well-served by the first-person narration alternating between Yoshi and Kayla. A neat, smart middle novel that clearly sets the stage for an epic showdown between those who champion the rights of shifters and those blind to their humanity."

Kayla is a strong female protagonist, perfect for readergirlz, while many will swoon for Yoshi. The pacing is fast, the mystery layered, and the adventure full. Congratulations, Cynthia! Happy book birthday!
