The Last Panther by Mitchell Todd - ADVISABLE

Todd, Mitchell The Last Panther, 241 pages. Delacorte Press, 2017. $20 Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Eleven-year-old Kiri has always loved the wild. In her jungle home, she becomes really good friends with a fugee named Palo. Everything changes when they find a "once were" creature. Kiri and her da get kicked out of the village and are to never return. All she wants is to be accepted as a fugee and not a "waller girl."

I liked the description of the "once were" creatures. It was really fun trying to figure out what they were. I like how she runs into many problems and how she is able to solve them. Another thing I liked was her descriptions of her surroundings. I didn't like what the fugees did to the devi of the sea, or that Kiri and her da got kicked out. Overall, it was a good book.
