So well written I felt like I was next to her in this zoo! I was seeing through her eyes and feeling her fear. This is now on of my top five favourite books.
The narration of this book was good, but I'm afraid that's where my praise ends. Highly disappointing. There was room for so much potential, yet this book falls flat. I won't spoil it for anyone who wants to take their chances, but the ending is terrible. I think maybe the author rushed the book. Just my opinion.
