Book Review: Missy the Werecat by Author P. G. Allison
I was in a quandary about submitting this book for review. First let me say that I love fantasy, children’s books, and YA so this book seemed to be the perfect fit.
The storyline of a missing teen girl could be out of today’s news headlines. I was curious as to how the author would handle all the complications of a young shifter and no guiding force to explain what was occurring.
The storyline was great. I was happy with the content as Missy returns home having figured out not only who she is but how to control her shifter cat. If the story had ended there, I would have been very happy. But it did not!
Returning home, Missy meets a teen who is sexually abused by her step-parent. This in turn leads to promiscuity in the girl’s dating life. Missy follows this pattern as well, and this is where I get off the train.
A book written for YA, in my opinion, should not have detailed descriptions of premarital sex acts. Should our children be informed of the dangers in dating, absolutely. Should they be given detailed descriptions, not in my opinion.
I know as a parent, grandparent, and great grandparent that we do the best we can to protect our offspring. And this is why I finally decided to put my two cents in about the author and the books she publishes. The choice, however, is yours.

About the Reviewer
Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.
I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations. They are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible.
Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
