Fairview Felines by Michele Corriel
Release Date: Oct 5, 2010
Publisher: Blooming Tree Press
The Story: All the cats in Fairview disappeared and only Thomas Weston, newspaperman extraordinaire (and eighth grader) can find them. All the while Thomas battles the never-ending hysterical headlines that pop up in his head!
My Review: This is a cute story for young teens. Watching as Thomas grows and learns that you can do anything you set your mind to. Also that you can fall in love at any age. Corriel has created a story to show teens that it's ok to do what you love, as long as your homework doesn't suffer! Thomas had a hard time in math, until he found a way that it made sense. Using his love of the newspaper, it helped him with fractions. But the biggest thing for Thomas, was trusting in his gut when it came to all the disappearing cats.
