Book Description

Sandy Morrison had enough trouble trying to fit in at school while transitioning from her old life as Robert, and it's only with the help of her best friend Maggie that she gets invited to the hottest party of the year. But the invitation is a trick. Humiliated by the lead cheerleader Trisha, Sandy climbs a water tower and leaps...and then all hell breaks loose.

Saving herself with a mysterious power, Sandy soon learns that she's a witch. But before she can adjust to the shock of being another kind of freak hidden in normal society, she is rocked by another stunning revelation: her best friend's family is a clan of werecats, and werecats and witches have been at war for over three hundred years...

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Story August 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
(cross-posted from the blog Wading Through Electronic Ink)

The Plot

Sandy is thrilled when she gets invited to cheerleader Trisha's graduation party, because people don't usually invite the "she" who used to be a "he" anywhere. But when the cheerleaders play a cruel prank on Sandy, she gets upset and jumps off the water tower - and then catches herself in mid-air. Turns out that Sandy is a witch, which is unfortunate because her best friend Maggie is a werecat, and the two species have been at war for as long as anyone can remember. Like, kill on sight kind of war. So if Sandy and her friends want to keep her alive, they have to move fast.

The Good

In a genre of cookie-cutter Bella-esque heroines, Sandy Morrison stands out as unique. I confess that I don't know a lot about transgender people, so it was cool to read from the perspectives of someone going through the transition and the people around her. But I think in a book like this it would be easy to make Sandy's being transgender the only interesting thing about her, and I really like how that is not the case. Sandy is brave and determined but also forgiving of people. She likes to go to parties and dance and have fun. And she owns a Star Trek uniform from every series.

I think one of the big themes of the book is that no one is "just" anyone. Kyle is a former druggie/sex addict who has reformed his life and was studying to be a computer programmer. Maggie defies cheerleader stereotypes but still loves being on the squad. And Trisha learns that she could be more than just a shallow rich girl.

I'm actually sitting here thinking about the great themes in this book, and it's making me cry a little.

I really enjoyed this story and can't wait for the sequel. Ms. Whitten has a unique ability to write her characters so that you slowly get to know them instead of all at once. Fantasy fiction is the current genre that I mainly read. I like soft and dark. Somehow Ms. Whitten straddles the line between soft and cute and dark and dangerous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic misdirection here; a great story results July 21, 2012
By TonyL

In Sandy Morrison and the Pack of Pussies, Zoe Whitten has given us an intriguing story about fantastical people... err, beings. Her characters are lively and full blooded (all but one, anyway), her descriptions are excellent and the story has as many twists as... as the Tail of the Dragon (a wonderful 12 mile stretch of US route 129 in North Carolina). Ms Whitten drew from a long list of inspirations to craft a story that opens taking readers one direction; leading us out into the weeds, so to speak, before a sharp turn and a new vista, completely different but still well connected, lies right there!

There are a few typos and grammatical errors, not enough to worry over even if, like me, you're obsessed with them. Ms Whitten asks for comments on the story; here are three: find a thesaurus and look up "huff." Replace every instance in the story save one with one of the alternatives. Really. At the point in the story it happens, I was so disappointed in Sandy at the water tower. I did get over it and then, of course I remembered, "She does not get eaten by the sharks at this time." Still... And the ultimate fight scene, I thought it went by too quickly. There was a big build-up, then it was over. Might just be me.

Obviously, even the slow beginning hasn't diminished my enjoyment of Sandy Morrison. While sensuality is present (as it must be, given the characters), it isn't ever in your face. Sandy holds her character throughout, and the changes others go through are all believable, making the story enjoyable. The events of the story, while fantastical on their face, all fit into the plot Ms Whitten has woven.

I am comfortable recommending Sandy Morrison and the Pack of Pussies to anyone looking for a stimulating read. Next story, Ms Whitten?
