My Review:

This is the 3rdbook I’ve read by this author. I love the way she sucks you into the story that you want the world to stop so you can just read. I read this book slowly because I didn’t want it to end, but at the same time I was eager to see how it ended.

Evangeline has survived a horrible car accident. Unfortunately, her father also died in that accident. Her mother is not an alcoholic and not what her daughter needs.

Evangeline ends up in a program for troubled teens. It’s not your normal program though. She gets to work with animals. She is able to help them as much as they help her.

There are so many emotions that take place in this book. You really feel for Evangeline and want to just take her in your arms and mother her in the way she needs. She is forced to grow up way too fast.

I totally fell in love with the characters. I would actually love to see a follow up book to see how Evangeline is doing now. She is one of those characters that just stays with you.

Fragile Creatures

Seventeen-year-old Evangeline Frost had a great life, until the car accident that killed her father and turned her mother into a bitter alcoholic. Unable to bear the guilt, Evangeline attempts to take her own life, saved only by the memory of her beloved father.

Left with no other options, Evangeline is enrolled in a program for troubled teens at Kindred Hides Wildlife Preserve. There she meets Caster, a keeper as annoying as he is caring; Jett and Lettie, who treat her more like a daughter than troubled teen; and Ruke, a prized giraffe in mourning for his lost mate.

Immersed in the preserve with her new friends, Evangeline finally begins to heal. But the haunting memories of the accident and her mother’s unforgiving words threaten to destroy her progress. Only her new friends and their unconditional support, along with her own special connection with Ruke, can save her.

Evangeline must learn that there is redemption for her father’s death, and that the bonds between human, animal, and life are not as fragile as she once thought.
