The See Through LeopardFrom bestselling and award winning author Sibel Hodge comes a inspirational coming of age novelMost sixteen year old girls are obsessed with their looks but Jazz Hooper's obsessed for a different reason After a car accident that kills her mum Jazz is left with severe facial scars and retreats into I was delighted to receive a copy of The See Through Leopard for review through a giveaway on All About Animals It’s a YA novel about a griefstricken British teenager whose life is transformed by a leopard Last year I'd read Endangered by Eliot Schrefer which received the National Book Award Endangered focuses on an African teen whose mother runs a refuge for primates I consider it the best novel I read in 2012 I hoped to be as impressed by Sibel Hodge's bookI thought that the cover was wonderful but it did lead me to expect a sentimental novel without realism This is not the case Sibel Hodge has evidently done a great deal of research on leopards and the situation of wildlife in Kenya A portion of the profits from this book's sale will be going to Panthera an organization for the preservation of big catsThe book opened in England where the protagonist Jazz was shattered by the death of her mother and the circumstances surrounding it It was obvious that Jazz was in crisis Jazz's father a veterinarian decided to move them to a game reserve in Kenya where he and his wife had worked before Jazz was born It's there that Jazz encountered the leopard who changed her lifeThe See Through Leopard isn't all lectures about animals There are action plot elements and the characters are well portrayed I particularly liked Zach the young aspiring filmmaker whose father runs the reserve Zach becomes Jazz's friend and he is terrifically supportive Although I liked this novel very much for its compelling themes and characterization it's not flawless There are times when the lectures get out of hand Readers who are tolerant of overt didacticism in fiction may not consider this a problem The most notable example is Jazz's speech toward the end of the novel I would have preferred breaking up the speech's text with Jazz's thoughts while giving the speech or a bit of audience response Including context makes fiction evocative I do recommend this book I actually loved most of it but I wouldn't be honest if I didn't include the flaws of a book along with its strengths in my review I posted a longer version of this review in September 2013 called Crimes Against Animals Valiantly Opposed in The See Through Leopard by Sibel Hodge It can be found at
