It was a little boring at first but it had a good storyline to it. I liked everything that happened and the characters were easy to get to know. Sharon Creech is such a great author I just like saying I have read all her books. :) happy reading!!

It's not easy being a girl of two worlds, but Sunny is just that. Born in the United States to Nigerian parents, Sunny moves back to her parents' homeland where her American accent and albino skin don't help her to fit in. She is 'Akata': not quite American, but not quite African, either. And Sunny is about to discover that while she was born to a family of Lambs - people with no magic - she is a Leopard, a free agent with the ability to use magic and forever unable to reveal her secret to her Lamb family. It's not easy being a girl of two worlds, and it's about to get even harder when the serial killer targeting children reveals his true intentions.
