Shifting

Maggie May is a senior in high school, she's been in the foster care system since her aunt and cousin were killed when she was 5 years old. She's getting pretty sick of bouncing between houses. She can't seem to stay in one place very long, she's had abusive foster parents as well as good ones, but the issue is that she keeps getting picked up by the police for indecent exposure. Maggie's uncertain why, but for some reason ever since she was 16 years old on  nights with full moons she turns into a cat, which ends up tearing her clothes. Then she runs around as a cat and when she turns back into a girl, she has no clothes, thus the indecent exposure charges. Her case worker has just one more home for her to try in the very small town of Silver City, New Mexico with an older lady named Mrs. Carpenter. Maggie knows that Mrs. Carpenter will be different from the start, but she's still unsure whether or not to tell her her deep dark secret. Can Mrs. Carpenter be trusted to know about Maggie's shifting, or will it just bring her and Maggie untold danger? This was a fun book, I enjoyed the Skinwalker legend that was in the book, I enjoyed the characters. I found myself feeling bad about the things that had happened and were happening to Maggie, especially the brutality of going to high school.  I hope that there are other books to be written about Maggie, so that I can discover what happens to her after the end of this book!
