#BookReview: Lions and Tigers and Boys by @Vivi_Tawny ‏#LionsAndTigersAndBoys #NetGalley


About the Book:
The last thing a girl as awkward as Dani Gale should be doing is trying to learn the high wire. Yet that’s exactly where Dani ends up—at OZ, the Oswald Zinzendorf School of Circus Arts. Trying to overcome her shyness is near impossible when her new partner—the hottest guy she’s ever laid eyes on, and whose touch seems to give her poise she thought impossible—also seems to be sabotaging her progress. 

The last thing Cai Coppersmith needs is a distraction, especially in the form of the new, cute shy girl. He needs to focus on trying not to shape-shift into a tiger on school grounds, and completing his mission to keep Dani from winning the school’s high-wire competition. In fact, the entire safety of OZ is relying on Dani not succeeding. But there’s something about the girl that draws him in. She has magic, he can feel it. So he’ll do what he can to protect her, even if it means pushing her away.

About the Author: 
Tawny Stokes has always been a writer. From an early age, she’d spin tales of serial killers in love, vampires taking over the world, and sometimes about fluffy bunnies turned bunnicidal maniacs. An honour student in high school, with a penchant for math and English, you’d never know it by the foot high blue Mohawk and Doc Martens, which often got her into trouble. No longer a Mohawk wearer, Tawny still enjoys old school punk rock, trance, zombie movies, teen horror films, and fluffy bunnies. She lives in Canada with her fantastical daughter, two cats, and spends most of her time creating new stories for teens. You can visit her at www.tawnystokes.net

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I love retellings and this one was great. I loved how the author meshed shapeshifting and the retelling of OZ together.

Notes and Opinions: I wasn't to sure about this book when I started it but I learned early on that it was going to be wonderful. The author did a great job with blending two types of stories together. The normal young adult story of boy meets girl with a twist. This one was well paced with characters that I ended up loving. I cant wait for the next book in the series and I hope that we see even more of the characters of OZ and the circus school was a great idea!
