I haven't done anything with my life. . . . I need to do something . . . like Mom and Dad and Hank do all the time. And I need to do it now.
Meet 12-year-old Kat—short for Katharine. She thinks she has two weeks to do something worthy of being adopted by her wonderful foster family. But cancer, medicine, and the older kids at Starlight Animal Rescue make it difficult for Kat to really help out around the farm. On top of that, she's just started junior high and has to work on a project with the most popular—and demanding—girl in her class. When Kat accepts the role of “cat shrink” for her classmates' pets, could her success . . . or failure . . . be more than she can handle?
Starlight Animal Rescue: Where problem horses are trained and loved, where abandoned dogs become heroes, where stray cats become loyal companions. And where people with nowhere to fit in find a place to belong.

12-year-old Katharine, Kat for short, has been at the Starlight Animal Rescue longer than any of the other fosters, and now in two short weeks she'll be adopted by her foster family and officially be a Coolidge. But Kat doesn't feel like she deserves to be adopted, especially when lately she hasn't been contributing much at the farm. Her cancer may be in remission, but it's still left her feeling weak and she's constantly sick, which means that she doesn't even have the strength to take care of the few cats that she herself has rescued. Then to make things worse, she starts junior high and immediately has to work on a class project with the most popular girl in her class. So when things don't go exactly as planned, and things aren't looking very good she begins to feel like a failure. But will Kat finally realize that she's loved for who she is and not what she does? Wild Cat, the third book in Dandi Daley Mackall's series is a truly wonderful book. Kat is such a wonderful character, and it's easy to see why those around her love her so much. And yet, how well we can relate to Kat, sometimes feeling that what we do isn't good enough. But as Mackall so wonderfully writes in her book, we are loved by an amazing God, and he loves us unconditionally, no matter what. I definitely give this book two thumbs up!

When I started reading this book, I didn't realize it was book three of a four book series. It is great as a stand-alone book, or if you're like me, now I want to read the whole series! Kat is in junior high, which is always a tough time in life, but to make it more difficult, she has cancer and it's not uncommon that she will vomit. A lot. So this is geared for girls 9-12 but because of that, I could just hear myself at that age saying "That's sooooooo gross!" Of course, for a child with cancer, this would be a welcome book because I've not read that many books that have the main characted as a teen with cancer, at least not when it discusses the effects of treatment such as the vomiting and she does remove her wig at one point as well as deciding "which hair" to wear for the day.. Another major issue addressed is foster children and adoption. In this book, Kat is going to be adopted and she feels like everyone in her family has done something great and she doesn't deserve to be a Coolidge. When a project at school comes up, she hopes it will proves she does deserve to be a Coolidge. She and Fiona decide to start a service to improve the behavior of their classmates' cats. Fiona has a cat that she calls dumb, and Kat takes it home to see how she can help it. In the end, will Fiona reject Kat as she has her feline cat? I very much enjoyed this book, and I think most tween girls would as well.
