P.A.W.S (Review)Magic. Cats. Transfiguration. Underground Secret Societies. Sold.
This book sounded fun the moment I read the synopsis and thankfully, the author was kind enough to reach out to be to review the title. So glad. 
I'm a cat lover. I love all animals, dogs, hamsters, fish, rabbits. But I am a cat person and I won't deny it. That's part of what drew me in about this book. When Miri discovers the ability to transform herself into a cat. It's a dream come true, I mean, a cats life am I right? A pampered cat at least. Sleep, Eat, Play, Repeat. Imagine getting to pick and choose that life? It's like being Professor McGonagall. If you don't get that reference, what are you even doing with your life?
The story begins with the death of Miri's Grandmother. Sad. Worse, she's' sent to live with an aunt and uncle who have no intention of caring for her. Instead, they send her off to boarding school immediately.  This turns out to be good because it's here that she eventually discovers P.A.W.S The Partnership of Animagi, Werewolves and Shapeshifters. I love a good acronym. Her power is tied to an amulet that was left to her by her Grandmother and there are people who are willing to kill to get it. Cue the dangers! 
“You never know how strong you really are until you are tested." Is one of my favorite quotes from this book.
It's a fast-paced fun read. It could be read as a stand-alone but could definitely see a sequel following up.
