“On the highway of life, I am roadkill.” That is how eighteen-year-old Mar started the last assignment of her long high school career. About to graduate after feeling both invisible and unwanted for the past four years, Mar thinks she is only waiting to get out of her small, Canadian town and be noticed. After a sudden breakup with her swoon-worthy, musician boyfriend she is steered into an investigation into her mother’s death by the most unexpected visitor: a mangy, sassy cat claiming to be her guardian angel. When secrets of her dead mother’s past resurface revealing that her ex-preacher dad might not be her biological father Mar risks learning truths she never wanted to know. Why is it that she never felt like she belonged and is it possible that this dead cat is just using her like everyone else? What she doesn’t know is what everyone is scared of, the start of the next World War might just depend on a choice she needs to make. Cover artwork by Nolan Mercer.

life from a teenager’s point of view. Mar is just trying to graduate high
school finally after feeling invisible and unwanted for the last 4 years. All
she wants is to graduate and get out of her small Canadian town.
me, this book was very different from what I normally read, but I found it to
be an incredible read. First, the arrogant boyfriend breaks her heart, a dead
cat comes into her life, and secrets revealed. There is so much going on in
Mar’s life, it becomes overwhelming for her.
author has a very good imagination, and I would enjoy reading more books by
her. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who can relate to a unique
way of looking at life from a teenager’s point of view.
would like to thank Nicole for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my
