Booklist - 04/15/2021 From the author of the popular Clique books comes an imaginative new series set within the halls of an unusual middle school: the all-girls Center for Human-Animal Reform and Manners, aka Charm House. Though she looks like an average girl, Sadie has never felt she fits in; maybe it’s her unruly hair, muscled physique, or nocturnal sleep patterns. After a few too many bizarre incidents get Sadie expelled from regular school, Miss Flora—headmistress of Charm House—takes the girl on, promising to help teach Sadie how to develop and control her animal side. Not long after her arrival, a mysterious creature begins exacting vengeance on a self-absorbed clique known as the Pack, prompting Sadie to try to find out what is going on and what secrets Charm House is hiding. An evil science institute, literal cattiness, new friendships, and explorations of identity are all woven through this fun, fast-paced read, guaranteed to fly off the shelf. Thankfully, an aggressive publishing schedule will see two more installments due out in the next year. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
