    This is surprising, unconventional, interesting, haunting supernatural thriller But it also repetitive, nonsensical, awkward reading At some parts you question the author s motives to write this book because I definitely had some hard time connect with the characters and twin sister in the woods part of the story, well so sorry but I didn t buy it and ending is also haphazard, not quite satisfying with so many unanswered or not so well answered questions, too many blank spots But I still ackn This is surprising, unconventional, interesting, haunting supernatural thriller But it also repetitive, nonsensical, awkward reading At some parts you question the author s motives to write this book because I definitely had some hard time connect with the characters and twin sister in the woods part of the story, well so sorry but I didn t buy it and ending is also haphazard, not quite satisfying with so many unanswered or not so well answered questions, too many blank spots But I still acknowledge the efforts of the author build something from scratch and telling us something unique, dazzling, twisty And writing style, pacing was also good Problematic parts are story s direction and irritating characters you may not connect with their stories or you may have no reason to care for them This is story of Jolene, whose mother disappeared into thin air fourteen years ago, suffering from sleep deprivation, barely keeping her eyes open at her classes, feeling the burden of secret she carries She has a twin living in the woods, running wild and free Hmmm really and Jolene starts to meet with her at the nigh time At some parts I wondered maybe Jolene is delusional and she created her sister on her mind kind of explanation will be presented to save the story s sake but spoiler free it didn t happen So I m stopping right now not to giveclues or spillingbeans I could be snappy, irritating reviewer who givesclues and ruins the spirit of the book.Overall I didn t like the progression of the story but I appreciate the author s trying and some parts of the book picked my curiosity as well I wanted to learnSo 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 for these moments Special thanks to NetGalley and Delacorte Press for sharing this original ARC in exchange my honest review

Ever since Jolene Jo was five, she told her aunt and her grandmother who raised her that she had a twin sister living in the woods They never believed her, but whenever Jo could she would sneak out at night to run in the woods with her sister Lee The normal rules don t apply here Tonight is magic. Lee is becomingandinsistent that Jo joins her in the woodsbut something is holding Jo back And when Lee finds out what that isshe attacks.Isolated and in danger, Jo must make the biggest decision of her life one that could make or break her forever She steps closer, holds out a thin dirty hand. So, for the most part I liked the book The beginning was solid I LOVED not knowing whether Lee was real or not I also loved the way she interwove in the story of the two girls However, as time went on and Lee becamesolid in life theI felt pity towards her She wasn t some brave spirit like her sister made her out to be, she was a kid who was abandoned A feral child I also felt like Jo was a bit too naive here her sister was very, very thin and not by choice As a freshman in high school, I feel like she should ve knownbetter In addition, the ending of the book last third felt very circle y and didn t have that BOOM that I was expecting With thanks to Netgalley, Delacorte Press and Maria Romasco Moore for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review

    This had a really great premise, but the execution fell short for me The repetitive narrative, mixed with the ending that left much to be desired just outweighed the atmospheric writing I would certainly give this author another try in the future, and perhaps teens and sporadic readers of the genre will find this one riveting and uniqueMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

    Thank you NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest review.So, I don t really know what I just read Am I okay what that Sure This follows a fifteen year old girl named Jolene who has had a seriously messed up life so far Her mother went missing when she was born and her grandmother and aunt have been raising her all her life Jolene sees a girl one night out by the woods and realizes this girl looks just like her She goes out and realizes it s her feral, wild twin sister Ever since t Thank you NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest review.So, I don t really know what I just read Am I okay what that Sure This follows a fifteen year old girl named Jolene who has had a seriously messed up life so far Her mother went missing when she was born and her grandmother and aunt have been raising her all her life Jolene sees a girl one night out by the woods and realizes this girl looks just like her She goes out and realizes it s her feral, wild twin sister Ever since that night, Jo goes out and runs with her sister at night in the woods.I really didn t get the point of this story and the characters all fell flat for me, not to mention it was very unbelievable Jo just sees this girl out in the woods and is like oh okay that must be my twin sister Some Kind of Animal was a wild ride because I literally had no idea where the storyline was going I thought it would be focused on mental health and maybe Jo was making up this twin sister because of how awful Jo s life has been but I was wrong I just felt as though it was kind of all over the place, so many things happened with no consequences as well Maybe, it s just me and I didn t get what the author was trying to do when writing this, but for me it just was very out there and kind of weird

    Thanks NetGalley for the chance to review this title ahead of the release date SOME KIND OF ANIMALS delivers on its premise We have a girl who s secret sister Lee who lives in the woods, eats animals and talks with one word sentences, and whom she sneaks out with nightly to run and play with I mean, how creepy is that Nobody believes her when things go awry and Lee makes a rare appearance in a public setting and attacks one of Jo s friends This brings a downward spiral for Jo when she runs Thanks NetGalley for the chance to review this title ahead of the release date SOME KIND OF ANIMALS delivers on its premise We have a girl who s secret sister Lee who lives in the woods, eats animals and talks with one word sentences, and whom she sneaks out with nightly to run and play with I mean, how creepy is that Nobody believes her when things go awry and Lee makes a rare appearance in a public setting and attacks one of Jo s friends This brings a downward spiral for Jo when she runs away with Lee, and her friend Savannah, planning on living int the words and protecting her sister forever and ever A pipe dream that goes terribly wrong I love me a good mystery and a good wilding sister living in the woods and being all cryptic and crazy I live for these types of books This book packs all the punches It s heartfelt and gritty and depressing AF yet there s still a glimmer of hope when it comes to Jo and Lee that maybe all can be forgiven and all can be all right in the end I mean, this is a strange book and I roll over for strange books Now, part of me wanted to believe that Lee wasn t really real and Jo was having some sort of mental breakdown, but when I was wrong, it made it all theterrifying Looking back at these reviews it looks like I am in the minority here But it does go to show you that you have to be a certain type of reader for a certain type of book So, Maria, please do not fret A book like this is a risk for debut authors and many won t understand it I do Bring me all the creepy and all the weird and add me on Insta or something, yea

    The premise of this is crazy How would it be to have this secret twin sister who lives in the woods That sounds so unbelievable, it s no wonder people in town thought Jo was lying or had some sort of mental breakdown Jo is a complicated character, she was raised by a very religious and abusive grandmother for part of her life, then her aunt took her and treated her like a grown up Having Lee is the one thing Jo clings to so I understand why she d do anything for her, but it led to some prett The premise of this is crazy How would it be to have this secret twin sister who lives in the woods That sounds so unbelievable, it s no wonder people in town thought Jo was lying or had some sort of mental breakdown Jo is a complicated character, she was raised by a very religious and abusive grandmother for part of her life, then her aunt took her and treated her like a grown up Having Lee is the one thing Jo clings to so I understand why she d do anything for her, but it led to some pretty terrible choices The adult in me was dying when Jo got deeper into trouble and I wanted to tell her to just find a responsible adult already lol The mystery of Jo s mom disappearing was interesting, but it resolved too fast and the second half of the story was mostly chaos If there had beento Jo s mom and Lee, I think it would have beenengaging The ending wasn t exactly what I wanted, but it wrapped up well enough
