GIVEAWAY! Blog Tour: Caterpillar (Metamorphosis Trilogy #1) by Kate Oliver

Caterpillar (Metamorphosis Trilogy #1)
written by Kate Oliver          
published by MAB Books

Why did I pick this book: I was fortunate enough to participate in the blog tour through YA Bound for this book. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had and finished rather quickly. I didn’t want to put it down until this unique story ended. 

Cara Gallagher is a very smart, yet quite naive high school senior. Her attitude and behavior at school was not endearing to me. I didn’t like her at school. She bothered me. That is until the end, Cara definitely redeemed herself in my eyes. 

Liv is an older sister that everyone would want to have. She is very protective of Cara yet gives her her own space and life. She loves Cara and is always there for her, wanting her to have a great life. She helped keep Cara from her parents’ drama. 

Will was the typical young adult love interest. He was perfect but had a catch. He falls for someone he shouldn’t and he has a past that he is reluctant to reveal. Will was sweet and caring and, at times, overly romantic…but not in a bad way. I liked him despite all of the usualness of a young adult love interest. He and Cara made a great pair.

The writing was well done and it helped the book to keep moving. The end – last quarter – of Caterpillar came out of left field for me. I so was not expecting it. It was very good and provided such a great climax…I just wasn’t expecting it. It really grabbed me and kept me glued to my Kindle until the book was over. 

Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book to any YA fan!!!

Will I read it again: I will not read this book again but I will be anxiously awaiting the next two books in the Metamorphosis Trilogy!!

About the book – from the publisher: In a small college town in northern California, a lonely young man is working himself to the bone to solve a sixty-year-old problem … a stranger with a will of iron and eyes the color of ice is searching for someone he can’t identify … and a girl who loves plants is about to grow roots of her own.

When Cara Gallagher’s parents are transferred overseas again, she’s off to spend her senior year of high school living with her sister, a graduate student at the famed McNair University. Cara, a girl with a passion for science and an indifference to people, hopes this move will be her first step in claiming the independence she craves. Cara has her future planned down to the letter: her college, her major, her career.

Then she saves Will Mallory’s life, and both of their futures are completely rewritten.

The last years of Will’s life have been spent shifting from one identity to the next, dodging the FBI, and trying desperately to find a way home. But Will’s home is forty-four light years away, and to reach it he’ll have to outwit the man who’s hunting him—and leave behind the only love he’s ever known.
