Anted as her father decides to make her brother the next kennel steward Going against her father's wishes and becoming increasingly sure of her special gift of understanding these incredible dogs Lara risks eve. I picked this up at random from the library I like Russia I like dogs and I like a strong willed female lead so why notI'm aware that this is young adultwritten for kids But I wasn't very impressed with the writing I personally don't believe you have to write down to kids so they can understand I think that removes the learning aspect of reading at that ageIt was a cool idea and a decent little story A bit cliche for my taste but oh well I would have liked the visions a lot better if Lara had been special and uniue in having them though rather than it ending up being some weird genetic thing supposedly passed down through their family for ages but also banned from use That was all kinda weirdBut A for effort

Laras GiftRything when she reveals the truth about her visions Now she must save Zar her favorite borzoi and the one she raised from birth from a hungry pack of wolves Only then can she find her own extraordinary destiny. I enjoyed this one It's an entertaining middle grade if not a bit violent for its target audienceThe beginning while interesting upset me a bit Lara's father was very oppressive toward her but I know this was just being true to the time periodThe father's mentality as a dog breeder is sadly the same mentality of many breeders to this day; if the pup isn't born perfect for shows or the hunts it isn't worth anything As someone who works in rescue and experienced this firsthand I think this is good for kids to read so they can see that this is a realityI liked learning about Russia I find this to be a very interesting setting and I hope to read books taking place there in the future I loved that this was informative but not boringI was very surprised at the amount of violence in this story I thought this would be a light read but this ended up being rather gory in parts which I usually like expect that in this case a lot of the violence was toward animals I can imagine some younger children who pick this up for the cute dog on the cover being upset by thisIf you're a mature middle grade reader or someone who wants to learn about Russia or how dog kennels work I think you would find this book very interesting It's rather short and not boring at all even with the historical aspect
