A teenager with enough motivation and energy to fuel a space shuttle, Torrance Olivia Maddox, fondly known as Tor, is the first to discover the secret to a new strain of influenza plaguing the West Coast. Turns out the flu is being transmitted to humans through dogs! And Tor will stop at nothing to ensure the safety of man's best friend - all 60 million American dogs.
Tor has a delightful, quirky, and unique voice. I laughed out loud so many times! Tor is fun, likable, and she changes so much over the course of the story. The development for all main characters throughout the book is really well-done, as are the individual voices of those like Tor's brother, her parents, and the government agents she has to deal with.
Tor's adventures are not so over the top that they're unbelievable, although she does get into some outrageous hijinks. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble she gets into next time!
A fantastically unique series opener, TOR MADDOX: UNLEASHED is fun, adorable, and thrilling!
