I really liked White Cat! It had a very interesting world, very reminiscent of the X-Men world, which isn’t a bad thing ‘cause I love me some superheroes! Except in this world full of what’re called ‘Workers,’ our main character Cassel is a non-Worker. Even worse, a non-Worker in a family full of workers! He’s always felt left out, always wanted a power. But you know what they say, be careful what you wish for...
I loved the characters in the book! They had some really cool powers (even though some characters I wanted to strangle)! Cassel... he was just SO charming! I adored him! I also really liked his roommate Sam and their friend Daneca. Lila though, I didn’t care for her. She is so bossy and pushy and just borderline a bully! Literally Cassel’s words! He even admits it *shakes head* And his family... they are the worst! His mother--what she did at the end--and his brothers--what they did to Cass... I just don’t understand how they can do something like that to their little brother. I’m an older sister myself, and I cannot imagine using my younger sibling like that and doing what they did to Cass. The only decent one in the family was Cassel’s grandfather--I totally loved him!
There were a couple of shocking twists, which you know I love. I also loved that Cassel’s friends helped him out on his crazy plan. It was crazy, but it was brilliant! Cass is so cunning! And to be a con artist, I guess you have to be, lol.
Overall, I really liked this crazy world! I mean, people are discriminated against for something they can’t help. The parallels in this book to the real world make me so sad because this sort of thing has been going on forever! On the other hand, I also really liked it because it reminded me of the X-Men--they too had to deal with this sort of thing.
It’s a very intriguing series with a promising start!
