Here's a little bit of the book blurb:
Young teen Stephanie Harrington forms a telepathic bond with an intelligent alien treecat on a pioneer planet - and must fight for the freedom of her new friend and his species against highly-placed enemies determined to claim the world for humans only.
The treecats are telepathic which is great fun, as is the diaglogue between the treecats. As the story progresses the bond between Stephanie and Climbs Quickly grows and this leads to an even bigger and more deadly adventure. Obviously I'm not going to spoilerize anything fur mew, but needless to say this was undoubtedly a great read and I already have the next two books in my library waiting to go as soon as I've finished this review. That should tell mew effurything!
