I just got Corinne's books today and here are my thoughts on them.
I thought Corinne's book 1 was a cross between Nicki and McKenna. The reason why I say Nicki is because Nicki pretty much does the exact same thing Corinne does with Flurry, only Nicki is training Sprocket to be a service dog. The reason why I say it's like McKenna's book too is the fact on how Corrine hid the truth about her parents from her friend Cassidy. McKenna did pretty much the same thing to her friends, the only difference was that McKenna was hiding the fact that she had a tutor. What I didn't like about the book was the fact that Corinne and Gwynn were always glued together. It seemed as if every chapter-it was Cori and Gwyn, Cori and Gwynn. I also feel that Gwynn wasn't a real big part of the story and I wish the story came more together. What I would have done is have the "fight" in the beginning of the book and have the rest of the book like the book Hatchet. I think that would have been more interesting. All in all, it was a good book and it was much better than her 2cnd book, which I'll review tomorrow.
