About the book:
How can a young cat pick between everything she has ever wanted and everyone she has ever loved? In this science fiction/fantasy, middle grade chapter book, Kimba lives the care-free life of a much loved house cat, but what she really wants is freedom and the wild life for which she was born. Then she learns a secret that changes everything, including her destiny. Will she join this mysterious cat conspiracy? Kimba must choose between the freedom she craves and the human family she loves.
Some cats are born on Earth and never know who they really are. Others are sent. They are undercover for their years on Earth. They know who they are. They know that they are not from Earth at all. And they are part of a bigger plan. Kimba and Hiro are the first kind of cat. Their mother could have explained things—told them who they really are. But they were accidently separated from her the day they were born. These sisters would learn to call a human “Mama.” They would know nothing about the grand plan and their own destiny. Life would be simple and carefree. But it wouldn’t stay that way...1
“Aaaahhwwwwooo,” Hiro yelled. And then mostly annoyed, as her sister pretended to take a death grip on her neck, “Get off!” With some minor hissing and a bit of a tussle, the sisters ended up in a furry pile—leaving even more fur on the bathroom floor behind them—with Kimba on top. Then the hunt was over. Kimba, the skinny white kitten, had defeated her prey.
Kimba took a moment to lick the fur flat on her befuddled sister’s head, and then she began grooming her own fur back into place. Hiro staggered to her feet, shook herself off, and wandered into the bedroom for a nap.
Totally worth it, Kimba thought, as she licked and smoothed. Once she was done and every hair was back in place, she climbed back into the tub to lie in wait for the next victim. Kimba, the master hunter, the white lion, was on the prowl.
