Juliet Wildfire Stone wants nothing more than to fit in at her private school, but with her Native American features and grandfather who is a medicine man, she feels out of place with the blonde-haired, blue-eyed snobs. Things are about to get even more awkward when Juliet begins to experience debilitating headaches brought on by the incessant voices in her head. She knows she can't tell her mom and her grandfather only seems to talk in confusing riddles. However when Juliet and her best friend, Troy, stumble upon a murder Juliet learns of a secret society whose purpose is to protect the Chosen one...her! Now Juliet must choose to either embrace her Native American roots and save her people or allow them to parish at the hands of the Seeker.
Wind Catcher is a well developed story with a rich, captivating plot. I found myself becoming lost within the pages, yearning to find out more. Juliet is an intriguing character and her struggle between fitting in and doing what's right make it easy for readers to identify with her. Although she remains stubborn and hot-headed throughout the story, her transformation and acceptance of her heritage is compelling.
Wind Catcher is a definite must read and I highly recommend the book for young adult readers.
