When puberty brings on her first shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years - until finally learning to change back. She can change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two-year disappearance was because she'd been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats, and no alpha. She's a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do great things in today's world, amongst humans. She only has her instincts to guide her, and those drive her to train herself to extremes. She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.

Fun, entertaining, LOL
From her having to change with out knowing, to her standing up for her friend, to her falling in love.
She has a lovely voice to listen to, and is great to relax with.
Missy is very sassy and the banter with her fiends makes you chuckle out loud. I don't think this is a very sad story so no tears.
This is not the typical shifter paranormal story, she has no pack, no-one to learn from or relate too. She needs to figure out everything herself. It's not just about being a Werecat but about learning how to be a young woman with unique and special abilities and how to best use those for herself and others.
Missy. She is a very complex character and she is very likeable. Strong but not too much so that it makes her untraceable.
What would you do if you turned into a Werecat. Where would you go?

I probably would to someone who wanted an uncomplicated fun read.
I would but for the same reasons I put for the previous question.
She did though I dont think she enjoyed what she was actually narrating.
It didnt come across as a book she actually liked.
Yeah why not ,,, I dont mind books which dont take themselves too seriously.
Ok now the Cons about these books,,
The Author used "very special" "special" and "magical" and other phrases way way too much,,, needs to expand there vocabulary & vocabulary in descriptions used by characters in regards to the main character !
Plays to the sterotypes of Gangsters , Military and Other persons so you expect the gangsters to be like the Goodfellas and the Military to be like A Few Good Men.
The sex scenes are ,,, a bit puerile and really not needed or not as much ,,, there also a how I would imagine an 16 or 17 year old would write them.
I skip passed these as there ,,, just irrelevant to an otherwise good idea storywise.
The first couple of sexual descriptions in the first book were,, a bit creepy if im honest too.
I was at one point going to turn off but I thought,,,ive heard worse,, lets see where this is going.
If this is what the author was aiming for in some parts of the book ,, I cant really say without giving some of the parts of the book away ,, then it worked, creeped out and slightly uncomfortable.
I would like the Author to maybe take the writing out of the juvenile stage and onto being written in a grown up adult way.
It wouldnt take that much which would make the continuing Missy storys more compelling.
There good and entertaining if you can get passed some of the previous subjects and they have kept me reading / listening.
For someone who has over 500 plus books on there Kindle alone and over 4000 books in my collection ,, I dont suffer poor reads well but enjoyed these for what they were.
Hope this helps.
Yes - I'm in enjoying the book, but I don't like the narration. I find myself either getting irritated or tuning out.
Hard to say - it's nice having a "coming of age" were story for once.
I'm enjoying the story, but I don't think that this has the right narrator
"I ALWAYS LOVE MEGHAN'S PERFORMANCE!"
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This story is decent, its more YA than I normally like, but for a shifter book its fun and fast paced....I always like Meghan's work...but this story was just not for me...Meghan is the only reason I continued it...and she did great!
"Not the Worst Story I've Listened too!"
Missy the Werecat by P.G. Allison is a coming of age story about a young teenage girl who can shift into a Werecate. Due to recessed genes passed down through the generations, she's born with the ability to shift into a Werecat and comes into her abilities once she hits puberty. This story follow's Missy as she comes into paranormal/shifter abilities, fine turns her fighting skills, matures sexually, and helps other's.
Unfortunately, this story was not for me. It had a slow start, was very fact oriented, and felt more like a prequel than a novel which I could have dealt with, but what put the nail in the coffin for me was Missy's character was too young and one dimensional for me to relate too. She's comes across as a 15 year old overachiever, perfect, very attractive and sexually mature.
While this story was not for me, I could see how a younger generation may like the story or where the series is heading. As for me, I will not be continuing with any of the other stories in the series. However, in the future, if P.G. Allison writes other stories or in other genres, I would consider reading/listening to them.
Meghan Kelly did a great job narrating this story.
I gave the story an overall two stars due to the writing and lack of character development.
"Please show me, don't tell me"
This felt more like listening to someone describe what happened in a book they read than actually reading a book myself. There was very little dialogue or action and way too much dry "this happened and then this happened." The whole book felt like a preface and I kept waiting for the actual story to start.
I tried to like it. A YA Paranormal story about a werecat with my name seemed super fun and light but it was just not engaging or entertaining. So boring.
no i wouldnt i dont like listen to the same books ive listen to or read again
the second book to this series
I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair review
Book was great. Gonna start the 2nd book right away. Sometimes it was hard to understand the narrator when she switched characters.
Very good story and lively blend of action and character development.
easy pace to listen and not overly developed on any one scene
Only criticism is the voices of many of the males voices lack realism and I wish the narration could include male and females for a proper effect.
I had a few chuckles but the story wasn't one that should make a person laugh or cry
On to Book 2
"Loved the book and story"
I loved the book and so glad it is on audio but I am not so sure about the narrator, I have heard much better
"Good book could have less random crimes in it"
I liked how it was a coming of age story. Though I found the amount of rape and criminal activity to be unlikely. The main character was always stumbling upon some crime or something, then rescuing the hapless victim, it got a bit repetitive after a while. Without the crimes it reads like someone's experience of high school, only with more turning into a mountain lion. I got this book in exchange for a review
"Hope to see all the series."
I have read these books on Kindle first and I reread them every now and then (mostly when a new one comes out). I really enjoy audible books so I try and get audible versions of print books I enjoy. This is the first book in the Missy story and the story is a little rough but the series, in my opinion, gets better and the writing style gets better. These are quick, fast past adventures. The reader does a good job and I hope that the rest of the series is also done.
"could of been better"
the narrator made every other women sound like a nasally jersey queito, like Rosann or Fanny. it was almost to annoying. Also they gave Missy a little too much common sense and too smart for a hormonal teenage girl which eventually she eventually grew into.
