The Turning: What Curiosity Kills
May 1, 2010
Plucked from foster care, Mary Richards hit the jackpot with a loving family, an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a spot in the elite Purser-Lilley Academy. But she might lose it all if people find out about the turning.
Something not human is inside Mary. Her mind is reeling and her body is rebelling. She succumbs to urges and desires she never imagined. And then there’s the bizarre physical transformation.
Struggling with her metamorphosis, Mary is sought out by two boys who share her secret. Will she reject the destiny they swear is hers? Or will she find our what curiosity kills?
You only get one chance to decide if you’ll never turn again.
I was highly intrigued about the blurb of this story but sadly, the story itself kind of disappointed me. Out of nowhere, Mary is able to turn into a cat and it's never explained why or even how she's turning furry. The characters were so one-dimensional, they were just there, like props and I felt like if they, especially Mary, would have been more explored then it would have so helped the story.
Unfortunately, The Turning left something to be desired. I think the premise for the story was really promising but the follow-through was anything but. The Turning just didn't do it for me.
