Eleven-year-old Kiri has a secret: wild things call to her. More than anyone else, sheâs always had a special connection to animals.
But when Kiri has an encounter with the last known Florida panther, her life is quickly turned on end. Caught between her conservationist father, who wants to send the panther to a zoo, and the village poachers, who want to sell it to feed their families, Kiri must embark on a journey that will take her deep into the wilderness.
There has to be some way to save the panther, and for her dad and the villagers to understand each other. If Kiri canât figure out what it is, sheâll lose far more than the panthersâsheâll lose the only home sheâs ever known, and the only family she has left.
