Take a trip to another world with Mimzy and learn how what she thought was her worst problem was a blessing in disguise. #TheCorandira Station @carolkeenauthor
This was such a fun book to read with a cat as the main character. Mimsy is intelligent and strangely alone on the ship. I loved how with a simple scan the injuries were found on her and repaired. It can't be easy to walk around with a dislocated hip. I would be petrified if I found myself all alone on a ship in space. It was interesting to read the description of the ship and all the stations it had on board. Wouldn't it be exciting to explore all the different areas and look at the equipment? For Mimsy is isn't so much fun when you find yourself all alone and wonder where the crew is?
The story is filled with fun little quips like, " Look what the cat drug in." I love the humor in the story and it certainly kept my attention. As Mimsy goes to another planet in search of her crew, she finds herself having dreams that are starting to make sense. Being born with a deformity was hard for Mimsy. She wanted to be accepted by others so much, but it was hard for others to see her true beauty on the inside. How many of us have judged someone by their outward appearance?
The book is not very long, but it sure has a powerful message. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" as the saying goes. We tend to look at the outside and not the inside. We judge people because they look different from us but God wants us to treat everyone with love. Through this story the author packs a great lesson in treating others as we would like to be treated.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
