This was a really good book, almost up until the very end. The adventure, the mystery, the amnesia, this all combined to make a story that just sucks you in. In the very beginning, the little animal rights mentions fit right in with the story. Of course an amnesiac living in a cabin would want to take care of injured animals!
As the story went on, though, the animal angle seemed to overtake the rest of the story. "Amnesiac who befriends young teen, takes a multi-state adventure to track down the man who may have kidnapped her" is unbelievable a storyline enough. But to throw multiple instances of saving animals (anything from coyote traps to big game hunting) just takes it too far. After following the characters on their journey to find Andi's identity and possible kidnapper, Grimes just sort of killed off that story line abruptly and went on and on with more animal rescue.
Biting the Moon takes a 14 year old character from a Richard Jury novel (Mary Dark Hope) and gives her an adventure all her own that involves murder, both human and animal and a amnesia victim friend.
Animal rights is a major theme.
A quick read that's enjoyable.
