Grace has always loved the sea, and feels drawn to it more and more as she passes her 14th birthday. Yet there are many distractions back on dry land - her strange vivid dreams, her demanding swimming coach, the attentions of the gorgeous Nik Bentley, and the worries about the downy skin she constantly tries to hide.

My friend recommended this book for me a while back and said she enjoyed it immensely. I was ready for a book similar to Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings, as we both read that book and judging by the cover (of Fur), it looked like it had something to do with swimming/water. I loved Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings, and was expecting almost the same amount of "quality" from Fur.

The beginning was alright; I can't say it was amazing but it wasn't bad either. It was the middle that really bored

From the blurb, I was worried that Fur would be just another worthy, but unexciting "issues" novel, but I was pleasantly surprised. The mixture of fantasy and reality makes Fur an intriguing and diverting read.

Grace feels more at home in the sea than she does on dry land. This makes her a bit of an oddity to her classmates, but when she starts to grow fur Grace feels even more strange. This clearly isn't one of the normal changes she expected with puberty. Could there be some connection to her l

Just by reading the blurb, I was enticed and wanted to read it immediately. I loved how it built up to any big reveals or even small ones. It has some different meanings and you can relate with the main character in a lot of ways. Overall, I love this book and I think you should read it, if you already haven't. :) <3

After reading Piper by Meg Harper, I was half-expecting Fur to be just as good.
It was good, but not great. It was a little boring at times but still fun.
To be honest though, the only reason I stay with it to the end was to see if the main girl went with who I wanted her to go with. Simple pleasures, really.

I really loved Piper By Meg Harper, so I had to read Fur. It was a enjoyable quick read - but no where near as brilliant as The Piper though. 3/5 =]

I remember it being a bit strange but I guess it helped, I quite liked how weird and unexpected the story was.

A really good book, I liked the concept and the mythology and the characters were really interesting but I felt the end was a little lacking.
