Amanda’s life is a zoo. For real. Her family owns the Noble’s Ark Zoo, and it’s equipped her with a particular set of skills. She can worm goats, bottle-feed a sick chinchilla, and wrangle a wayward snake with her eyes closed. But when her father becomes a local TV celebrity where he’s pecked, clawed, and pooped on for Central Florida’s viewing pleasure, she’s not sure how to cope with it. Change her name? Move to another city? Then there’s Kyler. He’s her best friend—the guy who taught her to belch the alphabet kind of friend. And friends don’t date friends. Right?
When the family is in danger of losing the zoo, it may take more than a working knowledge of gator wrestling and avoiding the business end of a skunk for Amanda to handle a second-string mobster, find a missing body, and convince Kyler they’re meant to be together. All this without suffering an epic social media fail. #zoolife
Loved the concept of this book… hate the cover. Seriously, it makes me so sad that such a fun story is being representative by a cover that looks like it was designed in Paint. This story is all about a girl who lives at a zoo, so I knew I’d love the story right away, which is why I picked it up on NetGalley in spite of the cover. And thankfully, the writing didn’t disappoint. This was a really fun story, following Amanda as she went above and beyond to help her family and save her home!
