The Gorgon's Gaze

by Julia Golding

This book is about Connie, a 12 year old girl who has a unique power with mythical creatures. She is the most important member of her society, and is in danger from the shape-shifter, Kullervo. Her parents; however, do not believe this, and send her off to live with her aunt and uncle. Col, Connie’s best friend,  has his own set of troubles, mainly centered on his mother and her companion.

This book was a good book, and really makes you think about how humans are damaging the environment. It puts an interesting spin on the message to save the earth, and brings that message into a story.

I would recommend this book to people who like reading about mythical creatures, or animals in general. The book is told from 2 perspectives, so it can be a bit confusing if you don't like that. It is also full of twists and turns, and will keep you guessing throughout.
