    1. 4.5When I borrowed this book from a library looking for an easy & quick read I didn't expect that I will be hooked. What a pleasant surprise! Set in a world that is very familiar to ours, (think of Alternative Universe) with one major difference magic and magical creatures (and magical persons) are real and live with humans. Emma's world is a bit too much similar with ours and that the main reason why I can't give 5 stars. I will explain why. In a world where magical creatures are real and l [...]

    2. I think this book was very intriguing and I only rated this book 4 stars is because I didn't like when Emma figured out fairies were disgusting little creatures

    3. This is one of those surprising books that didn't go quite as I expected. Most middle grade fantasy fic I'm familiar with tends to take place in a purely fantasy world (often with castles and pseudo medieval settings) for instance The Star Shard or it takes place in a modern world where fantasy is unexpected but shows up like: Cold Cereal. But rarely have I seen this contemporary urban fantasy setting that is fairly common in adult fiction in stories for kids.Emma and her parents have just moved [...]

    4. In order to find her missing sister, Emma must trust Jack, a one eyed, magic-less cat and become leader of the forest cats. On top of this she must deal with her newly judgmental friend and school bullies.I've been wanting to read this book for months. My library didn't have it so I just bought it on my nook. Then I could never find time to read it. Finally, I had an excuse. So today, I sat down, powered up my nook, and I read this book. Now this was a very good book. It was beautifully written, [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book! I loved the action, and the world a lot. I thought it was cool that people new about the enchanted creatures. I did miss the humor and romance in this book. I feel like it was lacking those two things a lot. I did enjoy Emma's character and how she thought. Definitely a good quick paced fantasy read.

    6. I LOVED this book! Truly. It is fantasy, but I didn't get lost. The characters were truly charming and I am totally going to marry Jack. I mean it. Hands off! He is my man! :) :) I can't wait for the next one!!!!!

    7. Emma, a young girl, occupies a world very much like our own -- except that creatures of mythology exist as second-class citizens, lumped together by the slang term "Crag."Emma's family has been in upheaval since her older sister went missing; her father sacrificed his career as a chef to pursue any possible leads into Helena's disappearance.The family has moved to a trailer park inhabited by various enchanted creatures, and shortly after their arrival, Emma meets a cat named Jack. He has a plan [...]

    8. I really Liked this book, It is a little cheesy but the world is incredible! If you are in a book slump, this will help!

    9. I loved the cover of CLAW, it's simple, it's magical, it says everything of what the book is. I especially enjoyed the facts given in every chapter about cats, witches and other supernatural being from CragWiki.I enjoyed the diverse cast. Emma is clever, likable, real, independent and fearless. Jack is funny, charming and a rogue. I enjoyed the talking animals; how they retain they're behaviors while being magical; the descriptions of each of them, which I found fascinating.At first, you'll thin [...]

    10. In modern-day America where magical creatures of many kinds roam (some of them dangerous to humans)Emma's older sister Helena has gone missing. Their parents will do anything to find her, even move into a rundown trailer park next to where the crags (magical beings) hang out. The first sign that anything is different is the talking cat who already lives in their trailer. Before long Emma is up to her neck in magic and danger, determined to find her sister.I'm far from being the target audience f [...]

    11. Hi!How are you?Oh, I'm good thanks!Since I finished my book, I would rate it a **** out of 5 Claws book's. I rate it a 4 because at times this book gets a little boring but, sometimes you just have to keep reading and the book will slow start getting better.That's my opinion on a book called Claws!Bye_For_Now!

    12. As a first book from this couple, this story had great potential. The idea of a very dangerous modern world where humans live alongside fantasy creatures has been done many times before, but not often quite like this. I really like the idea of rat-like creatures hacking people's cellphones and an online fantasy creature wiki called "CragWiki."My biggest issue with the book is that it seems like so many things established in the first half are never followed up on, or never developed. At one poin [...]

    13. I think this novel is somewhere between childrens and young adult. The narrator and story in general made me feel this way. The narrator is twelve-year-old Emma, whose sister has gone missing. Now Emma and her family have moved to a trailer park full of magical creatures, where she also meets cat Jack. And he is willing to help her find her sister, which leads to a great adventure filled with cats, interesting magical creatures that are fun to read about (both with good and bad intentions, and b [...]

    14. 2.5 StarsClaws was a veryting book. It's a book about Emma who has just moved into a trailer in a forest full of magical creatures because her sister, Helena has gone missing. While she is there, she meets a cat named Jack who helps her find her sister. Honestly, the book never really caught my attention and I had doubts that I wouldn't like it. The beginning was very boring andblah. I feel like the authors created a very poor fantasy landscape and never really described anything with much detai [...]

    15. The book I chose to read this October was Claws by Mike and Rachel Grinti. Overall, this is an amazing book. It is about a girl named Emma, whose parents give up everything to find her sister, Helena. Her parents have spent their life savings on a missing persons search. They soon have no choice but to downgrade to a beaten trailer park on the edge of a forest. When Emma finds a new furry friend in the vents of her room, she believes that cat magic might solve her family's crisis.My personal opi [...]

    17. I love this book. The world, even though it has aspects that I've seen before in other books, is amazingly interesting and creative. The characters have understandable but complicated motivations, and the story overall is just fun to read. My main problem with this book, though, is that there isn't enough of it. There are so many things hinted and sprinkled throughout this story that never really get as much time in the spotlight as they should have, such as the segregation between the crags and [...]

    18. Claws by Mike Grinti is a story about a girl named Emma. Her sister has gone missing, forcing her and her parents to move to a crag trailer park. A few days after she moves, she meets a cat named Jack. Jack tells her he can help find her sister, all she has to do is become a human pride heart. But can she trust her new "friend?"This book was very entertaining, and good. Some parts I thought were to unnecessary to be that long, and later in the book they only had a very small roll. Through those [...]

    19. Interesting book with a lot of great world building. Emma's human family has to move into a trailer alongside crags, a term used for any magical creature, because they have used much of their finances up in order to look for Emma's missing sister, Helena. Emma discovers Jack, a cat, living in their trailer. Jack isn't just any cat. He used to be a magical cat like all other cats. He is trying to keep away from the rest of his pride, who are trying to kill him. He figures out a way for Emma to ge [...]

    20. Absolute five stars. I liked this book so much that I sometimes when I go to the library just to check it out again. I would totally recommend it to my friends.

    21. It's about this girl named Emma who moves to her new home. She has an older sister who mysteriously disappears and she’s trying to find her. Along the way, she uses magic and her cats to find her sister. Her parents almost ignore her and she kind of feels that they don’t care about her at all. When she finally finds her sister from becoming a type of magical creature, she tells her that she was happy and she ruined her happiness.This book I really liked and is the type of book that I would r [...]

    22. I know this book was written for Middle School kids, or even kids younger than that, but even with that in mind, I still didn't care for this book.I found it odd that right off the bat, we know about all these fictional creatures. The hag, the coatl, the pride, the trolls, the ratter, the faeries - I mean I just found it odd that people knew about them and were completely okay with it. I mean I think it would have been a bit more interesting if Emma found out about them secretly and had to hide [...]
