Savage to Savvy
Psychology graduate, Heidi Harper is appointed to work with Professor Mala, pioneer of a new project to rehabilitate dog-reared feral child, Nicki. Heidi is soon asking questions and her mission takes on sinister overtones. As the truth outs, the lives of all concerned begin to unravel. Savage To Savvy is a psychological novel.
Uncaged Review: They call her the devil’s corpse child, Nikki for short. She had been found living in the wild near a derelict barn with a pack of dogs. Heidi Harper who mainly just scraped by with her psychology degree has been asked by the professor to help out on a new project, involving the rehabilitation of children with multiple deficits. Heidi fits the bill nicely and we get the feeling in the story that things aren’t as they seem and that the doctors are using Nikki as some sort of experiment that will lead to a major breakthrough in the social living of today’s children. Some parts of the story are odd as you learn of Nikki’s sexual encounter with one of the other girls living at the hotel. If you dismiss this from the actual story, it turns out to be a rather interesting read. There’s also a good background story of some of the characters and the story fits nicely, like a jigsaw – maybe a pack of dogs, no pun intended. Some major plot secrets are revealed halfway through the book and its quite fun to see the write use the actual title of the book in the book.
I would highly recommend this book as even the storyline leaves you saying wow. Reviewed by Jennifer
