Publisher's Summary

From international best-selling and award-winning author Sibel Hodge, The See-Through Leopard is an inspirational coming-of-age novel...

Most 16-year-old girls are obsessed with their looks, but Jazz Hooper's obsessed for a different reason. After a car accident that kills her mum, Jazz is left with severe facial scars and retreats into a dark depression.

Fearing what will happen if Jazz doesn't recover, her dad makes a drastic decision to move them from England to a game reserve in Kenya for a new start. And when Jazz finds an orphaned leopard cub, it sets off a chain of events that lead her on a two-year journey of discovery, healing, and love.

"A percentage of the royalties from the sale of this book will be contributed to Panthera, a leading international conservation organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the world's big cats, plus other wildlife conservation groups." (Sibel Hodge, author)

    "Beautifully Written!"

    Although the lead character is a 16 year old girl, I would highly recommend this book for all ages! Jazz was left horribly disfigured after a car wreck that killed her mother. After a long bout with depression her father feels that it might be best if they both move to an animal refuge in Africa. Although Jazz is unhappy in London, she doesn’t want to leave the home and all the memories that they shared with her mother. Soon after arriving in Africa, Jazz rescues an orphaned leopard cub. This is the beautifully written story of her journey.

    Story
    "Enjoyable and Enlightening!"

    This book is about the healing of a young girl and how she helps to save a leopard all while the leopard helps to save her. I found it exciting, enlightening and educational at the same time. I feel I learned a lot from it about saving animals and to love animals even more.

    Jazz a young girl of 16, is so badly scarred up from an automobile accident in which she also lost her mother in and blames herself for it. Jazz always hung out with the popular girls, but now they don't know how to act around her and some even stare and call her a freak. Totally withdrawn and depressed, Jazz's father moves her to Africa where they used to live before she was born. A wildlife conservation is where Jazz's parents used to call home.

    One day Jazz finds a little leopard cub by it's mom who is dead. Jazz takes it upon herself to raise this cub and dad suggest, they could make a documentary for National Geographic for public awareness about poachers and animals about to be extinct.

    This is an amazing story, safe for the entire family to read. The author Sibel Hodge did a fantastic job getting the message out for helping animals and held my interest at the same time! The narrator, Rada Sullivan did a superb delivery to us and was perfect for the young Jazz's voice. I found her multiple voices to be very believable. Kudos to you both!

    Story
    "Beautiful story of self discovery and conservation"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written book. You immediately feel empathy for the main character who goes on a journey of self discovery and love. I am not a teenager myself and although this book is aimed at young adults I still enjoyed it very much. Through the characters description and problems you are immediately transported back to the mind of a teenager and sucked into Jaz's world. The narrators voice certainly adds to the story and fits the character perfectly. The book has a very important message about anti-poaching and conservation. A topic I knew little about. It really opened my eyes up to the poaching problem and I felt guilty for not really paying much attention before. The author is obviously very knowledgable and passionate about anti-poaching and conservation. I love Sibel Hodge books, although I have read most of them now I'd love all of them on audio (especially The Baby Trap). I recommend this book whole heartedly! I truly delightful read. X
