If you've ever read any of the V.I. Warshawski books, you might think you're very familiar with this character. But the V.I. Warshawski in Wildcat isn't like the V.I. we all have come to know and love. First, this V.I. is known as Victoria. Second, she's only ten years old. Victoria is experiencing societal injustice and the fight to overcome it for the first time with the civil rights marches in Chicago for equal access to housing. Victoria's parents are very supportive of Dr. Martin Luther King and his crusade. Victoria's aunt and uncle, not so much. Adding to the drama and confusion of the summer is the fact that even the local Catholic priest and his church member's are against these desegregation efforts. Although Victoria is concerned about the ongoing battles against injustice in her city, she's more concerned about what might be happening to her father, a local police officer. When Victoria hears something that indicates her father is in jeopardy, she does the only thing she can think of and heads off to warn him. Things don't exactly go as planned, but we do witness where and when the spunk, smarts, and sass we've come to expect with V.I. originated. (No, I'm not going to tell you everything that happens. Read the book!) Wildcat is a short story and an incredibly fun and fast read. I've read a few of the V.I. Warshawski stories in the past and reading Wildcat has made this reader want to return to this series. If you've read any V.I. stories in the past or are a diehard V.I. fan, you'll definitely want to read Wildcat. Seriously, go and grab your copy today!
