The See-Through Leopard by Sibel Hodge is the story of Jazz who meets with an accident and loses her mother. The accident leaves some facial scars which make her conscious of her looks. She falls into a kind of depression. It is at that phase in her life that her father decides to move to a game sanctuary in Kenya. She finds an orphaned leopard cub there and her association with that animal takes her on a path of healing and love.
I found the book beautiful with lovely moments. The book has a purpose and a moral that is highly motivational. A percentage of the proceeds of the sales of this book goes to Panthera, an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the wild cats of the world. The book teaches you how to love and heal yourself. It is the journey of a girl who finds love, discovers herself, and finally embarks on a journey of mental and spiritual healing.
The See-Through Leopard touches you on many levels. The love and compassion Jazz feels for the leopard is worth mentioning. The book has an educational theme which speaks about the extinction of animals, poaching, and endangered species. The story has a circular effect. The emotions are raw and it calls out to humans to rise and protect these wild cats before all of them disappear from the earth. The backdrop of the African jungle makes the story and narrative scenic.
