From Goodreads:
Sadie Lester has been dumped with relatives for the summer. Boredom seems inevitable in her small Minnesota town until she meets Allie—a spiky-haired off-road biker with incredible grace and speed. Training for the upcoming bike race, Allie leads Sadie and cute fellow cyclist Joe up and down Mount Kato—an exhilarating rush that pushes their limits. The fun ends abruptly when they stray off the trail and find a priest, badly beaten and near death. After calling for help, Allie mysteriously disappears from their lives.
Just like the trash littering the beautiful river bluffs, there’s something foul afoot. Creepy rednecks are prowling the woods, the same ones who ran Sadie and Allie off the road one night. It’s not until the day of the big race that Sadie finally learns the startling truth about Allie, her connection to the priest, and what drove her into hiding.
I really enjoyed the biking element of the story. I’m not a biker by any means and know nothing about the sport, but I felt like I learned a little something while reading the book and it was exciting to read about the races and riding Allie, Sadie, and Joe participated in. I would like to think that reading about exercising would count as actual exercising, but I don’t think that counts…
It was fun to see Joe and Allie’s relationship blossom, especially during the drama and disappearance of Allie. You could watch their attraction grow as you kept reading and I found myself rooting for them to make the next move. I will say it was odd to throw in a “surprise” about Allie at the end, only because it didn’t really add or enhance anything in the story – almost like a random afterthought.
Creepy rednecks…unfortunately something I can relate to. I come from a very small country town, and while we had our “special” residents, I don’t think they were nearly as bad or as creepy as the characters in Chasing Alliecat.
All in all, Chasing AllieCat was a fast and enjoyable read that I think would appeal to all people interested in YA books.
