In Sheep’s Clothing: The Healer

Kevin C. Hensley

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Kevin Hensley offers a very different take on the dystopian genre with In Sheep’s Clothing: The Healer.  The all-controlling Chugg Corporation, run by pigs, doesn’t like it when a sheep steps out of line.  But when sheep Snapper discovers he has healing powers, and that he must protect two mystical beings, he finds himself targeted by the Chugg Corporation.  I loved Hensley’s world and the way this book reminded me of The Giver and Animal Farm at the same time.  If you love imaginative dystopian fiction, this one’s for you!

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

E.
