Thank you for stopping at my spot on the Humanizing The Jaguar Book Tour. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Pump Up Your Book.  I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, and bio on Besty  Schows.  Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.



How do you tame the untamable? Bryan Wharton has been through more than any child should bear, leaving him emotionally scarred. When his new family proves to him that love and encouragement do exist, Bryan pursues his only dream. With the friendship and support of a few boys from school, they succeed in making their wild fantasies of becoming rock stars a reality. Through their hard work they rise to fame, while Bryan’s confident, cocky attitude generates animosity within the group. After a particularly grueling ordeal, he meets a young woman who captivates him in ways like no one else ever has. Donna’s ignorance over who he really is and her genuine concern during their fleeting time together allows him to freely open up to her. The two form a bond, becoming oddly entwined. After getting back to what Bryan knows best, he realizes he needs to devise a way for Donna to be near him for what he believes is his own selfishness. Donna was ready for an adventure knowing she’d become the envy of young women worldwide and was hoping that this could lead to more. What does this mean for the two-friendship, love or? As an added bonus this book also includes a game. There are many music clues scattered throughout the text. How many of the hidden clues can you find?

My Review:

I really liked Humanizing the Jaguar, Portrait of a Superstar.  I couldn’t wait to see what happened.  Monica did a good job of describing the events in Bryan’s life.

Bryan Wharton was six years old when his abusive father who had been gone for four months came home. One night after drinking too much Tony his father beat his mother while she was trying to protect Bryan.  Bryan’s mother died. Leaving Bryan alone. He went from one foster care family to another till he met the Porter family.  They raised and adopted him.

Bryan and some school friends became a band called “The Metal Hot Rods”.  They actually became quit successful.  The Humanizing The Jaguar tells of the bands struggles and then Bryan “Jaguar” meets a girl that he likes and wants to be close to.  What happens do they stay together? Is Donna in it only because Bryan is a superstar?  You will need to read Humanizing the Jaguar to find out.  I am sure you will shred a few tears and also cheer for Bryan, but I am sure you will like this book.



I received a Copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for the review, and the review is honest and my responsibility
