Terrier (The Legend of Beka Cooper, Book 1) by Tamora Pierce

This book was a quick and enjoyable read for me. The setting reminded me of
Ankh-Moorpark, a slum full of "colorful" characters on both sides of the law, occasionally at the same time. The teenaged heroine is feisty and capable, if a bit too perfect at times. The supporting characters are well done and interesting in their own right.

It's written in a journal format. But most of the book reads like a regular first person narrative, with a more diary like entry thrown in here and there.

I liked it well enough to continue on with the series.

Rating: 3/5 stars
