If you are considering this for your first Deb Caletti book, I just want to encourage you to avoid it until you know what a great author she really is. My recommendation is to read "Stay" first. I'm not saying The Nature of Jade isn't a good book, because it was, but the first half of it is so uneventful you start to wonder if the whole book is just going to be you, the reader, being spoonfed Jade's thoughts. Her mind works in an interesting way, and she's a great character with her own little quirks and everything, but it just feels like you're waiting for something to HAPPEN. The comparisons she draws between animals and humans are fresh and deep, and it's one of the only reasons I didn't put this book down after the first 50 pages passed and she still hadn't met the boy in the red jacket.

But alas, she does meet the boy in the red jacket. Things start to pick up, and eventually you (well, I) end up reading through it so easily you barely remember how long it took to get going. While I didn't particularly care about, or even LIKE, most of the supporting characters, like Jade's friends and parents, Sebastian, Bo and Tess are enough to make you fall in love with this book. You understand Jade's connection with them, her love for their family, and why she'd be willing to take risks for them that her anxiety has kept her from even considering before. Jade and Sebastian are what each other needs: Jade, someone who can see past Sebastian's personal dramas to accept him because of his heart and his little family; and Sebastian, someone who brings lightness to Jade's life and makes her forget about her illness. They see in each other something that most people couldn't-- that they are not their circumstances. In addition to their relationship being so genuine and lighthearted in spite of everything, Jade herself is a very real character. Deb Caletti has written Jade's thoughts in a way that made me think, "I totally know what she's talking about!" Some of the things Jade thinks about, I have noticed before or would describe the exact same way. And I'm nothing like her, apart from the bits of cynicism.

The whole time, Jade makes these comparisons with the elephants she works with, and the lines between human and animal are blurred. Jade's parents sometimes act more like animals than the elephants, and the elephants act more like humans. I will admit I was thrown off sometimes by the long tangents about the animals, and sometimes I was tempted to skim over the parts where Jade was with her friends or her family, because they just seemed so insignificant. It does all come together though.

This is one of those books that are hard to define in terms of demographic. I have no idea what group of people to recommend it to, but I do recommend it. I guess if you don't get easily distracted, or have a tendency to give up on books if they don't pick up right away, or have some kind of aversion to romance. 3.5/5

It was a cute story but I feel like the portrayal of anxiety was completely wrong. At first it was great but then it went south from there and seemed to be she got into a relationship and her whole life is better now! No more anxiety!
Which annoyed me and distracted me from fully enjoying the story.

My daughter chose this book for her out-of-classroom assigned reading, mainly because she suffers from panic attacks. I read it in a few sittings (she has until the end of the month to finish it) and I found it very realistic and honest. I hope my daughter will like it as much as I did!

This book is the best book I've ever read in my life. Whenever Jade would see Sebastian my heart would literally leap. This book helped me though bad times or even when I am angry. When I finished this book I cried so hard not knowing what I would read next. If I didn't get The Six Rules Of Maybe suggested from my Reading teacher I wouldn't of gotten into more of her books. So happy that I listened to her. Thank You so much Mrs.England.

Great books for an excellent price for summer reading. It is your typical book for teens that are required to do summer reading.

I have read all of Deb Caletti's other books and have to say this isn't her best. However, The Nature of Jade is still a very nice read. The boy is a little different than most teen books, which adds interest. Personally, I loved where the book is set, Woodland Park Zoo. The relation to the animals is intriquing and thought provoking. I would definatley recomend the book. If you have read Caletti's other books, yu will still love this one.
Wild Python
Well... this book is wonderful. The story is perfect. Caletti created the perfect characters for this story. The only thing keeping this book from receiving five stars would the the grammar. The book is filled with fragments and run-ons. For some people this make not be problem, but for me it was.
This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. So meaningful and has the sweetest love story in it! Made me cry happy tears at the end! :)
