I simply loooove this book! ever since i first read these series i fell in love with it! I personally don't really like crookedstar either because i get the expression he doesn't care about his father that much and more about his mother,Rainflower. Rainflower is a selfish and dumb mom. His father is such a great cat and he broke up with Rainflower just for Crookedstar. Great read and would recomend this to you all!
