Animorphs #12 - The Reaction by K.A. Applegate
Author: K.A. Applegate
Publication Date: November 1997
Length: 152 pages
Warning: This is a review of the 13th book in the series, and may contain spoilers from the earlier books.
The Animorphs find out that an a famous teen actor, Jeremy Jason McCole, is going to endorse The Sharing, the cover organisation for the Yeerks. Since Jeremy is the love of teen girls everywhere, the Animorphs know they have to stop this, or The Sharing will have no problem recruiting a whole lotta teenagers. But as they plot to stop him, Rachel starts having a really weird problem: she's morphing uncontrollably, sometimes from one morph to another without even morphing back to human again.
I liked the whole thing with Rachel's allergic reaction to the crocodile morph. It was one of those story lines that gives you more interesting details about morphing. There were also some pretty awesome fight scenes in this one. Overall, it wasn't a particularly groundbreaking book as far as this series goes, but it was enjoyable.
