Synopsis
Torn between two destinies? Claire is having the perfect sixteenth birthday. Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she's the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all sense of normalcy: she's a werewolf.
As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire's new life threatens her blossoming romance with Matthew, whose father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice that will change her forever?.

My Review

   Recently finding out you are a werewolf and trying to maintain a normal teen life isn't going to be easy for Claire. During her birthday pool party Claire finds out Matt has a crush on her. They hit it off so great you can really feel the pull between them. There is one problem and that's Matt's father. He is out to prove his life long research, his "cure" for werewolves works. Through the entire book you keep asking yourself is it a good idea to tell Matt that Claire is a werewolf? You could feel how awkward Claire felt in her human skin and then having to deal with transformation into a wolf isn't as easy as it seems. The plot was original which we all know is hard to come by. I felt a sense of feminine pride while reading this. I think this is a great read especially for teen girls. I zipped right through the book. The end of the book took a great twist. One that really made you wish and pray for a sequel. I enjoyed the characters especially Claire's best friend. It was just all around an enjoyable book.

Nice review! I figured from the title we were dealing with werewolves in some fashion. Interesting to see the lead character werewolf is a female...
Thanks for sharing this interesting read!
