Curtis Klause’s novel is a coming-of-age book set in the world of werewolves— with forbidden love, painful decisions, jealousy and crime. As in any other world, it proves difficult for growing kids to find their identity, and in this case, the unusual setting adds to the pleasure of reading about it.
