Eager to escape her small hometown, high school junior Nessa Kurland is focused on winning a college scholarship for cross-country running. A chance encounter with a trapped wolf while out on a run leads to powerful and frightening changes, and one day, Nessa is transformed into a full werewolf. Now Nessa must navigate the challenges of high school while coming face to face with true human darkness, as she tries to make peace with her new wild nature.
Weregirl by C.D. Bell
Nessa was determined to get out of her small town and a cross-country running scholarship was her only hope. It was just Nessa, her mom, her sister and her autistic brother, so every chance she got, she ran and ran, until the night she ran straight into trouble, of the wolfish variety. Her thanks for rescuing a trapped wolf was a bite that would make traversing the trials and tribulations of high school seem like a walk in the park.
WEREGIRL by C.D. Bell is a wonderful young adult fantasy with a main character and her quirky best friend who never seem caught up in the teen angst that saturates so many YA tales! Toss in some strange events, a dark corporate presence that seems to be the root of all evil in her small town, and this tale had some “meat” to it! I mean, who doesn’t love the mysterious big bad wolf masquerading as the helpful service dog for an unsuspecting town?
All in all, a fun read that “ran” along at a great pace with many unexpected little subplots along the way, including a simple bow to young romantic potential.
