Gr 8 Up-After getting bitten by an alpha werewolf, Scott McCall just tries to act normal while coping with animal instincts and strange dreams and urges. That means playing lacrosse, hanging with his quirky best friend, Stiles, and getting closer to his love, Allison Argent. But the Argents have a history of hunting werewolves and are bent on destroying the werewolf threat in Beacon Hills. When school friend Jackson Whittemore goes missing, all hell seems to break loose, leaving Scott, Allison, Stiles, and werewolf friend Derek to uncover the truth of his disappearance. Holder weaves an original story based on MTV's hit series Teen Wolf that delves deeper into the characters' lives, giving insight into relationships, emotions, and family secrets. Much is revealed through flashbacks, and readers can't help but identify with Scott's journey to discover who and what he is. A fast-paced, suspenseful read that will satisfy fans of the show.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY (c) Copyright 2013.
