I received a copy of Six Moon Summer by SM Reine when I won a Twitter contest (I correctly guessed Sara's new hair color. We need more contests like that). It took me awhile to get around to reading it, and in a way, I'm glad. I'll explain why later.
Brief Summary: Rylie is a teenager, her parents are getting a divorce, and she's been shipped off to camp hours away from home. Needless to say, her summer did not start well. When she flees camp trying to avoid some nasty girls, she runs afoul of something much worse--a werewolf. She's bitten and now her future is uncertain. Every new and full moon, her transformation increases, until on the sixth moon, she becomes a full werewolf. Rylie is desperate to find a cure before it is too late and enlists the help of a very cute boy named Seth, who holds a secret of his own.
Why You Should Read It: Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. It flowed really well, the characters were engaging and easy to relate to, and, let's be honest, who doesn't love werewolves mixed with some teenage angst? Reine does an excellent job bringing the story to life and giving the characters depth. Rylie's struggles with her wolfish nature parallel the struggles many teens (and adults) go through trying to find their place in the world. So why am I glad I didn't read this book before now when I loved it so much? The second book, All Hallows' Moon, is coming out on September 9th. You can bet your booty I'll be getting it the moment I'm near a computer or Kindle. You still have a few days to grab Six Moon Summer before the release! I promise you won't regret it.
