Shelby’s summer plans go totally awry when her horrible stepmother sends her off to “brat camp” as punishment for one too many broken curfews. Camp is full of spoiled rich kids, obnoxious counselors wanting Shelby to talk about her feelings, and a totally inhumane “no cell phones” policy.
Things start looking up, though, when Shelby meets fellow camper (and son of a rock star) Austin Bridges III. But soon she realizes there’s more to Austin than crush material—his family has a dark secret, and he wants Shelby’s help guarding it. Shelby knows that bad boys get her into trouble…but who is she to turn her back on a guy in need, especially such a good-looking one?
Heather Davis’s debut novel mixes together irresistible characters, a pesky full moon, and a delicious taste of the supernatural.
NEVER CRY WEREWOLF is a short, face-paced read that any werewolf fan will devour!
I was a little late when it came to recognising this book. It's been out since last year and I just heard about it a couple months ago! I'm seriously beginning to think I live under a rock...
The cover is what got me to really want to read it. It's gorgeous and the I love how the girl is sporting a red hooded jacket. Little Red Riding Hood much?
NEVER CRY WEREWOLF is about a girl named Shelby who is sent to "brat camp" by her father and 'evil' step-mother. I really like the new setting the book brought. Very different and original than most books i've read. I can honestly say I've never read a book with a "brat camp" involved. I kinda enjoyed how it was simple. Yes, it has werewolves, but it didn't focus on the whole good and evil aspect like many other YA books do.
I didn't like the book as much as I thought I would but it was still an enjoyable read. I really liked Shelby. She was a sarcastic and witty character. I wish we would have seen more of her best friend Ariel though. Other than that, most of the characters were a little flat to me.
The story didn't dwell too much on Shelby and Austin's romance so that's what kind of made me give it 3 flowers.
Overall, NEVER CRY WEREWOLF is a good debut novel that will satisfy readers who are looking for a simple and quick read.
