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.
A decent start to a YA Urban Fantasy series. I’d recommend ‘Weregirl’ to fans of ‘The Mortal Instruments’, ‘Twilight’ and suchlike.
The main criticism I would have is that several characters could have been better developed, which would have made for more satisfying plot developments in the third act, and the conclusion would have also been much more impactful. But overall it was well written, a fun read, and I enjoyed the themes that were explored throughout.
