BWB Review: Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis

Title: Never Cry Werewolf
By: Heather Davis
Reading Level: Young Adult
Bookwhisperer Rating: 3 Stars

Author Description: Okay, so maybe Shelby has made a few mistakes with boys lately (how was she supposed to know Wes had “borrowed” that Porsche?). But her step-mother totally overreacts when she catches Shelby in a post-curfew kiss with a hot senior. Suddenly Shelby’s summer plans are on the shelf, and she’s being packed off to brat camp. It’s good-bye, prom dress; hello, hiking boots.

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 she really shouldn’t be getting tangled up with another bad boy…but who is she to turn her back on a guy in need, especially such a good looking one? One thing’s for sure, that pesky full moon is about to get her into trouble all over again.

My initial surprise about Never Cry Werewolf came at the bookstore, when I picked it up and realized it had a little over 200 pages. Needless to say I finished this book quick, fast, and in hurry. Books with less pages mean that the story has to have a quicker pace, and usually means that the author has cut corners in places such as character building and plot growth. This being said, I was aware before page 1 that this book would have some disadvantages. Regardless in the end, I still enjoyed this book. I think that with the disadvantages that I addressed the author presented a very entertaining read, that is perfect for the age group which was intended. While I probably would not read this book again, I would say that it recommendable for a quick and easy read.
