I was very disappointed in this book. The writing style was choppy, and the main characters (the Weregirls) show no sense of responsibility towards the powers that they have. Poorly written and boring.
*sigh* Another day, another one star rating. This book was frustrating! None of the characters - teens or adults in this book come across as believable or well written to me. Worse, the main character is VERY immature, annoying and self absorbed - to the point that she makes the offensive comment that child sweatshop workers in Bangladesh are lucky because by stitching her clothes, they get to see 'high end fashion', which they otherwise wouldn't get to see. It just shows how ignorant and insens ...more

Lily and her friends start up a club soccer team, calling themselves the Weregirls after stories Lily's now deceased father told them.

What they don't realize is that the stories he was spinning were more than just tall tales. Lily and her friends have an ancient magic hidden inside of them and it's starting to show.

Unfortunately for them, a new girl, Andra, moves into town with her heart set on a varsity team. Andra's moneyed background makes her
The book was not original in some cases and in other cases it was orginal. I really don't know. It was an okay book

Weregirls Birth of the Pack started out very slow in my opinion the story started to pick up pace around chapter five or six. After that the story was more enjoyable. Lily is an awesome character who I think is very misunderstood. Despite the fact that her dad is magical her family life was very real-- kind of what I'd expect the life of two people, one magical and one who's not, to be like when the other doesn't understand or refuses to understand their life.

Wasn't bad, wasn't great thought either. Weak plot, likable enough characters, but a shaky beginning. Needed more details, and the lack of a sequel means that the characters and plots are never to be fully developed. Overall: girls shift forms, play soccer. Non-realistic representation of high school kids, but an entertaining read. Good plot to an extent, though poorly executed. Get from your library, don't waste the money.
Cliche and written as if, like, a high school student was like talking (sort of like that). Interesting plot, but not spectacular. Not great, but not worth buying. Get it from a library. Grades 7-9 might like this book better though.
This book is AWESOME!!!! It starts off kind of slow, but it gets really good. I felt angry just like Lily every time Andra got away with something. Definitely a book worth reading.
this is a really good book. At first when i saw the cover it didn't really look very interesting book when i read it, it was amazing story you should read it
It was an ok read but I think the title presents itself as y/a werewolf tale and it isn't. More of an urban fantasy read.
One of my favorite favorite books! It has lots of action some romance and the girls love playing my favorite sport... SOCCER!!!:)

the 1st half is realistic fiction. this is a chick flick book, just fun, and they dont exactly turn into werewolves.
