I may be biased, because I know the author, but I think this book is pretty great. The best thing about it is the characters, hands down. Let's take a look at them, shall we?

Shella, our main character/narrator, is--in one word--a bitch. But the great thing about her is she's very aware of this. She knows she's a bitch and she readily admits it to anyone who asks. Shella has been through a lot, and it's taken its toll on her. She believes she's evil, and it will take a lot to convince her otherwi

Shelves: werewolves
3.5 stars. I enjoyed this one. While I liked Shella for the most part, there was times I hated her and wanted to give her a slap. I felt really bad for Tran and the way Shella treated him. I was kept intrigued throughout guessing what was going on with Tran but I pretty much figured out straight away who Amie's dad was.

I was disappointed in the ending, as I would have liked to have seen more of what happened between Tran and Shella.
