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

Ugh. I don't usually say this, but I hated this book. The plot was completely random and none of the characters were likeable in any way, shape, or form. A basic summary: Girl is obsessed with soccer. New girl comes to town and breaks up first girl's soccer team. First girl hates new girl. New girl accuses first girl of having magic powers. First girl does not think this strange in the slightest. Then, for no apparent reason, first girl and all her friends get magic powers and have to go defeat ...more

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.

1.5 stars. It had it's moments, and I tried really hard to like it, but I just couldn't. The main character is so unlikable. All she does is whine and complain and just be genuinely obnoxious. Her three friends were little better than wallpaper. They didn't have any defining traits or characteristics to tell them apart; they were just there. The writing style also read like fanfiction. Decent fanfiction, mind you, but fanfiction nonetheless, which made the whole book seem very immature and hard ...more

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.

I usually don't have anything bad to say about a book but this one, I couldn't read it. I had it for three weeks and I couldn't get past the second chapter. I'm not saying it wasn't a good book for someone else, it just didn't interest me.

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.

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.

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.

It shows that there is always evil and good. In fantasy and in reality, they both equally exist!

This is a very good but different kind of book
I guess it was okay. It was a good book in general, but I didn't like the writing style.
I don't have much to say because I read this book a LONG time ago...
Very good for a start of a series.
