A "clean" paranormal YA
There were many plot points that weren't easily followed or that left me confused for a time. I'd like to say that it's because this is book 4 in a series and simply not a stand-alone book. I think that is true in most of the places I had problems.
This is definitely a "clean" YA book. By that I mean that a young teenage girl ends up living alone in the forest with a boy who becomes her "boyfriend". Yet there is little touching or kissing and absolutely no mention of any other bodily functions. In spite of being werewolves and the girl not even being able to control her phasing, they somehow retain their sense of modesty and are able to hide from each other while shifting and devise ways to carry clothes with them almost all the time. If you are concerned about your child's reading material, then this is a great book for them, and a refreshing change from most of the other YA books in this genre. However, as an adult, it stretched my credibility.
It tries to be an inspiring story of love and hope and family and friends in the face of danger and uncertainty. And yes everything works out okay in the end. I understood the message, but sometimes felt that the shifts in mood (from danger to freedom for example) were too quick and not well explained.
Overall, I'd say it's a good paranormal book for YA readers, especially those on the younger side. But start at the first book in the series and read in order. Not recommended for adults.
The narrator was great. Her voice fit a young girl's voice perfectly, yet she still managed to do characterization of the other characters, most of whom were older males.

I dread getting to the end of the series!
I just don't want it to end it's like thinking about your favorite TV show. then hearings there's only a few episodes left!(albeit this is technically 4 of 14) I already red the second half of the series by accident so its all over for me when I get to 7. checkout the "werewolf academy" for the 'book 8'. But man this story is just so addicting & amazing. The depth, detail of the story illuminate it all in your mind clearly. The charisma of the characters, their kindness & compassion don't make them push overs but rather make me think about how I can be a better person. I must say the stories have been moving, realistic, wholesome. Not to mention the comedy that blinsides you at times that makes it all the more funny because ya that character just GOT YOU GOOD TOO! Hahaha. Thanks for the awesome tales! Or should that be tails? `^u^` 🐺
