Publisher's Summary

Teen Vogue's Top YA Book Pick for November 2016
The new best-selling novel from C. D. Bell will get your heart racing and blood pumping as you fall in love with Nessa Kurland. Part werewolf romance, part teen thriller, Weregirl tells one girl's story of growth in the face of danger, rivalry, transformation, and love. A beautiful meditation on coming of age, told through a fantasy lens.
Nessa Kurland is running for her life.
High school junior Nessa Kurland is a cross-country runner with her eyes set on one thing: a college scholarship as her one-way ticket out of Tether, Michigan, a town on the brink of shutdown since it was devastated by corporate polluter Dutch Chemical.
Talented teammate Cynthia invites Nessa on a nighttime run through Tether's overgrown forest trails. But she speeds ahead, leaving Nessa alone to discover a trapped wolf. Nessa tries to free the animal but is badly bitten, seemingly ruining her hopes for a strong fall season.
Instead, Nessa's freakishly quick recovery is followed by improved running times. All her senses are heightened. Nessa has transformed.
She has become a werewolf.
In her new state, Nessa learns that Tether has many secrets. What is really going on at the small-town clinic? Can she decipher what the wolf pack she's been running with is trying to tell her? Nessa must navigate true human darkness and the uncertainty of young love, all while making peace with her new, wild nature.

What the Critics Say

"Weregirl is not a love story as Twilight was - nor does it fall victim to the dreaded love triangle that many other YA novels make the focal point. Ultimately, Nessa feels like a real girl, with all of the flaws, desires, and confusing feelings that real girls her age have." (Revelist)

Main Character is Dim-witted

The main character in the story is completely dim witted. She fails to realise things that are completely obvious from the get go, perhaps the author left too many plot clues. The main character falls into such obvious traps that is cringe worthy to listen to.

It honestly feels like the author is trying to stick to the usually successful formula to sell books to teens: a female character who has some kind of supernatural encounter/is somehow special who has a love triangle and a happy ending.

In fact, the only good things about this book were the action scenes and the wolf scenes.

The performance of the audiobook was easy to follow and engaging.

In conclusion, although the performance is good, the plot is weak and the main character is hard to like due to her obliviousness. I would not recommend this audiobook to anyone.

Very slow start. Took me a good 3 hours to get into it but by the end of it I wanted more! If wasn't for the narration I would of probably stopped reading. so glad I hadn't stopped.
