Wildgirl is out for a bit of fun and something to distract her from a really bad day at school. But when she meets Wolfboy at a club in Shyness … will she get more than she bargained for?? This is an enticing story about 2 young people who spend a night seeking adventure … and find out more about themselves than perhaps they were expecting. The story may have a slightly supernatural feel about it but this is less in the vein of the Twilight series and more like an allegory. Does Wolfboy howl because he has werewolf leanings or because he is a young man who doesn’t know how to deal with the grief of losing a loved one? Readers will be engrossed in the story and come to feel great empathy for the 2 lead characters. A great novel by a first time author. Check out her website.
