Six Moon Summer by S. M. Reine

Six Moon Summer (Seasons of the Moon, #1)
Author Summary:
Rylie's been bitten.

She's changing.

And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf... forever.

Rylie's parents force her to attend summer camp, but she's just as miserable at the girls' camp as she was at home-- there's nothing vegetarian for her to eat at the mess hall, she hates hiking and archery, and the other campers taunt Rylie mercilessly.  One night, the bullying goes too far, and Rylie runs away.  She doesn't get far.  It's a full moon, and she isn't alone in the forest...

She wakes up unharmed in her cabin the next morning with no memory of what happened.  The only sign something has changed are the healed scars on her chest, her increasingly keen senses, and her sudden craving for raw, bloody meat.

A boy from the other camp seems to know what's happening to her, but Rylie isn't sure if she can trust herself with Seth. He's way too cute and he knows way too much.

Rylie soon learns that she only has until the end of summer before she becomes just like the monster that attacked her: a man-eating werewolf hungry for human flesh.  Unless she can find a cure, she's going to transforming at the end of the summer and lose her life to the hunger.


My Take:
You have got to be freakin' kidding me! What a tease!

This book was really good and I would really suggest this book to anyone that likes a good werewolf book. There is an ending to this book, but, it is very abrupt.  It left me screaming, "Why does it have to end here!?!?"

S.M. Reine is a fantastic writer. The description of a werewolf change is better than I have EVER read. I could vividly see, smell and taste every bit of the change that Rylie had to go through on each of the six moons.  The story flowed very nicely and kept me entertained.

Throughout the summer poor Rilie endured heartbreak from her parent’s divorce, getting bullied, a tragic loss, a horrific attack AND the curse of becoming a werewolf.  To make it easier on her, there is a hot boy that she sneaks off to see as often as she can.  What a summer!  OK...I'm dying to say it; the bully gets what's coming to her later in the book.  Dang I'm evil!

One cliché I found quite interesting, is that she is an avid vegetarian. The thought of harming an animal is horrific to her. It's a serious problem when you have a wolf stirring inside of you and he’s hungry!  And to limit the wolf with tofu?  Not very smart.

This is a really, quick easy read, so check it out!  I am really excited to see where this story will lead!
