The Perils of Growing Up Werewolf by Andrew Buckley
I would first like to thank Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours for including me in this blog tour and providing me with a review copy for an honest review, as well as Month9Books for contacting me about reviewing this novel! The first installment of this series, Hair in All the Wrong Places, is a great read that is quick-paced and will have you turning the pages as you follow along the story of a teenage werewolf and the complications that he has to live with in his daily life. I really enjoyed how much character development that Colin went through throughout this book, and I liked how the author involved Becca, Jeremy, and Colin's other friends into his story in Elkwood. This is such a fantastic read if you are looking for something fun and quick, while still having an interesting plot line and characters that are all unique in their own ways. Towards the end of the book, I liked the predicament that Colin was in, as well as Becca, was resolved, and that the fact that their feelings for each other were never put on the line when Colin was in trouble or when he was off fighting some unknown source of evil at that time. I also really liked how the introduction of Colin's new principle was written out - the results were unexpected and truly had me interested in his character development throughout the story. The story picked up right as the first novel ended, and the author did a very good job of staying consistent with details from the first novel as well as adding in new details that allowed the second installment to add onto Colin's story. I highly recommend this series to fans of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan.

Publisher: Tantrum Books
Being a werewolf is no picnic. Colin’s constantly hungry, spends a ton of time shaving, and fights to keep his emotions in check to avoid turning into a giant, drooling, hairy, smelly, howling wolf. But Colin's not the only creature hanging around the town of Elkwood. Vampires, zombies, goblins, ogres, and other questionable visitors and their various shenanigans have got everyone on edge.
Colin just wants to live a normal life, date, and get his homework done on time. But the town of Elkwood needs him. So when a secret government organization asks for his help, will he be able to control the animal inside, or will he give in to the perils of growing up werewolf?
