"Love is a werewolf, influenced by the moon and terror, and always about to change."

Liv has a secret.

Something happened to her when she was thirteen. Something that changed everything. Liv knows she doesn't belong anymore--not in her own skin, not in her family . . . not anywhere. The only time she truly feels like herself is when she's with her boyfriend, Corey, and in the woods that surround her town.


My Review: Liv is a girl with a hidden secret, she is a wearwolf. In the beginning she is just a normal girl until one day her mother brougth home a wolf she had just killed. Seeing this angered Liv and she ran into the woods and began to change. Her mother thinks somethings wrong and has her see a doctor about her outbursts. While hiding her secret she is trying to balance her boys and her volenteering. Liv is dating Corey in secret, no one can know because Corey is dark skin. Pace is Liv's friend who is gay and pretends to be Liv's boyfriend and covers for her whenever she needs it. The story goes on and Liv meets the people who live in the cabin in the middle of the woods. She is told they are like her and send her on a mission. The mission is to kill her own mother, but Liv just cant do that. Close to the end the story takes some unexpted turns. Pace has killed himself. He died the same way Michael had, but was he ever real? Liv finds a tombstone with Michael's name onit and wonders if Pace was just inlove with a ghost of is his Michael was diffrent from the dead one. The end of the book is where Liv finds out her real father, and Corey takes her away, just the two of them. Leaving everyone else behind.
