I don’t even have time to process what he said before the table he’s sitting behind flies to the side and he lunges forward.

When Avery's parents drag her across the country just to congratulate someone, she knows something is up. When her parents then bring her to a strangers home in the middle of the woods, she can't help feeling like something is wrong. And when a man suddenly turns into a werewolf right in front of her eyes, Avery is sure that there was something her parents have been leaving out for the past nineteen years.
