'I watch his slow gaze travel over all of us until it settles on me.  I also watch as his pupils dilate and his lips pull back, exposing his teeth as he growls out “Mine!”  
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.  Jamie pushes me to the side and Dad catches me before I can fall to the ground.  Another growl rips out of the man’s chest before something happens that I’m sure I imagined.  Before my eyes, I watch as the man morphs into an animal.  A wolf.'

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.  

She grew up assuming werewolves were fake, made real only in stories and folktales.  Now she knows better, but will she be able to accept her new reality?

Hahaha I just wanna say I love this book I have read it like 5 times you did an amazing job
What is he a skunk black with a white stripes down his spine? That sounds like a skunk to me.
That's actually me with the river part. I probably would have been like hey what about that ocean or lake when in reality it's a pond.
Avery probably thinks Clem belongs in a crazy hospital. While Clem's just trying to say that she knows that Avery's a werewolf. And that the scent she has smells good.

                              Our relationship is practically nonexistent.
True. What are you doing in Astoria when Portland is so close?
