Synopsis:" Nessa Kurland is running for her life.
C. D. Bell's WEREGIRL is a fast-paced teen thriller set in Tether, Michigan, a town on the brink of shutdown since it was stripped of its resources by corporate polluter Dutch Chemical.
High school junior, Nessa Kurland, is a cross-country runner with her eyes set on one thing: a college scholarship as her one-way ticket out of Tether.
Talented teammate Cynthia Sinise invites Nessa on a nighttime run through Tether overgrown forest trails. But she speeds ahead, leaving Nessa alone to discover a trapped wolf. Nessa tries to free the animal but is badly bitten, seemingly ruining her hopes for a strong fall season with the cross-country team.
Instead, Nessa freakishly quick recovery is followed by improved running times. All her senses are heightened. Nessa has transformed. She has become a werewolf.
In her new state, Nessa learns there are things about Tether that powerful people want to keep hidden. Why does a Nobel Laureate work at the small-town medical clinic? Are top college athletic scouts really interested in her emerging talent? Can she trust Chayton, the motorcycle-riding guide her friends have faith in? Nessa must navigate her junior year and true human darkness, while making peace with her new, wild nature."
I was so excited to receive a copy of this book for review, because I was in a mood for a werewolf book. I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but werewolves and boy was I blown away with this book. From the very first page you get sucked into this world and you can't put it down. The only thing that was a little turn off was there were parts that seem to drag, but other than that it was great.
I really enjoyed the main character Nessa she honestly had some great character development. Also I was really glad that the main problem of the book wasn't the whole focus. A lot of the subplots fit very nicely into the book and didn't seem out of place. All of the characters weren't random though I do feel that some of the sub characters could have been part of the story more. One of these characters is Chayton. He was amazing character, but he was just there same with Luc.
C.D Bell's writing blew me away. I didn't know what to expect by the author's style most of the time for me it's hit or miss and this was a big hit. It fit the plot nice. I enjoyed the fact that it incredible balance between detail and dialogue. I personally don't think the book needs another book it ended very nicely. Though I would read the next book. Overall this is a five star book and I would highly recommend it.

Bell writing in a decrepit RV clinging to the side of a hill in upstate New York, trying to teach herself to watercolor, or inventing her own recipes. She is a voracious reader of anything and everything fantasy, supernatural, or romance. And she swears that the monsters she often writes about are not real-- at least she hopes not.
