Six Moon Summer Review

Six Moon Summer


SM Reine


   Rylie's parents are going through a messy divorce. They send her to summer camp to get her out of the way of their fighting lawyers, but she's just as miserable at the girls' camp as she was at home-- there's nothing vegetarian for her to eat at the mess hall, she hates hiking and archery, and the other campers taunt Rylie mercilessly.

   One night, the bullying goes too far, and Rylie runs away. She doesn't get far. It's a full moon, and she isn't alone in the forest. A wild animal mauls her. She's certain she won't survive.

   Instead of dying, she wakes up unharmed in her cabin the next morning. The only sign that something has changed are the healed scars on her chest, her increasingly keen senses, and her sudden craving for raw, bloody meat. A boy from the other camp seems to know what's happening to her, but Rylie isn't sure if she can trust herself with Seth.

   Rylie soon learns that she only has until the end of summer before she becomes just like the monster that attacked her: a man-eating werewolf hungry for human flesh. Unless she can find a cure, she's only six moons away from transforming forever and losing her life to the hunger...


   Six Moon Summer had me from the very beginning.

   Riley is a girl who gets shipped off to camp for the summer to save her from the trauma of a messy divorce between her parents.

   She immediately finds that she doesn't fit in with the rest of the campers and after a brutal night of dealing with her peers, she takes off.

   Something terrible happens, but she has no recollection of what. Strange things start to happen to her that she can't explain, at least until a sexy boy comes to her rescue.

   I loved that the werewolf in this story was actually the heroine. It was refreshing to see a girl in this kind of a roll for a change.

   The story was exciting and fun to read. I would love to see what happens with Riley and Seth in the future.

I give it 5 Stars
