"Filled with sarcasm and humor, this book will appeal to all teens . . . Teachers will love the high-level vocabulary (and content clues), sophisticated mathematical and scientific references, and non-stop allusions to writers, poets, books, and historical events." -- VOYA "Johnson's debut novel is original and thought-provoking." -- School Library Journal
"A shameful fact about humanity is that some people can be so ugly that no one will be friends with them. It is shameful that humans can be so cruel, and it is shameful that humans can be so ugly." So begins the incredible story of Myron Horowitz, a disfigured thirteen-year-old just trying to fit in at his Pennsylvania school. When a fight with a bully leaves him unconscious and naked in the wreckage of the cafeteria, Myron discovers that he is an immortal lycanthrope -- a were-mammal who can transform from human to animal. He also discovers that there are others like him, and many of them want Myron dead. "People will turn into animals," says the razor-witted narrator of this tour-de-force, "and here come ancient secrets and rivers of blood."

A good story that moves along at a nice clip. It was fun and nice to meet the characters, but glad that this is a stand alone. Really fun, ending is a little abrupt.
