The first thing that the reader notices about this book is the cover. The cover image sparks immediate interest and one of the main reasons that I chose it. I find the cover of Weregirl mesmerizing.
This is the first book I'm reading by CD Bell and I found that the writing to be very good. Weregirl is interesting and pulls the reader in. Nessa wants out of her small town and if she can accomplish this by winning a college scholarship for cross country, then she is going to put all she has into it. So, as the reader off you go with this character as she runs her way to college or maybe that would have been in her future if she hadn't stopped to help a trapped wolf, then was attacked by another wolf, then started to sprout little white dog hairs all over, then got perfect vision, then got bionic hearing and was freaking out every animal she comes across. Though its a good story I feel that as the reader I didn't get to know the leader character too much. The secondary characters are virtually unknown as well.
I like Weregirl because it captured my interest and I want to know what's really going on. I need to know what's so special about the heroine? Would like to know what's going with a couple of the other kids at her school? Did one of them bite her? Is there a love interest or is she going to be a superhero ass-kicker? What about the environmental issues? Do they play a part in this or any of the other research stuff?
Definite cliffhanger. Wasn't expecting the book to end when it did but I am looking forward to see where the author takes the story.
