    Fabulous Book!

    This is an excellent book, highly original and fascinating reading. It's the story of a boy named Zach who grows up in a family of werewolves, but can't bring himself to accept that kind of life for himself. He runs away from home in desperation, setting out on a journey from Tennessee to Texas to try to find his uncle Justin, the only relative he has who isn't a werewolf.

    He survives by raking leaves and sleeping in bus stations and under bridges until he reaches Texas. There he eventually finds his uncle, but along the way he also discovers a lot about what it means to choose to do right, and how high the cost of virtue can really be sometimes.

    The book is told in first-person from Zach's point of view, in a simple and poignant style that can bring the reader almost to tears at times. But in spite of that, the story can also be very funny at times. Watching Zach keep his sense of humor and his courage even in the face of some very harsh and cruel circumstances he has to face is very inspiring.

    More than anything, this is a book about the love and grace of God to a boy who was lost in a very dark place, and of his journey to light and love as he finds his way to Christ. The ending is both happy and satisfying.

    The story is clean, and a good read for anyone from about the age of 12 and up. . . even for adults. There's one brief scene on page 3 that involved Zach's grandmother killing a rabbit which rather startled me, but it's the only one of its kind and after I finished the book I understood why it was there.

    All in all, I highly recommend this book to any lover of inspirational fantasy. You will not be disappointed!

    inspirational

    This is one of the best books I've ever read. I think readers of all ages will love this inspirational tale. I was hooked from the start. On the surface it is a humourous adventure and yet if you look deeper it is a story about life and searching for something more. Twelve year-old Zach comes from a family of loup garous (werewolves). He has now reached the age where he is ready to be initiated and become a 'monster' as he puts it. His family have already set the wheels in motion to turn him into a fully fledged loup garou. This is when Zach makes his escape fleeing from the family home under some pressure to avoid being there for the next full moon when he will be expected to make his first kill.
    The story is written in the first person from Zach's viewpoint, in a loose style reminiscent of JD Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye'.
    It is the story of Zach's quest to find his uncle Justin who is one of the only members of his family who is not a werewolf. He has never met his uncle before and doesn't even know where he lives. He sets out on a search from Tennessee to Texas, living rough and getting by on the little money he can make along the way. It's a fun read and contains some inspirational writing. In his search for his uncle, Zach finds more than he set out to find. On a deeper level the book is also about turning from the dark and finding God. It is also a story about the choices that we have to make in life, and how difficult those choices can be.

    Great book

    This book is so good you don't want it to end. I liked it because the story happened in texas which is where I live and I knew a lot of the places it was talking about. I also never saw anybody use the word "dadgummed" in a book before and that's such a texas word. I think I liked this book so much because it always made me laugh at the weirdest times when I wasn't expecting it. But then again, it was serious sometimes and left me with a lot to think about. There are not too many books where you can't decide whether to laugh or cry or both while you read it, but this is one of them.

    I liked it that the author wasn't afraid to mention Jesus, but the book never sounded like something he wrote to convert anybody. It was just an important part of Zach's life. I loved this book and read it all in one sitting.

    I think it would be a good story for almost any age. I think it's geared for young adults but I think anybody would enjoy it.
