In a world where supernatural creatures are not out and proud, this has been a problem for 16 year old Giselle. A child of the system, she's been bounced from home to home for as long as she can remember. As soon as the moon calls out her inner wolf, it's back into the system she goes.
Against the odds, a new family is found for Giselle. One that may prove the answer to all her dreams and wishes. But this family comes with a deadly secret that could send Giselle six feet under instead of back into the system.
Amid factions of warring witches and werewolves, and deadly curses with no hope for a cure, the way will not be an easy one, but if Giselle can call upon her skills as a lone wolf, she may just be able to unearth the truth keeping her from the one thing she's ever wanted... family.

This is a new to me author. I enjoyed the character of Giselle. I found the plot unraveled well. Without giving away spoilers I would only recommend grabbing this story. Appropriate for the YA crowd.
Katie Salidas' "Pretty Little Werewolf" is the first tale in the Little Werewolf series. This is a clean teen paranormal romance. Feels like a werewolf version of Divergent. Has two possible boyfriend choices like Twilight. The mythology is really interesting - werewolves & witches. Can't wait to read #2.
i hope they make another one. iwanted to know about diana and taylor somemore.
I really enjoyed this book! The fact that it dealt with the supernatural is what really captured my attention initially. This is a great story about family and finding your place. I loved the character Giselle because she wasn't some helpless female character who couldn't take care of herself. She was strong, quick witted, and just plain spunky lol which made the book even more enjoyable. I also really liked how the book didn't really center mainly about the fact she was a werewolf. Yes it was an important point but it wasn't the main underlying story. Now the romance!...this book shook things up with two love interests names Asher and Damien. I personally really like Asher because he has this mysterious bad boy vibe on the outside but on the inside he really is caring and sweet. Damien on the other hand is the really sweet guy on the inside and out and who just likes having fun. Can you guess which one she ended up with? This is a really great read for people who really enjoy supernatural reads but also loves a good story about the importance of family and the bond you share with them.
*This review is based on an ARC received prior to release.* My love of the supernatural genre and my familiarity with many of Katie Salidas' previous publications led me to her latest book "Pretty Little Werewolf". Throughout this read, Katie stays focused on an appealing young teenage character, Giselle, a lone lycan continually searching for her place in an unfamiliar world. Her back story and her vulnerability make it easy to both sympathize and root for Giselle as she tries to make the best choices while navigating through a heap of paranornal politics. Katie does a superb job of producing supporting characters that are individualized and (mostly) likeable, with enough unusual behaviors to allow the wiggle-room needed for doubt to reside in both Giselle's mind, as well as the readers'. Overall, I found "Pretty Little Werewolf" to be an enjoyable read about loyalty, bravery, enduring love, family, the power of fear, and, most importantly, self-discovery. There are some twists and turns along Giselle's journey, but Katie doesn't leave the reader in the dark for long on those trips. This book is a great demonstration of Katie's ability to answer many of the "what if's" that make a story worth reading. My only wish is that I could have lingered in Giselle's world a little while longer. The quick wrap-up is convenient, but made me feel like I went from running with Giselle on the inside-track, to an outsider with the Cliff Notes version of how everything worked out in the end. Though I do understand that is typically how an epilogue works, fleshing out more details following the story's climax would have favored better for the reader, but only in my opinion. I still truly enjoyed the book, and I'd recommend getting a copy and taking it for a spin yourself.
