    Pretty Good

    This book was pretty good, kept my interest just fine. It wasn't a scintillating read, at least not to me, but it passed the time nicely between major books. Rating of about 3.5-4.0. (I can't decide)

    Probably more 3.5 *'s. Rylie is the odd one out at camp. She can't
    seem to fit in and actually she really doesn't want to. At times this
    book seemed a little bit out of its age group. This doesn't take away
    from the book, but just an observation. Enter Seth, a mysterious boy
    who wants to help Rylie with her newly developed problem of changing
    into a werewolf. For me, Rylie tended to rely a bit too much on Seth. It
    was almost as if she let her time with him define her. The plot was
    well developed and flowed smoothly. There was just enough mystery and
    twists to keep the reader on their toes without overdoing it. This was
    a great start to a new series. It gives enough detail and action to hook
    the reader into wanting to read the rest of the series. Be prepared,
    there is a cliffhanger and you will need the second book on hand!

    I don’t normally read Young Adult books. I love some sizzingly heat and of course, these contain none of that. After reading the blurb for both the first and second books in this series, I had to read them. If this book is any indication, I will be reading all of them.

    SM Reine is a new-to-me author who is very talented. I don’t know that I will try any other of her books besides this series as I don’t really read Young Adult, but she definitely drew me in. Riley is sent to camp so here parents can deal with their divorce. She didn’t want to go. She loves her dad and her city.

    I had figured out one of the bad guys from the beginning, but the second one, yeah I figured that out when Riley did. The heroine in this book is a strong young woman. She goes through a lot in this book and comes out a much better person for it. I will definitely be reading the second book in this series to see what happens with Rylie and Seth.

    Ms. Reine had a very good premise for the book and built on it excellently. She made me not want to send my kids to camp, that’s for sure.

    Wow.

    This so far has been one of the best books I have ever read, and I am only on page 148! I am amazed this book is free. I would have gladly paid at least three or four dollars.

    Summary of this really good book

    If you are wondering if this is a good book for kids i would have to say kids ages 10+. This book is mysterious, romantic (no inappropriate scenes if you are wondering), and gets you wondering what will happen next. Yes, it is in a series but all i have to say is that it is worth it. I recommend this book to anybody (reminder of the age appropriate) so go ahead buy it. It is free you know.

    This book was alright. It is about a girl who is almost sixteen

    This book was alright. It is about a girl who is almost sixteen, yet it reads younger. I would recommend it for the middle school crowd.

    That being said, the story itself had a great plot. I was guessing until the end about the mysterious boy and the rogue werewolf. S.M. Reine did a good job with the element of surprise.

    I liked Riley as a character. She is going through a tough time, yet she is shouldered with the burden of being bitten by a werewolf. As if that isn't hard enough, the girls at camp don't get along with Riley. She would be miserable at camp if it wasn't for Seth.

    I had a few issues with the book, but overlooked them for the good of the story. There was an immense lack of description in this book. The author told and didn't do much showing. Also, the narration throughout the story is from Riley's P.O.V. Then, the last chapter is Seth's P.O.V. That only served to confuse readers.

    Overall, the plot was good and I am curious to read the next book in the series. (There are four books total) Middle grade YA would enjoy this werewolf story.

    Great Book for Young Adult Readers and Their Parents!

    Rarely do you find a book that grabs the young adult reader that is also a good read for an adult as well. This is definitely written for the young adult reader, but much like Twilight...but better...it captures the interest of all ages. Highly suggest this book and the rest of the series as a great summer book to read with your teen or preteen to have something to talk about that is sure to spark great discussion and bring you closer to together as you talk about the characters and how they change throughout the story. Kudos to SM Reine for writing something focusing on werewolves that is so much deeper and enjoyable than the secondary werewolf characters you typically find in this genre!

    Totally Unique Read!

    I have never read anything like "Six Moon Summer." The narrative style is completely unique and that got a three star out of me just for its sheer difference. It had a "diary" type feel to it. I really felt like I WAS Rylie, like I was seeing and feeling things through her eyes.

    Rylie's character feels like a fifteen year old that's been dropped and has a small fissure that continues to "run" like a crack in the windshield that grows. Life for her has been challenging of late as she comes to terms with her parents split while being shuttled off to a summer camp.

    Her loneliness is profound and she turns inward, spending a lot of time just wanting to be left alone. Rylie has unusual coloring and looks so she never is quite successful in her desire to remain incognito. The other girls are petty and never give her a break. I felt a lot of empathy for her. Eventually she is befriended by Seth who turns into a supportive friend. The author was really clever about "outing" people that were more-or-less a surprise and I really enjoyed the way she peppered werewolf legend throughout the book. It was interesting but not like I was being "educated."

    Reine was brave and never shied away from violence or the rawness of how awful things can and do happen. I really dug that. The author must be a unique person to have written this, it's just such a different perspective than I'm used to reading and that was welcome. Sometimes the YA genre gets a "homogenized" feel that gets tiresome. This work is a fine example of a "break-out" feel that is really unique, as was the premise.

    A wonderfully unique werewolf tale

    The early part of this debut novel is a bit uneven. However, a unique, sometimes unlikable heroine and an intriguing paranormal mythology won me over at the halfway point. Six Moon Summer turned me from a reader who was "meh" about werewolves into a slavering fan. After reading this book, I now feel I know what it's like to "change." Reine has great potential as an author and I look forward to the sequel!

    A fresh take on the werewolf genre! Great for new paranormal fans and long-time fans as well!

    I loved Six Moon Summer! Now, I know I haven't read all of the werewolf books out there...there are tonnes, but I out of all the ones that I have read, I felt that Six Moon Summer was incredibly unique. Also, I thought that the title was absolutely perfect for this book, seriously PERFECT! See, in Six Moon Summer, it takes a person who is transitioning into becoming a werewolf six moons to complete the entire transformation. The six moons refers to 3 full moons, and 3 new moons, so in all it equals around 3 months. I've never read a werewolf story where the transition is in this kind of process, so I thought it was fantastic and incredibly unique. :D Now the characters. I really liked the main character Rylie. First, she has a sweet name! I have an irregular spelled name, so I won't lie, I love it when characters have names that are spelled differently too, it automatically makes me like them a little bit more...not enough to bias me, but enough for me to want to give them a high five or a solid fist bump. Second, she was kind of a brat at the beginning, but I kind of felt like it was justified. She was pretty much exiled to camp so that her parents could complete all of their divorce dealings, and once she gets to camp, everybody treats her like crap and hates her. I honestly couldn't blame her for wanting to stay in her cabin and never talk to the other girls. Eventually, after she's been bitten Rylie's attitude changes quite a bit, could be from the transformation, or it could just be her growing up, either way, by the end of the book I thought she was an admirable character and I really liked her. :) Seth...oh that mysterious sexy Seth. Did I mention mysterious, well he was, very. To keep Seth mysterious...and thus sexy, for everyone, I'm only going to stick to the basics with him. I absolutely loved him. He was kind of sketchy at times, but I couldn't help being drawn to him...probably because Rylie couldn't either. :P The story itself was awesome! It totally made me remember the one time I went to camp...we even had a dance too. I loved that it was a realistic story even though becoming a werewolf might not be that believable if it really happened. I didn't know that there was going to be a sequel until I went onto Goodreads and saw it on there, and boy was I relieved. Six Moon Summer definitely ends on a cliffhanger, and it's one that will surely have you anxious for more! :D I would recommend Six Moon Summer to all paranormal fans, especially ones partial to werewolves, and I'd also recommend it to someone who wants to read a paranormal but doesn't know where to start. This would be a fantastic book to read if you've never read anything paranormal before, and it's good for those of us who read it up like crazy too. ;) **I received an ebook from the author for an honest review, it didn't alter my opinion in any way.

    This story had a nice change in how a person becomes a werewolf.

    This story had a nice change in how a person becomes a werewolf. Of course, they have to be bitten, but it's more of a process than suddenly changing into a wolf at every full moon. Rylie seemed like an interesting character. I don't understand why other girls are so quick to hate her. Jealous maybe? It would have to be, because I think she would be a fun friend. I liked Seth quite a bit too. His heart seems to be in the right place even if it's conflicted. They are definitely attracted to each other. I would like to know more about what Rylie read in the book about werewolves. I'd like some background and history. I think that would be an interesting addition. Maybe we'll get some of that in the sequel. While I felt there were a few things missing, this story was entertaining and has me curious enough to read the sequel.
