Facing adolescence is difficult enough, but compound it by discovering your true identity is not merely the freckle-faced girl you thought you were, but that of shapeshifter. Emma Quinne has been enrolled in Volegrim Academy (a school for were-creatures) by her mother in hopes the instructors can get her "unstuck" from her human form. Here Emma meets Jack Hedge, a boy whose "other" is a traditional werewolf, and Aveline Fortescue—a French were-bat—who know many of the institution's secrets. Primarily, the sinister agenda of headmistress Dr. Long and her relationship with a secret society of hunters who prey on shapeshifters. But before dealing with new friends, new classes, and new threats, Emma must deal with unleashing the tremendous force that sleeps beneath her skin.

About the Author
A.D. Goodman loves to read. When he was a child, maybe even about your age, he discovered the first book he ever loved—The Golden Book of Poetry—from which Sarah reads to Emma in the first chapter of Emma Tremendous. He also has an innate curiosity when it comes to exploring—even if it means bending a few rules (but you didn’t hear him say that!) A.D. hopes to pass the love for both reading and exploration on to his daughters, and he also hopes you enjoy Emma as much as he enjoyed writing it.
A.D. Goodman lives in the Chicagoland area and is working on the second book in the Tremendous series.
