 After her parents divorce, Chloe Williams moves from a comfortable life in Fort Collins to a smaller town. She was popular back home, but at the new school she just doesn’t fit in. Everyone is secretive and pretty much ignores her. Everyone that is, except “the pack”, a group of kids that always hang out together and can sometimes be downright mean. Her one and only friend, Jenna, is an even bigger outcast than she is. Jenna dabbles in witchcraft and claims to be able to open Chloe’s eyes to the hidden world around them and that includes the creatures lurking in the dark. The only thing Chloe is interested in “eyeing” is Jenna’s older cousin, Ryan, who also happens to be a werewolf.

When a classmate goes missing, the girls form a search party. Everything is turned upside down by fear and hatred as the town begins a manhunt. Chloe has a secret of her own and it just may be the key to finding the missing boy. She has just begun to develop feelings for Ryan when his troubled past and recent friction with the victim comes to light. Can Chloe help prove his innocence or will she lose her first love forever?

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s Review***
As an adult I enjoy Young Adult books just as much now as I did then and The Bad Wolf was no exception. It was an awesome read that kept me up way past my bed time.  It’s hard to explain to your boss that you were kept up by a great story but I enjoyed every minute of this book and couldn’t stop turning the pages.  This is one book that was well worth the lack of sleep.

The story flowed perfectly and the characters were very well developed and believable. Chloe is the typical bratty, mouthy, whiney teenager. She’s hurt, confused,angry and scared when her parents get divorced and she’s forced to move from a big city to a small town. She tries everything to fit in but nothing works. She eventually makes friend with a “goth” girl, Jenna, and Jenna’s cousin, Ryan, who is very confusing. One second Ryan is nice to her, the next he’s being a jerk to her and everyone around them.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves YA paranormal with a touch of romance.
This book contains drama, minor romance, mystery and some paranormal too! It is a page turner from beginning to end! Michelle Clay paints a vivid world with her use of words and it enabled me to easily picture myself friends with Chloe and her mother, at the Veterinary office, I could feel the sensation of fur running through my fingers and the sheer terror in the big fight scene, as well as at the site of the murder.  It felt like the reader was actually right there with them and it takes a good writer to make the reader feel this way.  Add this to your TBR list and read it sooner rather than later because it is well worth the read!
