Why the Mad Scientist read this book: Picked up an ARC from BEA 2011. I set this one aside because I had no real interest in it. I was wrong.
First Lines: My mother thinks I'm dead.
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and all that jazz. Anna used to be the abstinence poster girl, but post-Shaw, you could write a comic book about the many adventures of her vagina. It could wear a cape."
-- Page 41
"How is it that you have friends, Noah?"
"I ask myself that daily." He chomped down on the plastic straw.
"Seriously. Inquiring minds want to know."
-- Page 192
"Your're distracting," I said truthfully.
"I won't be. I promise," Noah said. "I'll get some crayons and draw quietly. Alone. In a corner."
This book is out now. Go buy it because the Mad Scientist could sum them book up with three letters. WOW!!

It was a short book that I thought I could finish quickly.
A thought crossed my mechanical brain... This might be a good book for Tweens and a cute read for fans of Werewolf lore.
