The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks

The Abused Werewolf Rescue GroupStrange things are happening to Toby including being found naked in a dingo pen. When Reuben and Father Ramon try to convince him that he is a werewolf neither Toby nor his mom will believe it.  However, when Toby is kidnapped by a group of people who abuse werewolves by making money off of them fighting and destroying others, Toby begins to believe. 

A companion novel to The Reformed Vampire Support Group (for review click here) this book is just as clever and just as funny.  Many characters return in addition to Reuben (the vampires rescued him from captivity), Nina the 15 year-old vampire and her mother.  Toby's story is told in first person and as the story progresses his intelligence shines through as his powers grow.  He is a compassionate boy and looks out for others.  A quick and enjoyable read. Recommended for fans of vampire and werewolf stories.  Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt via Netgalley.  The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on April 4, 2011.
