Synopsis (Found on

Emily Webb is a geek. And she's happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she's never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she's definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls' boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates--also named Emily--is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn't know why she's doing any of this. By day, she's the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it's no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she's not just coming out of her shell . . . there's something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely-- something not human?

As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she's not the only one this is happening to--some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters--and how many people will they kill to get what they want?

My Review:

I liked this book. The take on werewolves that the author has is different for what you'd expect of a werewolf book. 

I enjoyed the multiple personality aspect of the story. I liked reading how "daytime Emily" is different from "Nighttime Emily" and "Wolf Emily". I have to say that nighttime Emily was my favorite personality because I liked reading about how wild she was. Daytime Emily was kinda boring (although like Daytime Emily, I love books and movies). 

The interview sections after every few chapters was interesting to read but confusing as well especially the last interview section. It left me confused as to what happened and how the characters ended up where they were. I hope its all cleared up in the next book. 

All in all a good read
