Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8–10—Sixteen-year-old Shelby knows she is acting out and making some bad choices when it comes to boys and dating, but she never expected her father and "wicked" stepmother to banish her to a "brat camp" for the summer. Luckily for Shelby, she is allowed to choose the artsy Camp Crescent instead of Priscilla's choice of Red Canyon—aka boot camp from hell. Camp turns out not to be a total waste even with the preachy Mr. Winters and singing guitar lady Cynthia. Shelby manages to make some new friends, but the real highlight is the arrival of Austin Bridges III. Not only is he the son of a legendary rock star, but he is also cute, kind, intriguing, and totally mysterious. Shelby is drawn to him and the terrible dark family secret that he is willing to share only with her. How can she turn her back on him, especially with the full moon only a few nights away? Davis weaves together a fast-paced action adventure story with issues of peer pressure, divorce, betrayal, friendship, acceptance, and, of course, romance. Shelby is fearless and impulsive, but she is also a caring soul who just needs to find her way in a confusing world. This novel has great teen appeal but is not as dark or edgy as others in this genre. It will leave readers wanting more.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY

“What’s a girl courted by an amber-eyed hottie to do? Fans of paranormal romance will enjoy this sweet debut.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This werewolf debut makes for a quick read and an easy sell for reluctant readers.” (ALA Booklist)

“Davis weaves together a fast-paced action adventure story with issues of peer pressure, divorce, betrayal, friendship, acceptance, and, of course, romance. This novel has great teen appeal [and] will leave readers wanting more.” (School Library Journal)

“A charmingly cute, fast-paced spin on Little Red Riding Hood on one level, a werewolf-themed romance on another, this is a quick, but thoroughly enjoyable read.” (Realms of Fantasy)

The plot was cute and fun to read.
Sarah Woodard
First off, the characters for the most part were not fully developed and semi bland.
Lauren
Sadly, we never heard again from Shelby's dad after she left for camp.

This is only the second or third werewolf book I've read (Shiver and the Twilight books being the others) and I absolutely love it. Unlike Shiver and New Moon, it wasn't a gut-wrenching book. For the most part it was highly amusing and just fun in general which is not to say it's just a laughable book - it's just not dark and mostly sad.

The idea of a werewolf at brat-camp is completely original. At that to the unique way she spins the werewolf-ism and you've got on unique novel.

I couldn't really relate to Shelby because I've never done half of the things she's done but I loved reading about her. She was just a fun character. Her parents (specifically her step-mother) were ridiculously over-the-top which, unfortunately, made them easy to relate to. (Why is it always the bad parents easy to relate to?!)

I enjoyed reading about her time at brat camp - the counselors just made me crack up half of the time.

The ending was adorable - slightly predictable but unexpected at the same time.

Overall, I highly recommend this. Pick up a copy!

Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis 5 of 5 stars.

When Shelby is packed off to "brat camp" as punishment for one too many broken curfews, things start looking up when she meets fellow camper (and son of a rock star!) Austin Bridges III. But soon Shelby realizes there's more to Authin than crush material--he wants her help guarding a dark family secret. Shelby knows that bad boys get her into trouble...but who is she to turn her back on a guy in need, especially such a good-looking one?(sumary from book)

Add a bit of Cinderella's evil step-mother to a Beauty and the Beast style tale and you get Shelby's story. Her mother died three years ago. Her chemist dad became rich for his new cosmetic and married a horrible woman with way to much plastic surgery. It isn't so surprising that Shelby would feel the need to rebel. But what she didn't know is that her new step-mother's persuasive powers could get her sent to brat camp... Luckily- or perhaps, unluckily- this brat camp is where a hot rock star's son/werewolf is spending his summer as well. Between pushy counselors and a very heavy, very scary secret, can Shelby keep it together and help save her new friend, even when a desert brat camp in hell is hanging over her head?

Never Cry Werewolf is a short read. Some of my favorite books are short, and this one is now among them. Heather Davis creates a unique and quirky voice for Shelby that I totally love. The plot is wonderful, the characters, if not always believable, awesome, and the writing to die for. I'm not big into supernatural novels, but I have a love for Jacob Black like plenty of other girls, and this book looked pretty cool. Austin is closer to your more "classic" werewolf than Jacob, but I think that's part of what makes the story more unique and likable.

Brat camp. That is where Shelby has been banished to. All because of a little innocent mischief with a few boys, Shelby's manipulative stepmother has convinced her father to send her to a brat camp promising to return a bright, well-behaved teen. If her stephmother had her way, Shelby would be on her way to an evil, militaristic style camp where they don't take it easy on "tough cases."

Instead though, Shelby's father has conceded to send her to a more tame version of brat camp deep within a forest. Naturally she meets the one kind of person she is supposed to be avoiding: a daring rebel of a guy named Austin Bridges III. She finds his British accent very attractive along with his stand-offish attitude.

Soon though, while trying to follow all the rules set forth by the camp so she can get back to "reality", Austin confesses that he is a werewolf in desperate need of his medicine. Unfortunately it was confiscated after a minor fiasco on their way to camp. Now Shelby is the only one who can help him before it is too late.

The premise of the book sounded very appealing and intriguing. Unfortunately I felt that there were parts of the story that just didn't add up in the end. The time frame for the whole camp is dramatically short for all the events that are supposed to take place during this time. The supporting characters were almost non-existent to the point that the only names I can easily recall are the two main characters. Sadly it almost felt like a short-story crammed with more "fluff" scenes to stretch it out. While I am hoping that the author might continue her work in a follow-up novel (because the ending was obviously left open for a sequel) I am not anxiously awaiting its arrival.

Shelby has had one too many broken curfews. So, her stepmother Priscella convinces Shelby's dad that Brat Camp is exactly what is needed to make her follow their rules. She meets Austin Bridges III, who is the son of a infamous rock star and has a darling British accent. Shelby realizes that there is more to Austin then just a pretty face. He has a family secret that could ruin his family. Shelby knows that bad boys cause trouble, but Austin needs help to keep his secret and the only ways that can happen is by running away from camp.
Shelby was really down to earth and caring towards Austin. Austin was sweet, like when he gave Shelby, some gummy bears to cheer her up. The plot was cute and fun to read. It was a very different take on a werewolf book. Heather Davis did a great job describing the scenery and the characters. It was an amazing debut and I loved it. It
