Weird things are happening in Elkwood. Colin is used to a grandma who controls the weather, magic and hanging out with other werewolves, but this is different. Elkwood needs Colin to fix the problem, will he be able to do it, even though he's still young and hasn't been a werewolf all that long? Who can he count on for help and will he manage to come up with a plan that works?
Hair in All the Wrong Places 2 (The Perils of Growing Up Werewolf) is a fantastic gripping story. Colin is kindhearted and caring. He can be dangerous when he's in wolf form, but he's also just a regular teenager. I loved these two different sides of his character. He's very much in love, he likes spending time with his girlfriend Becca, he's a good friend, stands up to bullies and he loves food. I liked how he remains so normal, while he's also strong, smart and resilient and takes being a wolf seriously. He's a fantastic hero and I enjoyed reading about his adventures.
I couldn't wait to read another story set in Elkwood, it's such a fascinating fictional town. It was fun to read more about the different inhabitants and their abilities. There's such a great variety of supernatural characters and they're all fabulous. Andew Buckley's tone of voice is filled with sympathy and he has a catchy sense of humor that always makes me smile. Hair in All the Wrong Places 2 (The Perils of Growing Up Werewolf) is just as good as the first book in the series, Hair in All the Wrong Places. The stories are dynamic, entertaining, captivating and clever. I love this series and highly recommend it.
Colin is a 13-year-old boy living in Elkwood with his grandmother. Elkwood is no ordinary town, and Colin is no ordinary boy. After being bitten by Silas and turned into a werewolf, Colin is adjusting to his new life in a town filled with supernatural beings. While working with the Night Watch, a unit tasked with fighting rogue supernaturals, Colin encounters a being with red eyes, floating in the air. Things escalate and the situation ends badly. No one will believe Colin about the being and he is sent off in disgrace.
Colin and his witch girlfriend are back at school when a new principal arrives. Something is very off about him though. Soon stranger than normal strange things occur, and with the Night Watch away, it is up to Colin to save the day. It’s a huge burden to place on a young werewolf who hasn’t even transitioned at full moon by himself. Is Colin up to the task? And if not, is there anyone available to help?
Another great piece of writing by Andrew Buckley! He has taken the generally overworked supernatural sensation and put his spin on it. To be able to ensure that a middle grade book has enough substance to entertain an adult takes skill, and this series certainly entertains. You get action, humour, a clever storyline and a moral or two thrown in for good measure. Sometimes characters and plots can become cumbersome with descriptions or just too much info. Here we are presented with just enough so that the flow of reading is very comfortable. The author has a very easy to read writing style, which makes reading the book a pleasure. A clever little twist on the end definitely leaves you wanting more. Colin’s character is growing and many of his decisions are indicative of a good role model. New characters have entered the story, some good and some bad; but they all have their place.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to see what happens with Colin and Elkwood.
