Review of Six Moon Summer by S.M. Reine


Rylie's been bitten.

She's changing.

And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf... forever.

Rylie Gresham hates everything about summer camp: the food, the fresh air, the dumb activities, and the other girls in her cabin. But the worst part is probably being bitten by a werewolf. Being a teenager is hard enough, but now she's craving raw flesh and struggles with uncontrollable anger. If she doesn't figure out a way to stop the transformation, then at the end of summer, her life is worse than over. She'll be a monster.


This book was alright.  It is about a girl who is almost sixteen, yet it reads younger.  I would recommend it for the middle school crowd.

That being said, the story itself had a great plot.  I was guessing until the end about the mysterious boy and the rogue werewolf.  S.M. Reine did a good job with the element of surprise.

I liked Riley as a character.  She is going through a tough time, yet she is shouldered with the burden of being bitten by a werewolf.  As if that isn't hard enough, the girls at camp don't get along with Riley.  She would be miserable at camp if it wasn't for Seth.

I had a few issues with the book, but overlooked them for the good of the story.  There was an immense lack of description in this book.  The author told and didn't do much showing.  Also, the narration throughout the story is from Riley's P.O.V.  Then, the last chapter is Seth's P.O.V.  That only served to confuse readers.

Overall, the plot was good and I am curious to read the next book in the series.  (There are four books total)  Middle grade YA would enjoy this werewolf story.
