Once in a Full Moon- Ellen Schreiber
I’m not really a werewolf YA paranormal romance girl. I mean there are exceptions- 13 to Life, Sisters Red, and Shiver, but other than that I’m sort of indifferent about the whole werewolf trend. Once in a Full Moon was a werewolf story I can get behind. In under 200 pages, Schreiber transforms herself into one of the best of the bunch in werewolves far exceeding her original series Vampire Kisses. Rather than a pure paranormal romance, the book provokes thought on friendship, class division, societal expectations, and the importance of charity and service. Ultimately, it’s short, sweet and packs a thoughtful punch.

Grace and Daniel keep Bree Despain’s novel going from start to finish. Daniel’s compelling bad boy mystique and Grace’s naive but endearing optimistic outlook make the passionate connection between interesting. The writing was full of Christian ethos and good plot twists. Though I wasn’t fully satisfied with the ending, I thought overall it was a job well done.
