Okay, wow. I can't believe how long it's been since I've read a story containing werewolves, and usually those involve other supernatural creatures – most commonly vampires. And they never get along if you want to call up Edward and Jacob, who are probably getting along fine as of Breaking Dawn.
Six Moon Summer was an interesting story, yet a not so interesting story. The story mainly focuses on Rylie's transformation from a human to a werewolf at a summer camp, with the prologue giving a flash forward. Being the first in the series, I'll let it slide – I mean, how else are we supposed to know how Rylie became a werewolf? She was born that way? Yeah. Sureee. Seems legit. *flips hair*
The book just didn't seem to be very interesting due to the cliché. I think I'm done with clichés, but I do seem to see Mean Girls commonly throughout the book. Rylie's the sore thumb sticking out from a bunch of popular girls who are just downright nasty and cruel at a summer camp. And while I really hated Mean Girls – it was just downright annoying. Just a bunch of girls who are basically "we rule the world and if you don't like it, screw you and you don't exist." – I didn't let it influence my thoughts on Six Moon Summer. Actually, I did... but only on the cliché part.
Near the end where it suddenly switches to Seth's POV was sort of distracting, even if there was a sign. It just felt a bit out of place – it's in Rylie's view, and if it isn't, it's her as a wolf but still her regardless – and could've worked better as a separate chapter rather than tacking it with Rylie's POV in the exact same chapter.
Nevertheless, I'm curious about the other books in the series – why yes, I have them as well (they were completely free, okay?) – and there's got to be something other than transformations right??? Rylie can't exactly go through TWO transformations, can she? I mean, I find that pretty impossible unless this is a stand alone series like Stravaganza.
