Last year, I had a great time with Andrew Buckley’s Hair In All The Wrong Places. It was a fabulous middle grade novel about a thirteen-year-old boy, Colin Strauss, who discovers he is actually a werewolf and consequently uncovers the strange, true nature of Elkwood, the town he lives in. The book was released by Month9Books and was also picked up by Scholastic Book Clubs in North America. I really enjoyed the book and expressed the hope that we would get to return to Colin, Becca, and Elkwood in the future. My wish is about to be granted as the second book is on the way.
If you want to know more about my thoughts on the first book, you can check out my review of Hair In All The Wrong Places.
Today is the official cover reveal for Hair In All The Wrong Places 2: The Perils Of Growing Up Werewolf. You can see the official cover below along with the blurb. Pre-order links are also included. The book will be released just a couple of days before the full hunter’s moon on October 3rd.
The book’s publisher Month9Books has an interview with Andrew on their blog were he talks about why he writes werewolves, what you can expect from the new book, revealing the new villain and clues us in on the mystery around Jeremy.
And now for the reveal!
Being a werewolf is no picnic. Colin’s constantly hungry, spends a ton of time shaving, and fights to keep his emotions in check to avoid turning into a giant, drooling, hairy, smelly, howling wolf. But Colin’s not the only creature hanging around the town of Elkwood. Vampires, zombies, goblins, ogres, and other questionable visitors and their various shenanigans have got everyone on edge.
Colin just wants to live a normal life, date, and get his homework done on time. But the town of Elkwood needs him. So when a secret government organization asks for his help, will he be able to control the animal inside, or will he give in to the perils of growing up werewolf?
