Hair in All the Wrong Places by Andrew Buckley
Publication Date: June 7, 2016
What has he done?
What’s happening to him?
And what on Earth is that smell?
For Colin Strauss, puberty stinks. Blackouts, hallucinations, and lapses in memory are the perils of growing up werewolf.
Worse than that, Colin worries he might have had something to do with the recent attacks on the townspeople. He may have eaten a person. It doesn’t matter that it’s someone he doesn’t particularly like. What kind of boy goes around eating people?
Foolishly, all Colin can think about is how Becca Emerson finally kissed him for the first time. Yep, hormones are afoot. Yikes!
But girls will have to wait. Colin better get himself under control before someone else ends up hurt or worse . . . dead.
Fun, funny, and full of good advice for general hygiene of a teen, this book had me in stitches. I’ve never seen the MTV Teen Wolf but I totally saw the Marty McFly version and was reminded of it a time or two whilst reading about the high school troubles of a boy who learns he has the wolfy gene. The main thing I enjoyed aside from the humor was the fact that this wasn’t full of extraneous events or drama that had nothing to do with the story. It followed a reasonable arc and concluded in a sensible manner. I’d almost put this in the middle grade category except that it deals with a few situations that go beyond that, and without going into too much detail, I felt the author handled the less than glamorous details with aplomb. Freaks and Geeks with more fur, Hair in All the Wrong Places was a delight and I’d recommend it for paranormal and mythology fans alike.
