There’s a new young adult werewolf novel heading our way – one that is totally geared towards the younger teen readers. The book is Bad Hair Day by Carrie Harris, the second novel in the The Grable Books, a series with quite the fanbase. After doing some internet stalking, the author of the series seems like a rad (and slightly insane) woman, which give me high hopes for her books. Check out the description for her upcoming werewolf novel, which hits stores November 13, 2012.
“Kate Grable is geeked out to shadow the county medical examiner as part of her school’s premed program. But after he’s arrested for murder, she’s left with the bodies. And when Kate’s brother, Jonah, stumbles upon a dead gamer girl, Kate realizes that the zombie epidemic she cured last fall was only the beginning of the weirdness taking over her town. Someone—or something—is murdering kids. Something really hairy. And strong. Possibly with claws.
Could it be werewolves, like Jonah and his dorktastic friends think? Kate’s supposed to be a butt-kicking, zombie-killing genius . . . but if she can’t figure out what’s behind the freakish attacks, the victims—or what’s left of them—are going to keep piling up.”
Yeah, it’s definitely a series for teenage girls. But hell, it sounds amusing and it could be good read. It has potential to be a fun ride. Plus the first book in the series, Bad Taste in Boys, has over a thousand reviews on Goodreads, most of which are positive, so here’s hoping this werewolf book is as good.
Anyone here planning on picking up Bad Hair Day? Or is this humorous werewolf novel one you’ll be passing on?
