Kids say (1 ):

Not Your Ordinary Wolf Girl is a fun story with interesting characters. Readers will root for Sam, who would definitely rather be a typical teen, as she comes to grips with her new reality. Although the story moves along quickly, almost half the book is spent building up to Sam's werewolf transformation. The frequent arguments along the way drag the story down. A cliffhanger ending leaves readers in suspense about what's next for Sam and her pack.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
