Raul states on the cover of the book that this is not a werewolf story, it is my story! The story takes place at a boarding school and Raul has a secret. The book is done in the first person with Raul talking about himself and the other kids at the One of Our Kind boarding school.
The cast of characters have boyhood names like Sparrow and Mean Jack. Raul is the strong silent type who doesn't do a lot of self expression but when he does, the other kids listen. The school is staffed by people who are vaguely disinterested or hostile to the kids.
This is a well crafted tale of kids and how they deal with being shuffled off to boarding school and the relationships therein some of which are beyond remarkable.
The settings are at the school, the woods, the fort, the zoo and the lighthouse.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
