My Review Forbidden: Discover the Legend
Mostly it is high school typical of every high school, You have your clicks, don't fit in, don't get along with your parents. You have a crush on someone and someone different likes you. All the regular teenage dramas except you learn that some of the teenagers are not teenager or even human. That jealousy can kill you. That the weird girl has a reason for being different. That their is more differences around than just country over city.
Lila's parents got a divorce and her mom has moved back to the town she grew up it. It is cheaper to live in the country than the city. Lila's first few days of school she realizes that she does not fit in. No one even talks to her. Her mom does not care about her.
Then when she meets someone Cresida she tries to tell her about the werewolves. That they want her. Cresida is different. She used to be one of the popular kids. Now she stays off by herself.
The cool kids invite her to join their group that is competing in dance troupe they are short one girl. They start to pressure her to come watch them. They make her feel like she belongs.
One of the cool guys Reid becomes her boyfriend fast. Lila ends up sleeping with him but all she can think of is another boy Sky.
Cresida is still watching her. Warning her away from the group and than telling her it might be better if she does hang with them.
I cared about the characters. I wanted things to workout for Lila. It is funny that Lila's mom was worried more about her when she was doing good then when she was sneaking out drinking and having sex.
As a parent I did not like how fast and easy Lila and Reid got together. Especially when she was thinking about Sky Reid's best friend.
The Mythology of where and how the werewolves came to be really has not made sense to me. Maybe as the next book comes out I will see and understand that part of the story more.
Some of the werewolves are much older than high school age. Werewolves look really young and fit. You can't just tell how old one is by looking at them.
I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I hate having to wait for the next part of the story.
