Hair in All the Wrong Places by Andrew Buckley is more than just another book on werewolves. Colin Strauss had been moving around from one relative's place to another. His parents did not wish to take the responsibility of raising their boy. Finally, at the age of thirteen, he was left in the care of his cranky old grandmother. She was visually impaired, yet she always commented on Colin's appearance and sat in front of the television. Just when Colin thought he had enough problems with his annoying grandmother, bullying classmates, and a hopeless crush on Becca, a werewolf bit him. And the next day, he learned that one of his bullies had been attacked and killed by a wild animal. Since Colin could not remember much of the details of the previous night, he wondered if he was the killer.

The light comedy in Hair in All the Wrong Places is refreshing. The conversations ping pong back and forth in the sense that the dialogues seem spontaneous and engaging. The plot quickly establishes a connection between readers and Colin. There is always a mystery to be solved that keeps readers hooked to the plot. Andrew Buckley, a marvelous storyteller, has used just the right words and the perfect pace to tell the story of a teenage werewolf. The action scenes are not gruesome at all. Hair in All the Wrong Places by Andrew Buckley is a quick read filled with teenage drama, humorous conversation, and an engaging plot.
