This YA book is funny and engaging enough to attract readers beyond its target market. Daniel's struggles to understand what his new identity as a shifter means for his future in this world and his past relationships are beautifully written.
Adult choices are thrust upon him before he feels ready to make them but the serious issues are expertly leavened with humour (Where do your clothes go when you shift? What do the family pets make of you now that you're their size? Will whatever you've just eaten still look tasty when you shift back?).
It is unusual to find a début novel written with such a deft and assured touch. The ground has been laid for a sequel and I for one will definitely buy it. I strongly recommend that you do the same.
