I loved this book. Charles de Lint writes of the extraordinary so that,like Stephen King,it seems perfectly acceptable. SPOILERS--In this book,a small town suddenly find their young people are finding they can release their inner animal. Of course,then you get the inevitable bad guys(the men in black) who seem to want them. Is it for security(a huge gorilla running around,for instance,would cause a security prob)or is it someone with an ulterior motive. Three high school kids,friends since forever,find themselves mixed up in it when one of the changes and discovers his wildling nature.I hope he writes morelike this and turns it into a series. Great book.
