The Perils of Growing Up Werewolf (Hair in all the Wrong Places #2) by Andrew Buckley

"This is the Christmas present you are looking for if you have a 15 ish-year-old, who is a little socially awkward, and into werewolves/fantasy. The book has a great sense of humour, and I love how the author talks to you at the beginning of these books." - D.M., Goodreads


Published: October 3rd, 2017

Being a werewolf is no picnic. Colin’s constantly hungry, spends a ton of time shaving, and fights to keep his emotions in check to avoid turning into a giant, drooling, hairy, smelly, howling wolf. But Colin’s not the only creature hanging around the town of Elkwood. Vampires, zombies, goblins, ogres, and other questionable visitors and their various shenanigans have got everyone on edge.

Colin just wants to live a normal life, date, and get his homework done on time. But the town of Elkwood needs him. So when a secret government organization asks for his help, will he be able to control the animal inside, or will he give in to the perils of growing up werewolf?

"This author immediately pulls you in and entangles you in the story line with his witty reportoire and characters that you'll quickly fall in love with. This is a book you'll want to read over and over again!!" - Laura, Goodreads

Hair in all the Wrong Places

What has he done? 
What's happening to him? 
And what on Earth is that smell? 

For Colin Strauss, puberty stinks. Blackouts, hallucinations, and lapses in memory are the perils of growing up werewolf. 

Worse than that, Colin worries he might have had something to do with the recent attacks on the townspeople. He may have eaten a person. It doesn’t matter that it’s someone he doesn’t particularly like. What kind of boy goes around eating people? 

Foolishly, all Colin can think about is how Becca Emerson finally kissed him for the first time. Yep, hormones are afoot. Yikes! 

But girls will have to wait. Collin better get himself under control before someone else ends up hurt or worse . . . dead.

The World of . . . Elkwood

In HAIR IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES 2: THE PERILS OF GROWING UP WEREWOLF, the word of Elkwood begins to grow outside of what we already know.

In the first book, Elkwood was introduced as a sort of haven for creatures and magical types; a government sanctioned community where werewolves, vampires, witches, wizards, ogres, and everything in between can live safely in relative harmony.

But what about the world outside of Elkwood? Are there more towns harboring things that go bump in the night?

In the second book, you’ll discover that Elkwood isn’t the only town of its kind. Even more so, there are a lot more magical types out there, and not everyone agrees that the freaks and the norms should all be living together. And maybe, just maybe, there’s something much darker and much more sinister on the horizon.

But how does this whole crazy world exist?

A long time ago, at the turn of the 20th century, the American government privately recognized the existence of magical types and creatures previously thought to be nothing more than myth and legend. The leaders of the free world and representatives of the different groups of ‘special people’ agreed that the public would never be prepared to acknowledge the existence of ogres, goblins, fairies, demons, vampires, werewolves, and magic. It was agreed that special towns would be set up to help protect the different factions and tribes. After many failed attempts, these magically hidden towns began to take shape and creatures of all shapes and sizes began to find a home.

But not all vampires, werewolves, and demons feel that living in hiding is the right thing to do. As a new century turned, these rebellious factions started to take action leaving a wake of death and destruction wherever they cropped up. The government, needing an answer, turned to the town of Elkwood, one of their most successful projects, for an answer.
