A while ago now I read a fantastic novel called Weregirl (review can be found here) and as the review was liked so much I have been asked to do the book tour! It’s great. Also, if you’d like a paperback copy please email me your name and address and you’ll be put into a draw! It is a great book and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
Nessa Kurland is running for her life.
D. Bell’s WEREGIRLis a fast-paced teen thriller set in Tether, Michigan, a town on the brink of shutdown since it was stripped of its resources by corporate polluter Dutch Chemical.
High school junior, Nessa Kurland, is a cross-country runner with her eyes set on one thing: a college scholarship as her one-way ticket out of Tether.
Talented teammate Cynthia Sinise invites Nessa on a nighttime run through Tether’s overgrown forest trails. But she speeds ahead, leaving Nessa alone to discover a trapped wolf. Nessa tries to free the animal but is badly bitten, seemingly ruining her hopes for a strong fall season with the cross-country team.
Instead, Nessa’s freakishly quick recovery is followed by improved running times. All her senses are heightened. Nessa has transformed.
She has become a werewolf.
In her new state, Nessa learns there are things about Tether that powerful people want to keep hidden. Why does a Nobel Laureate work at the small-town medical clinic? Are top college athletic scouts really interested in her emerging talent? Can she trust Chayton, the motorcycle-riding guide her friends have faith in? WEREGIRL‘s Nessa must navigate her junior year and true human darkness, while making peace with her new, wild nature.
She ran faster and farther than she ever had before. She felt blood pumping into her heart. She was aware of life in the forest in ways she had never been before, though she had always loved it, always found herself happy here. She could see it living and moving all around her. She could hear the running of water, the music of wind in the trees. She could smell the heaviness of leaves turning to soil, the acidity given off by the broken branch of a pine tree.
Her own body was strong and light in a way she had never felt it to be at home or in school. She vaulted over dips in the trail. She leapt up onto fallen trees to get a view of what was ahead.
Everything was glowing and shining, and she herself was flying inside that glow. She could do anything. Be anything.
Nessa had never really felt truly beautiful before, but tonight she not only understood that she was beautiful, she understood that everyone was. That for all the competition and fear and knowing that the next runner was coming up behind you, she had been missing out on how beautiful life could be. She should have been watching and appreciating others instead of waiting inside herself for the right time to shine. The time was now.
She ran—danced?—through the loop of the trail and then up into the pastures behind Joe Bent’s farm.

AUTHOR & PUBLISHER BIO:
About C. D. Bell:
When she’s not biking the streets of Brooklyn, NY, you can find C. D. Bell writing in a decrepit RV clinging to the side of a hill in upstate New York, trying to teach herself to watercolor, or inventing her own recipes. She is a voracious reader of anything and everything fantasy, supernatural, or romance. And she swears that the monsters she often writes about are not real– at least she hopes not.
Created by a talented team of six female writers and inspired by the working tradition of television writers, C. D. Bell is a Chooseco author pseudonym developed with teen author Cathleen Davitt Bell, who has written I Remember You [Knopf 2015], among other novels for young adults.
The second installment of the WEREGIRL trilogy is already in the works.
Chooseco publishes the Choose Your Own Adventure series. Widely commended for its appeal to reluctant readers, the interactive, multiple-choice multiple-ending series is the 4th-bestselling series for children ever published, with more than 265 million copies translated into 38 languages. Chooseco has sold over 10 million copies since the series re-launch in 2006. Weregirl represents Chooseco’s first foray into full-length, non-interactive young adult fiction.
