Johnson, Christine. Claire de Lune, 352 pgs. Simon Pulse, 2010. $16.99. Sexual Content-PG; Language-PG (26 swears); Violence-PG. Claire’s pool party for her sixteenth birthday ends early because of a werewolf spotting in the near woods. Due to recent werewolf attacks and deaths, many teens are no longer allowed to go out after dark. Claire’s mom tells her that she’s a werewolf and Claire is too. She explains that all werewolves are female and that their pack only hunts animals. The werewolf who is killing humans is a rogue werewolf that their pack is hunting. Humans are also hunting werewolves and the man leading the hunt is the father of Claire’s romantic interest Matthew. Claire is torn by her attraction to Matthew, her transforming body, and her loyalty to her new pack. The story is standard paranormal fare that will appeal to werewolf fans. MS/HS – ADVISABLE.
