This was a fairly easy fantasy graphic novel but did have some tidbits I think others might have issues about. With that being said, there is some cursing and discussion of sexual topics, if that’s not your thing, maybe skip this one. 

This story is about three high school girls in a werewolf pack who need a fourth when a new girl starts at their school that seems the perfect fit. They get her alone and offer to change her and explain how it works: they’re faster, stronger, and better looking but they have to devour a human body once a month. And they always pick jerks and they can leave zero evidence. Except things go very wrong when the alpha’s boyfriend hits on one of the other girls. The art is reminiscent of 80’s neon, but with a modern twist. I thoroughly enjoyed the title and would read more by these lovely graphic artists: Maggie Tokuda-Hall & Lisa Sterle.
