The sheer originality of this book amazing. A werewolf (well, more like were-dog) story set in LA, involving criminal schemes, star-crossed love, and a startlingly real examination of both human and canine behavior - all presented in free verse.
But don't let the poetry aspect dissuade you - the book reads like a graphic novel or a story told in text messages. All the extraneous details are stripped away leaving only the frenetic action and raw emotions of the story. It does have a large cast of characters and a number of interweaving plots that can be confusing at times, but my copy at least came with a handy Dramatis Personae section to help out there.
