The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group by Catherine Jinks

Andrea F.,    17   
Catherine Jinks   
The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group   
Harcourt    2011 

          The sequel/companion to The Reformed Vampire Support Group, The Abused Werewolf Support Group follows Toby, a teen living in Australia who wakes up one morning naked, in a dingo pen, in a Wildlife Park. He has no memory of how he got there, he doesn't drink or take drugs, and when his brain is scanned there is no trace of anything that would cause memory loss. When a man who looks like he should be the head of a Harley gang and a priest turn up insisting that Toby is a werewolf he brushes them off as kooks. He's convinced however when he's kidnapped by a werewolf fighting ring and he needs all the help he can get to get out. After reading The Reformed Vampire Support Group, I was expecting the same level of humor from it's sequel. I was disappointed. It was a good book in and of itself but I was too  disappointed by the lack of laughs to appreciate it. 7/10    

Rating:4 Better than most
