Evie Wilder just found out she's a werewolf. Now her mom's gone missing, she and her sister Kate have to go into hiding, and there's not a single helpful vampire slayer to be found.

With the help of Kevin, the dorky-hot manager of the guesthouse where she and Kate lie low, Evie starts to harness her wolfish side. But Kevin seems to know a suspicious amount about vampires...

Meanwhile, animal attacks are increasing, local teens are going missing, and Evie is about to find herself at the centre of a supernatural showdown.

Review quote

"FREAKING AMAZING! The perfect story to fill that Buffy-shaped hole in your soul." -- Sinead O'Hart, author of Skyborn "An absolute riot - I loved it." * Kat Ellis, author of Wicked Little Deeds * "Brilliant and completely refreshing, and simply so much fun." -- Gina Blaxill, author of You Can Trust Me "Big Bad Me is such a fun read and toes the line between comedy and drama beautifully. Evie and Kate led me on a quippy adventure with heart. I loved watching them find their family and at the same time felt like part of it. The writing is absolutely joyful. I loved every page!" -- Naomi Gibson, author of Every Line of You "A new take on the world of werewolves that's fresh, fast-paced and funny. Adventure, witty dialogue and romance shot through with a delicious tingle of real horror - great fun!" * Andreina Cordani, author of Dead Lucky * "Witty, funny, edgy, and smart." -- Alison Weatherby, author of The Secrets Act "Full of fangs and fun! Big Bad Me is a rip-roaring adventure featuring a memorable cast of badass yet beautifully vulnerable characters. Sharp and witty, this is not a novel you'll want to miss!" * Ann Sei Lin, author of Rebel Skies * 'Bloodily funny and appallingly enthralling, this YA debut is a crowd-pleaser for Buffy fans.' * The Guardian * "There's blood and guts and vomiting, and yet there's also a strange wholesomeness about this "little monster

family" ... endearing and action-packed." -- Claire Hennessy * The Irish Times * "Written with confidence, panache and oodles of humour, this book is a must for Buffy fans young and old. Great fun." * Irish Independent * "Brimming with fourth-wall-breaking asides and well-timed humor." * Publishers Weekly * "Funny and charming ... Straightforward supernatural fun." * Kirkus Reviews * "A werewolf fantasy that doesn't hold back on bite." * The Business Post * "Fast-paced adventure with lots of monsters, laughs and witty dialogue." * Irish Examiner * "A very enjoyable book with its own type of humour." * Paper Lanterns * "Warning - don't get too attached to the ordinary humans you meet in this wryly humorous, grittily realistic supernatural thriller, ordinary people don't do well in this world. But do get attached to Aislinn O Loughlin's writing, because you'll be seeing a lot more of her!" -- Bryony Pearce, author of Savage Island and Raising Hell "One of my favorite books that I have read this year ... Big Bad Me is impossible to put down." * Bots Book Shelf * "An action-packed, extremely inventive and highly amusing exploration of the perils of being a teenage werewolf, Big Bad Me has plenty of bite!" * Paperback Snob * "Evie and Kate's relationship is absolutely gorgeous ...I have no idea what Aislinn is doing next, but I do know I'll be reading it regardless." * Golden Books Girl * "Fans of gore with a humorous twist will revel in this book, heavily laced as it is with all manner of slaughtering and mayhem, topped off with quips and asides ... O'Loughlin consistently delivers laugh out loud lines, juxtaposing them with the most bloodthirsty passages to great effect." * Books for Keeps * "A must-read for fans of teenage werewolf/vampire fiction ... O'Loughlin's novel offers more than this, however ... O'Loughlin encourages the reader to confront and embrace their own idiosyncrasies." * Inis * "I loved it. The book was so much fun. I loved the blending of vampires, werewolves, and lore." * NetGalley Educator *

About Aislinn O'Loughlin

Aislinn O'Loughlin grew up in Dublin, on a diet of fairy tales and horror stories - often at the same time. (Her biggest fear was the Big Bad Wolf escaping his story to eat her.)

After writing several books in her teens, Aislinn worked as a storyteller and creative-writing teacher, before moving to Toronto, where she sometimes took her kids to daycare in a sled. (Yes, really!) These days, she lives in Waterford with her scientist husband, three brilliant children and two evil genius cats. The Big Bad Wolf is welcome any time
