Description

When sixteen-year-old Lily Willison and her friends Nikki, Arielle, and Grazia start up a girls' soccer club and name their team the Weregirls, they soon find themselves drawn into a battle between good and evil. Lily's father, a supernatural guardian, makes contact with Lily after his death and reveals that she has magical powers--as do her friends.

As the girls learn more about their powers, they inadvertently awaken the Breed, sworn enemies of the Weregirls. To fight the Weregirls, the Breed Master calls upon Lily's soccer rival--the rich, conceited, and arrogant Andra Hewlit. Desperate for powers of her own, Andra will do anything she can to destroy Lily and the Weregirls....

Our customer reviews

Lily and her friends start up a club soccer team, calling themselves the Weregirls after stories Lily's now deceased father told them. What they don't realize is that the stories he was spinning were more than just tall tales. Lily and her friends have an ancient magic hidden inside of them and it's starting to show. Unfortunately for them, a new girl, Andra, moves into town with her heart set on a varsity team. Andra's moneyed background makes her a force to reckon with and, before long, she has the principal on her side. Andra's also discovered Lily's secret -- and she'll do anything to get her hands on magical powers. Can Lily learn enough about her powers in order to save herself, her friends, and her soccer team? BIRTH OF THE PACK is the first in the new, edgy WEREGIRLS series. It's sure to be a hit with girls reading vampire and supernatural tales.show more
