New Teen Novel Spans the Gap Between Puberty and Turning into a Werewolf

June 7, 2016

  • Before it's release, the quirky new novel already received Honourable Mentions at both the New York and San Francisco Book Festivals.
  • Summary:'Hair in All the Wrong Places' by British/Canadian author Andrew Buckley addresses teen awkwardness, young love, and the transformation into a growling, drooling, hairy creature of the night.

    A new book from author, Andrew Buckley explores the unlikely parallel between a 13-year-old boy’s transformation into a werewolf and his struggles with school bullies, homework, and his first crush. Set against the background of the fictional town of Elkwood, young Colin Strauss is leading an average life when he’s bitten by a centuries old werewolf and must learn to deal with his new ‘changes’ and uncover the secret lurking in the town.

     

    Hair in All the Wrong Places is published by Month9Books, an imprint of the Georgia McBride Media Group. Before it’s release, the quirky new novel already received Honourable Mentions at both the New York and San Francisco Book Festivals.

     

    “I always wanted to write a werewolf novel,” says Buckley on his motivations for writing the story. “Growing up I was heavily influenced by movies that combined teen coming-of-age stories with adventure and the supernatural. The Monster Squad, The Goonies, The Lost Boys, and Michael J Fox’s Teen Wolf to name a few. I wanted to create a unique zero to hero story with a true smart-ass nice guy who just needed the right motivation to realize his true potential.”

     

    This novel is the first of Buckley’s that’s aimed at a younger audience. His previous novels, ‘Death, the Devil, and the Goldfish’, ‘Stiltskin’, and ‘Havelock’ were all aimed at adults but with his werewolf tale he’s hoping to appeal to a younger generation.

     

    A regular attendee of the San Diego Comic Con, Buckley is looking forward to taking the book to events across the West Coast over the course of this year and is developing a series of writing and story telling classes aimed at middle school-aged kids that he hopes to introduce in the Fall starting in his hometown of Kelowna, BC.

     

    Hair in All the Wrong Places will be available wherever books are sold on June 7th.
