Book Review
Characterizing the adolescent experience as monstrous is not exactly a new idea. M.T. Anderson's woefully confused teen vampire in Thirsty and Jean Thesman's reluctant young witch in The Other Ones serve as excellent examples of this metaphor set to fiction. But no one really captures how our hormones make us howl as well as Annette Curtis Klause. Blood and Chocolate chronicles the longings and passions of one Vivian Gandillon, teenage werewolf. Her pack family, recently burned out of their West Virginia home by suspicious neighbors, has resettled in a sleepy Maryland suburb. At her new school, Viv quickly falls for sensitive heartthrob Aiden, a human--or "meat-boy," as her pack calls him. Soon she is trying to tame her undomesticated desires to match his more civilized sensibilities. "He was gentle. She hadn't expected...

From Publishers Weekly
This intergalactic murder mystery, according to PW, boasts "exceptionally well-drawn and appealing" main characters?a 13-year-old girl and her alien friend Hush. Ages 10-up. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From AudioFile
Imagine a spaceship hurtling through hyperspace transporting an alien Shoowa named Hush and a seventh-grade girl named Puck. Moore's emphatic reading provides a current of excitement and urgency in this tale of interstellar crime and sabotage. The reading is purposeful, a suitable reflection of Puck's personality. Particularly well rendered is her interpretation of Hush's breathy voice and lilting diction. His use of words in the wrong part of speech is made more appealing by Moore's...


The Color of Absence: 12 Stories about Loss And Hope

Book Review
Virginia Euwer Wolff (Make Lemonade, Bat 6) sums up the essence of the 12 stories in The Color of Absence: "One of the things that interests me most about loss is that often, while we are being swept away by losing something, we are gaining something else that totally surprises us." A dozen young adult authors look at this paradox in all its guises as it touches young lives, in this collection of short fictional pieces edited by James Howe. Two of the stories are extraordinary--Wolff's own "Chair," which dramatizes the heartbreaking descent into Alzheimer's over three visits between an old man and his great-grandson, and Annette Curtis Klause's delicate and astonishingly moving tale of a vampire who rediscovers love through the affection and death of a small cat. Knowledgeable fans of young adult literature will be intrigued...
