About the Author

Sandra Evans drew inspiration for This Is Not a Werewolf Story from cultural sources, including the "sympathetic werewolf" stories of twelfth-century France and Celtic myths. She wrote the novel for (and with input from) her son. Sandra is a native of Whidbey Island and earned her doctorate in French literature from the University of Washington. This Is Not a Werewolf Story is her first book for children.

Reviews

"This is a novel about commitments, and about mystery, and about our deepest identities--which is to say, this is a novel about love. In trying to discover who he is, Raul finds that the greatest discoveries are those of the heart, human and otherwise. It is a journey that every reader needs to go on, and how splendid to find a book that gives such companions to walk with along the way."--Gary Schmidt, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Wednesday Wars
"Raul's wry, likable voice elevates this debut, and Evans' depictions of the shifting natures of tween friendship remain firmly grounded even as the narrative becomes more fantastical. A cut above."--Booklist, starred review
"Mystery and suspense abound in Evans's debut novel . . . Raul is an insightful, introspective youth, and Evans weaves a compelling story from his point of view, bolstered by a strong supporting cast."--Publishers Weekly
"Heartfelt, enigmatic, and ethereal, Evans's excellent debut novel takes readers on a roller coaster of emotion and keeps them guessing the whole way through."--School Library Journal
"Raul's story of courage in the face of bullying and life-threatening danger in an easy read will appeal to readers of suspense and adventure tales."--School Library Connection
