Clouds Over Akaloshia
by Riley Moreno
Cara is in her Junior year of High School. Her father is fighting in Iraq and her mother’s job has brought them to California. Born and brought up in New Jersey, Cara feels alien in LA, until she meets Chad Lyons and a bunch of frenemies. While trying to meddle in matters that don’t concern her, Cara stumbles upon a secret that Chad is keeping from her, but when she wises up to what he and the others are up to, Cara becomes enmeshed in the most dangerous adventure ever. Her school term is fraught with encounters with werewolves, fending off threats imposed by a new breed of shapeshifters, and a discovery of worlds beyond her own.
