Fifteen-year-old Jimmy Lagrange likes cheeseburgers, video games, and girls. He makes better than average grades in school, and he stays in shape with weightlifting, tennis, and Taekwondo.
And, one night a month when the moon is full, between midnight and dawn, his blood boils and his joints ache and every cell in his body howls with an insatiable hunger for flesh. His teeth become fangs. His hands become claws. His eyes glow red and a coarse coat of brown and black fur covers his body.
Tonight’s the night.
Jimmy only knows of one way to stop the transformation--a prescription sedative he buys for ten dollars a tablet from a dealer at school. He scores the pill, and spends most of sixth period and an hour of detention afterward trying to convince his girlfriend Loren that he doesn’t need counseling for drug abuse. Loren’s not buying it, though, and when they get to her house she manages to flush Jimmy’s “dope” down the toilet.
Now, with no way to stop himself from morphing into a snarling, bloodthirsty beast at midnight, Jimmy heads home. Maybe he can sneak deep into the woods, where there’s no chance of harming another person. Maybe he can borrow ten dollars from Mom and find another dose of medication on the street.
Unfortunately, when he turns the key and opens the front door, Jimmy Lagrange’s problems multiply exponentially.
RED MOON. They say there’s nothing more frightening than a werewolf...
