Puffin, 2011. ISBN 9780141333397
(Ages 12+) Wereworld is about 16 year old Drew. When a beast invades his home and kills his mother who he loved very much his father blames him and he is forced to leave his home. Drew seeks refuge in the Dyrewood one of the most dangerous places in all of Lyssia. When he is captured by Lord Bergan's men he has to prove he is not the enemy. Through many events he meets new friends, makes many enemies and learns about the animal within. But will he be able to stop the werecreatures out to destroy him and master the animal within before its too late?
At first this book isn't very interesting; it's good but not very interesting. But when I got to part VI (6) it became extremely interesting and went from good to great. I would recommend this book to people that like fantasy, adventure and don't mind waiting awhile to get to the best part of the book.
