My Wolf and Me is a gripping story that I would say is suitable for older YA. It tells the story of a young country girl, getting lost in her imagination each day. She meets, and befriends a pair of wolves, and her games continue. Her world changes though when one wolf disappears, and the other is seriously injured. Marlena learns that they were shifters, and it is now up to her to look after 'Romy'.
The only way I can describe this book is to say that it is innocent! There is a deep bond between Romy and Marlena, but it is a pure one. There is nothing underhand or dark about it at all. If anything, some of the best parts of the book come when Romy goes through the change and becomes Sebastian. Some of the things he comes out with had me laughing out loud. Then again, his behaviour as Romy was humorous too! Throw two male best friends into the mix, and you have quite the comedic situation. However, the story does get darker, and Romy/Sebastian and Marlena are in incredible danger. Things happen, information is given, and their world is turned upside down.
Once again, I loved this book. The epilogue was perfect, and gave me the closure I needed for Hound and T. There were some questions raised by the ending, like "Who were they? Where did they come from? How long have they been around?" To be honest though, those questions only arose after I had finished the book, and had chance to digest. Not knowing the answers to the questions, or even knowing that I had questions, didn't ruin the book at all for me. I was completely engrossed, gripped by every word, every scene. I really hope that there is a second book to be made. Perhaps then some of those questions will be answered. Honestly though, I'm just not ready to leave Romy/Sebastian! Highly recommended by me.
