Silver Moon Elm by Mary Janice Davidson and Anthony Alongi

Jennifer Scales is a teenage girl that is part weredragon and part beaststalker. Her father and her took her mother to Cresent Valley, the place for weredragons, and a couple of the weredragons there did not like her mother at all. So when they left, her mother and her got in a fight and then her father and her mother also got in a fight because of that. Her mother took off in the car and Jennifer had no clue where she drove off too. She had just gotten used to her life when her ex-boyfriend, Skip, took her to the movies. She woke up the next morning in a world that was completely different. It was overrun by werachnids, the enemies of weredragons. Only Skip and her are the only good people that know the world has changed but Jennifer doesn't want to believe it. Her parents are seemingly both gone, and most of the weredragons, if not all, are also gone. The rest of the people that were in the world before, are still in this new world, except they are changed with new feelings and behaviors. Jennifer must survive through werachnid school, try to see if her parents are in this world or not, and save the world.

I thought this was a very nice book. It was written very well, with lots of descriptions of characters and the setting. Even though I have not read the first two books in this series, I could understand it pretty easilly. It is filled with minor flashbacks that go back to the previous books. The plot was very unique because of all the twists involved. I look forward to actually going back and rereading the entire series.

There is some swearing and minor violence involved.
