Birth of the Pack by Petru Popescu

Birth of the Pack is about four sixteen-year-old girls who start a girls' soccer club at their school since it doesn't have an official team for girls. They've been playing together since they were little, and Lily's father christianed them the Weregirls. Of course, that name meant more than they thought. What starts out as a book about soccer has a supernatural twist to it! Soon they're involved in a major battle between good and evil.

Birth of the Pack is, overall, a pretty interesting book. It does drag a little, and the characters can be a little flat, but fans of the supernatural should enjoy it well enough. A little more action and a faster pace would be good, but there are certainly worse books out there! I also enjoyed the soccer, being a soccer fan. Birth of the Pack is a decent book but by no means outstanding.
